[resolved] Dodgy Website Title (3 posts)

    Hey, I know I'm not using the standard form, but this is something really simple...

    Take a look at my site title that appears on your browser tab, or at the top of your browser window. It's combining the Site Title and the SEO Title and looks wrong!


    How do I fix it?



  2. Under the WordPress SEO settings on the first page (I think) it tells you that the plugin needs to use wp_title() and there's a checkbox asking you to overwrite what's in your theme.

    You could try to do that.

    Or, just edit your theme files and make sure that your header.php uses..
    <title><?php wp_title();?></title> only.

    Thanks, that really helped. I edited the header.php, I couldn't quite understand the settings in the SEO Settings.

    This is what it looked like before I changed it...

    <?php wp_title('-', true, 'right'); ?>
    <?php bloginfo('name'); ?>
