    Hi all,

    I am a bit new to wp and I am loving everything about it. However I have ran into a problem while using the SEO plugin by Yoast. I understand how to use the plugin as I have read many articles on it, but I cannot for the life of me figure how how to get my wp title and description when trying share just my homepage. Also, I am using the responsive theme. Here is the problem:

    When I share http://www.theamericanpatriotblog.com/ on facebook it shows up as:

    Your Page Title
    http://www.theamericanpatriotblog.com/

    Now, I have a page that I created and called it home. When I share the page http://www.theamericanpatriotblog.com/home/ on facebook it shows up as:

    The American Patriot Blog
    http://www.theamericanpatriotblog.com/home/
    Destroying liberal ideology on post at a time. Follow this blog if you are interested in the Constitution and upholding it's true meaning.

    ^^Which is exactly what I want. Here are some of my settings:

    Under setting->reading:
    I have it set to front page displays latest post....which it obviously isn't if you visit my site.
    For some reason I can't use the option to use a static page, as the front page and posts pages get swapped(have no clue why and it really pisses me off) and the front page loses its background. But that is a whole other issue.

    Here is what my <title> is in my header.php:

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

    I also have "Force rewrite titles" checked in Yoast. Please help. sorry for being all over the place, but I wanted to give as much info as I could. I just want to be able to share http://www.theamericanpatriotblog.com and have the correct information.
