  • You have 2 title tags in your theme head index.php

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_title

    I looked in header file in my theme and i only saw one??? checkout the code from my header file:

    <?php
    /**
     * The Header for our theme.
     *
     * Displays all of the <head> section and everything up till <div id="main">
     *
     * @package WordPress
     * @subpackage Starkers
     * @since Starkers 3.0
     */
    ?><!DOCTYPE html>
    <html <?php language_attributes(); ?>>
    <head>
    <meta charset="<?php bloginfo( 'charset' ); ?>" />
    
    <title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title>
    
    <link rel="profile" href="http://gmpg.org/xfn/11" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" href="<?php bloginfo( 'stylesheet_url' ); ?>" />
    <link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo( 'pingback_url' ); ?>" />
    <?php
    	/* We add some JavaScript to pages with the comment form
    	 * to support sites with threaded comments (when in use).
    	 */
    	if ( is_singular() && get_option( 'thread_comments' ) )
    		wp_enqueue_script( 'comment-reply' );
    
    	/* Always have wp_head() just before the closing </head>
    	 * tag of your theme, or you will break many plugins, which
    	 * generally use this hook to add elements to <head> such
    	 * as styles, scripts, and meta tags.
    	 */
    	wp_head();
    ?>
    </head>
    
    <body <?php body_class(); ?>>

    OK

    Then I assume you have all in one SEO or something similar installed.

    And you / it adds the titles in addition to std wp.

    You will notice the 2 titles are not identical; the seond misses a |

    So it got entered manually somewhere; or whatever adds it strips the |; but the first funciton that adds the title; does not replace the |.

    I have the “Yoast, SEO WordPress” installed for my wordpress site, and “Ultimate SEO titles” installed for my phpbb forum, (because i have a phpbb/wordpress integration..) Do you think they are somehow trying to accomplish the same thing together and duplicating titles? I’m a bit lost on this…

    my phpbb forum is located here in the root:
    http://www.phone7forum.com

    and my wordpress integration is located here:
    http://www.phone7forum.com/wp7/

    Do you think they are somehow trying to accomplish the same thing together and duplicating titles? I’m a bit lost on this…

    YES

    Investigate both these plugin options in admin; decide on ONE to use; and deactivate the other.

    You have to decide based on your needs and how well you understand their functions.

    Once you are a SEO expert THEN you can install more that one seo plugin ; because you will undertand when they step on each other’s toes.

    Problem Fixed! I went into the Yoast SEO plugin and chose “Force rewrite titles” and then set the titles up accordingly. Pretty easy fix. So glad I don’t have to go into some core files and do some tweeking.. thanks for the guidance!
