How to get rid of this tiny symbol? (7 posts)

    Here is my website: howtofocusbetter.com

    If you open up Google Chrome, on the tab it says:

    |How To Focus Better

    How can I get rid of the "|" before "How" so that this symbol doesn't show up?

    It happens in other browsers too.

    When I look at the source code in Firefox it shows

    <title>| How To Focus Better</title>

    It looks as though you may have put that symbol in your site title by mistake when you were setting up the site.

    Go to Admin -> Settings -> General and have a look what it says for the site title there

    Are you using an SEO plugin?

    Hi, I went to Admin, Settings, General and my site title just says: How To Focus Better (without the |)

    Currently, I am using two SEO Plugins:

    1. Platinum SEO
    2. SEO Pressor

    Will this affect it? Is it possible to still get rid of it?

    Have you tried switching to the Twenty Ten theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    I'm currently using a paid theme called Linen Pro. I was thinking, maybe I could go into the source code and delete the "|" somewhere? As lockettpots suggested, it could be a symbol in my site title. The question is where can I go to do this?

    the | character does not seem to be coming from the code in header.php -
    double check the settings aand options of your seo plugins.

    what happens if you deactivate both seo plugins?

    Thank you Alchymthy, you're right. I removed one of the SEO plugins and the symbol disappeared. The SEO plugin I deactivated was called, "Platinum SEO Pack." Do you know if there is anyway I can still use both without interference?
