    You have to edit the header.php file and add this line:

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

    instead of the title line you have from your template...

    hello i having the same problem but with the keywords and the description meta tags. the plugin is not changing these tags to the one the i input when creating the page. instead its pulling the one from the default theme. (Boldy Theme). is there any way that i can fix this. I dont know too much about php but i took a look at the header.php file and thats what those tags are colling is there any way that i can make it called the wordpress SEO meta keywords and description that i change when i create a page or a post. Thank you in advance for reading this email.

    Bellow is the code that i have in the header.php file

    <title><?php wp_title('«', true, 'right'); ?> <?php bloginfo('name'); ?></title>
    <meta name="keywords" content="<?php echo get_option('boldy_keywords'); ?>" />
    <meta name="description" content="<?php echo get_option('boldy_description'); ?>" />

    it is likely that you need to remove this build-in code from your header:

    <meta name="keywords" content="<?php echo get_option('boldy_keywords'); ?>" />
    <meta name="description" content="<?php echo get_option('boldy_description'); ?>" />

    make a backup copy before editing; and see if that change gets the plugin seo meta to show.

    Thank you for responding. However, i removed the code from my headed but, but it did not work. If i delete the code it doesn't call anything so my guess is thats why it didnt display anything. Do you happen to know if i chage the boldy_desprition part to called the action of the plugin?

    how did you check this?

    did you look int the html code of your site in the browser?

    any changes in the search engine results will take a long while.

    guvenp: you've got two title tags in your theme now.

    Since installing the latest version 0.3.2, I am seeing stray characters in my title (home page only). http://rsanwes.com

    I can't find where my theme the characters are coming from.

    Have uninstalled and reinstalled but have seen no change.

    Dude, you've got all sorts of crap within your title tags on rsanews.com:

    <style>
    			.fpb_media
    			{
    				padding: 5px;
    				margin: 5;
    			}
    			.fpb_plain
    			{
    				background: #F3F3F2; padding:5px; margin:3px; border:1px solid #E3E1DB;
    			}
    			</style>
    
    		<div class="fpb_media">
    				</div>

    That's not my plugin doing that but another one...

    I've determined that the plugin WP Front Page Burner is the source of the rouge code popping up in the title area. The plugin had been working properly until now. But after some testing, it appears to no longer work. Thank you for checking.

    Theme Compatibility - PremiumPress.com Directory Press theme

    Testing with version 0.3.5, I experienced two serious outcomes which may mean that there is an incompatibility with the Directory Press theme.

    1) The theme limits the keyword search results to posts so page results are not displayed. When I searched for a word that is present in both post title and page content with the seo plugin enabled, content from a page replaced the post content in the search results. The mismatch is very confusing to a reader.

    2) A similar corruption of search results occurred where, after the seo options had been set on a post, a search by a category that would include the post in the search results came back with the post content from the subject post shown on many posts instead of the actual post content from those posts. In a few instances where there were many results, it seemed to be only the first page of results that were displayed with the mismatched content.

    Changing the theme to the the default 2010 with the plug-in enabled corrected the behavior. Disabling the seo plug-in returns the directory press theme to normal function. Testing was done with no other plug-in active using directory press v6.15 and wp 3.12.

    I'm bummed out about this because the plug-in is awesome.

    I'm sorry I've recently checked the code for that DirectoryPress theme and it's so bad that I won't be able to support that. Go to the developer and tell him about these issues, he might be able to fix them.
