    i want to fix the way my site title appears in all the search engines. i'm using raindrops version 0.977. i installed wp seo yoast & at around that time my site title started having a verticle line show up at the front of the title in search---i can't copy & paste it for you to see, so google "galli insurance" (its the top of the search page.) so this vertical bar is on everyone one of my menu pages if you look. how do i remove it? i,m not a coder, how do i get rid of that line? i'm afraid i will crash the site. i've already crashed it once, big headache. thanks, i'm new at this.

    Here's what it looks like: How do I get to the section to delete the line in the title at the beginning?

    <meta http-equiv="content-style-type" content="text/css" />
    <title> | Galli Insurance, Jackson, California</title>
    <link rel="pingback" href="http://www.galliinsurance.com/

    This is from your site source code:

    <title> | Galli Insurance, Jackson, California</title>

    The vertical bar (separator) is between the title tags. You can find that on line 44 in the header.php file of your current theme. Here's what it looks like in the file.

    <title><?php wp_title('|', true, 'right')?></title>

    As always, no matter how small the editing task, make sure you have a complete backup of your files before editing.

    Try removing just the bar. It should look like this after:

    <title><?php wp_title('', true, 'right')?></title>

    You're welcome! The search listings probably won't update until the next time you get crawled.
