the wrong titles are displayed on posts and pages (7 posts)

    I have version 1.1.2 installed on one site. The titles show up wrong. A title from one post or page displays on a different post or page, with many pages repeating the same incorrect title.

    My sites with version 1.0.3 work fine. I have tried reloading version 1.0.3 on this site, to no avail. My guess is there were some database changes between 1.0.3 and 1.1.2. If that's the case is there some way to remove the database so I can really start over fresh with 1.0.3?

    Same happened to me if i use %%title%%. One title shows for every post. If i removed this i get the title of my blog first ant then the title of the post. How can i put the title of my blog after the title of the post?

    To add more details, the title that appears most frequently is the title of the first post created. If I turn that post back into a draft, then the title that gets displayed on various pages is really the title of the second oldest post. Once the original is republished, it once again represents the title that gets used most frequently.

    I can also confirm that I am using %%title%% as the code. If I turn off rewrite then normal blog name and titles get displayed.

    Check your theme file header.php

    it should have only this title code:

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

    Also you can try to clear your browser cache with CTRL+F5.

    Title code is OK. Clearing with CTRL-F5 makes no difference.

    Wow, found the problem. One of my widgets was screwing things up. How is that even possible? Oh well, glad to have the answer. If anyone else see this problem, try removing widgets one at a time. The problem for me was with "recent posts plus".
