Blog name duplicated in RSS feed name.

  • I am writing about my blog at DTPOTP.com — when I subscribe to the RSS feed via google reader, my name is repeated like this: DTP OTPDTP OTP. How can I fix this display error?

  • It is not a problem with Google Reader, but your RSS feed http://www.dtpotp.com/feed/ has the title set as DTP OTPDTP OTP. Reset it.

    How do I reset it?

    If you have setup the feed from a text widget, either post the correct title in the box for title or leave it blank and save it.

    I just have the sidebar widget from Jetpack set up and there is no place to enter the blog name there.

    Hi DTOPOTP
    Did you resolve this? I have the same problem:
    http://www.elated.co.za/feed
    feed.feedburner.com/elated
    the name appears as ElatedElated
    Any help will be appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Nope, I never did! Couldn’t find an explanation that made any sense.

    Check your theme’s functions.php file for a function that is being added via the wp_title() filter. If it uses the code suggested in this Codex page, then that’s where the problem will be. The code is flawed and results in a duplicated title in RSS feeds. I’m currently investigating the correct way to amend the code to stop this happening.

    And I’ve now corrected the example code in that Codex page to stop the RSS title duplicating.

    Hi Esmi. Thanks, but I’m not clued enough to know what to change. Nothing in the functions.php looks anything like the example.

    Is this what you’re referring to?

    // Action Hook
    add_action( 'widgets_init', 'birdtips_widgets_init' );
    add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'birdtips_setup' );
    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'birdtips_scripts' );
    add_filter( 'get_search_form', 'birdtips_search_form' );
    add_filter( 'wp_title', 'birdtips_title' );
    add_theme_support( 'automatic-feed-links' );

    or this?

    // Document Title
    function birdtips_title( $title ) {
    	global $page, $paged;
    
    	$title .= get_bloginfo( 'name' );
    	$site_description = get_bloginfo( 'description', 'display' );
    
    	if ( $site_description && ( is_home() || is_front_page() ) )
    		$title .= " | $site_description";
    
    	if ( $paged >= 2 || $page >= 2 )
    		$title .= ' | ' . sprintf( __( 'Page %s', 'birdtips' ), max( $paged, $page ) );
    
    	return $title;
    }

    Thanks!

    I think it’s the second function that is to blame. Try replacing it with:

    // Document Title
    function birdtips_title( $title ) {
    	global $page, $paged;
    	$title .= get_bloginfo( 'name' );
    	if( !is_feed() ) {
    		$site_description = get_bloginfo( 'description', 'display' );
    		if ( $site_description && ( is_home() || is_front_page() ) )
    			$title .= " | $site_description";
    		if ( $paged >= 2 || $page >= 2 )
    			$title .= ' | ' . sprintf( __( 'Page %s', 'birdtips' ), max( $paged, $page ) );
    	}
    	return $title;
    }

    thanks, no it didn’t work. My home page redirects to my index page, as I wanted the home page to be the blog roll. Is that the problem?

    The changes I suggested shouldn’t affect that.
