Support » Fixing WordPress » Double titles in RSS feed. HELP!!!

  • I’m having issues with double titles in my RSS feed. The title appears as:

    Preserving YorkPreserving York

    I’ve looked through the settings and do not see a way to correct thins. If it a WordPress issue, a theme issue, or some other issue?

    look through this in your coding if it’s double remove one for the title 🙂 better to see the documentation

    Documenation Link For Rss Feed

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    Esmi, are there specific types of plugins than can cause issues? I was also curious if using Feedburner could cause any issues.

    Deactivating plugins now.

    I deactivated ALL plugins and the results were the same. I changed to the Twenty Eleven theme but the results were also the same. If you go to the URL of my feed ( you can see the problem in the TITLE tag.

    Can we see the site with all plugins deactivated please?

    All plugins are now currently deactivated.

    Sorry but you’re using Weaver. You need to switch to the original, unedited, Twenty Eleven theme.

    Sorry about that. Theme is now Twenty Eleven.

    …and the double title in your RSS feed has now vanished.

    So it looks like a problem within the Weaver theme. As this is fairly complex theme with many of its own setting, try posting on the theme’s dedicated forum: It might be worth referencing this thread just to prove that you have gone through all of the basic troubleshooting steps already.

    Thanks so much. I’m guess when I looked I should have cleared my cache, as I was still seeing the double titles.

    It’s always worth pressing CTRL and F5 simultaneously (aka “a hard refresh”) when viewing an updated page/site. 🙂

    Thanks esmi. I posted to the Weaver forum, so I’m hoping to find a solution. In addition to the problem I mentioned previously, when I look at the coding of my feed in IE9 and Firefox, it shows:

    <title>Preserving York</title>

    …but if I look in Chrome, it shows:

    <title>Preserving YorkPreserving York</title>

    Odd indeed.

    Regardless, thanks for helping pinpoint the theme as the culprit.

    After corresponding with some Weaver folks, I was told that theme has nothing to do with feeds, and the problem is WordPress related. So, where do I go from here?

    Could someone please look at my feed in Google Reader, which should have the double blog title shown.

    Someone pointed out that my home page markup may be causing the problem:

    <h1 id="site-title"><span><a href="" title="Preserving York" rel="home">Preserving York</a></span></h1>

    This person said “both the anchor text and the link title are identical. Likely they are getting stitched together”.

    The CSS in header.php is shown like this:

    <h1 id="site-title"<?php echo weaverii_hide_site_title();?>><span><a>" title="<?php echo esc_attr( get_bloginfo( 'name', 'display' ) ); ?>" rel="home"<?php weaverii_hide_site_title();?>><?php echo $title; ?></a></span></h1>


    Only it doesn’t say that. It reads,
    <h1 id="site-title"><span><a href="" rel="home">Preserving York</a></span></h1>

    The title=”Preserving York” is not there.

    I run weaver-ii-pro and I compared the source code. Are you using Weaver as SEO? If so, check the SEO tags there and make sure you don’t have a title there. Weaver should pick that up from WordPress settings, general.
