Make double page name (6 posts)

    WordPress version:3.5
    WordPress SEO version:

    When I have the plugin activated I am getting a double site title on all my pages and posts.

    Here is my site: http://thecashlab.com/

    The home page currently shows "Make Money Online - The Cash Lab."

    That's all well and good, but if I update my site title (Settings > General) from "." to "The Cash Lab" my homepage would show "Make Money Online - The Cash LabThe Cash Lab" which is obviously bad.

    Notice the weird repeated site title?

    If I disable the plugin it would just show "." (without the quotes obviously).

    That is because WordPress SEO generates the first part "Make Money Online - The Cash Lab" and then adds on whatever value was found in the Site Title field, which I currently have set to "." but I need to update it to the actual site name because that placeholder gets used in other areas (emails for example).

    I have tried force rewrite titles but it does not work.

    Any help very much appreciated.

    My very same problem. :(

    On homepage I have title and headline repeated, while on single pages just the title.

    Here a couple of examples:

    Hey guys...

    I had this happen to me before. In my case, I had to go into my theme editor in wordpress and alter the header.php file. If you look in there you might see a bunch of if then statements in between the <title> and </title>.

    That is where my problem was. I replaced the line with this

    <title><?php wp_title(); ?></title>

    If you make any changes to your theme, make sure you make a backup of the file before you modify it.

    As ptted say: replace any code between de title tag in header.php with <?php wp_title(); ?> .
