[resolved] [Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Blog Name appears twice in headers (3 posts)

    WordPress version: 3.4
    WordPress SEO version: 1.2.5

    I input my desired SEO title for both posts and pages, "%%title%% • %%sitename%%" and then noticed that my title was displaying my blog name twice. If I leave my site name blank in the WordPress general settings, then the site name only appears once, so I think bloginfo(); isn't being overriden in the titles.

    I applied the force override in the plugin's general settings, but I still have the site name appearing twice.

    I am also having this problem here: http://www.fromaway.com

    I'd love to hear a solution.

    Hey ultamalcom,

    Ultimately, I found that it was because I was using a Child Theme, which the plugin doesn't override. Specifically, I had tweaked the header.php page and had to take out the bloginfo() and wp_title() php calls (one or both, can't remember).

    Hope that helps
