Support » Plugins » Genesis, Yoast, and Simple:Press

  • I’m having problems getting Simple:Press forums to work correctly since moving my site over to the Genesis framework. I’m using the Yoast SEO plugin.

    My forums are here:

    The problem (I think) is with the Title tags. If you go to the forums and view the page source, you can see that the forums are generating the title without the title tags.

    Also, it’s adding a strange space above the header and displaying the title of the current forum page in that space. And, the browser title is just showing the url rather than the page title.

    I can play around with the SEO settings to make it so the gray bar doesn’t show up and that it displays “Forums” as the page title. But if I do that it displays “Forums” for every forum page and topic and I want it to show the topic title to avoid the duplicate title penalty from Google.

    I’ve seen a few other people with this problem doing a Google search, but none of the problems have really been answered. Simple:Press makes you pay $36 for three months of support, which I had paid once (it expired) and I don’t really want to pay it again.

    The answer on this page seems like it would work:

    However, I think the Genesis framework treats the title tag differently because when I go into my header.php the <title> <php wp_title ();?> isn’t there and I saw this on the Simple:Press twitter page:

    I’m sure there’s a simple solution to this, but I don’t really know any php, so I don’t know what the work around is. If anyone could help me that would be awesome.
