[Resolved] [Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Are SEO Titles not automatically filled in anymore?

  • http://addicted-gamers.com

    I noticed the other day when I posted a couple of links on our facebook that there weren’t any titles for the articles. You can see it on the last three posts compared to the previous ones. I thought there might be a problem with the SEO so I dug as much as I could.

    I came to realize that the SEO Title is no longer automatically generated off of your Snippet Preview when you create posts. You now have to hit the button to generate it.

    My question is, is that intentional or will there be an auto-generate fix? The only reason I ask is I have some “editors” working on the page that are rather stubborn when being asked to do certain technical things in posts, and yes, even something as simple as clicking that button will be a pain to keep up on.

  • A note, I generated SEO titles in the articles on those 3 posts. I have since deleted them on Facebook in order to relink them. Facebook still doesn’t show any title, so I’m still wondering if even after generating the SEO title if maybe it isn’t being recognized.

    You will still be able to go to our Facebook link and see the very first article still has no title where the -addicted-gamers.com is instead of a full title and url.

    Titles don’t seem to be working for me either. Posts now don’t have the site’s name.

    What are your templates under SEO -> Titles?

    So this is where I’m not the most proficient as I’m not even entirely sure how the templates work. Before the update, I didn’t have any templates defined.

    Now, I also don’t, but I don’t entirely know how they work either. If I create a template, should it be generic that it will be the same for every post or will the plugin create a unique title based on the template for each post?

    Either way, like I said, before the update, it seemed fine, essentially taking care of it all automatically for me. Now, it doesn’t seem to be. This is the part where I should be dedicating more time to learning and knowing this stuff anyway.

    Try setting a template like this:

    %%title%% - %%sitename%%

    And see if the output is any better…

    My Title template was already set to %%title%% - %%sitename%%.

    That seemed to do the trick. Thanks.

    @rickrottman: and it doesn’t work?

    @ag_mike: ok cool.

    No, individual posts only have the post’s title, not the site name.

    Rick: and your sitename is not empty?

    No, the site name appears everywhere else, just not on individual posts.

    Hey All,

    Well I thought id ask a Question here since its on a similar subject.

    I have SEO by Yoast installed on my word press site. But I wanted to know how and if there’s a way to make all the SEO wording be entered automatically from posts into the sections ?
