Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » 2 Title Tag Showing in the HTML

  • Resolved Saswata Baksi


    Hello There,

    I don’t have any other SEO plugin except Yoast, but when I checked the source code there are two title tags showing.

    I guess one by default and one by Yoast, is not possible to disable either 1 of them?

    Some SEO audit tools, flag this.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • I had read somewhere you could add this to your child theme functions file
    add_filter( 'wpseo_title', '__return_false' );

    Though I’ve tried that and it doesn’t seem to for me. But then I’m using Oxygen (a plugin) instead of a theme.

    I’m currently looking for a way to have Yoast’s version stop injecting itself into the HTML of a page. I’ve even tried this:
    remove_action( 'wp_head', '_wp_render_title_tag', 1 );
    with no effect.

    If anyone else is using Oxygen and has a suggestion, I am open to it!

    Hey, here’s the solution(snippet) though they fixed it in 3.9.1 beta, hopefully, get the update soon.

    Hi @amsaswata & @cenay

    We understand it’s outputting two <title> tags in the page source.

    If your theme is compatible with WordPress 4.1 and newer versions, it should declare theme support for the title-tag and remove all <title> calls from theme files to support dynamic titles.

    Otherwise, if your theme does not declare support for the title-tag feature, you have two options: edit your theme files or use the force a rewrite option.

    You can learn more about it here –

    @mikes41720 Thanks for the reply, but did you hear the part about my situation being Oxygen? It’s not a theme. In fact, it disabled the theme system entirely. So I believe they are just allowing the WordPress code to “flow through”.

    @amsaswata — are you referring to the snippet I posted? Or did you forget to include the snippet that is the fix? I’m confused.
