[resolved] Problem with page titles not changing (8 posts)

    Hello,

    I've just updated to WP SEO 1.1.7 and using WP 3.3.2 with the Shelflife WooCommerce theme.

    The site is located [Here]

    Since updating the plugin today, I've noticed that the title bar across the top of the browser has the title of the last added product, it also has that title for my contact page.

    I've disabled all plugins with no change, and have force rewrite checked. I've changed the <head> tag to match what is specified in the docs. When turning off force rewrite or disabling the plugin, the titles work properly. The titles work properly with categories and with the homepage template - so it appears to only be on the pages and products that I add.

    The theme's framework is the most recent version and the default WooThemes SEO is turned off. I've tried Firefox and IE8 and have cleared cache with no change. The titles worked properly before I updated.

    I've searched the support forums and can't seem to find the issue here, any ideas??

    What's the code in the <title> area of your header file?

    <title><?php woo_title(); ?></title>

    What happens if you change that to:

    <title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title>

    No change in what exactly? Can you tell me exactly what you're doing, expecting and seeing instead?

    On my homepage the correct title shows that I have pre defined in title template. However, in clicking on the Contact Us or Privacy Policy links, the pre defined Homepage title shows - instead of the SEO title that I defined when creating the page. So when looking at my Privacy Policy page, the top title of the browser says "Buy SEO Now - Your source for all SEO related needs for your site" instead of "Privacy Policy - Buy SEO Now" that I added to the individual page.

    All of my products have "350 Page Rank 4 Backlinks - Buy SEO Now" instead of the SEO title that I defined on each individual product. So the product "100 .edu backlinks" at http://buyseonow.org/product/100-edu-backlinks/ has "350 Page Rank 4 Backlinks - Buy SEO Now" listed at the top.

    I bet it's a problem in your theme, switch to the default theme and I bet it'll turn to normal. Unfortunately for you I won't be helping you out more than this, as your site sells stuff that is the radical opposite of the type of white hat SEO practice I stand for.
