    So Yoast says

    Be aware that for WordPress SEO to be able to modify your page titles, the title section of your header.php file should look like this:

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

    My title tag is as shown.
    <title><?php

    if ( is_single() ) { single_post_title(); }

    elseif ( is_home() || is_front_page() ) { bloginfo('name'); print ' | '; bloginfo('description'); get_page_number(); }

    elseif ( is_page() ) { single_post_title(''); }

    elseif ( is_search() ) { bloginfo('name'); print ' | Search results for ' . wp_specialchars($s); get_page_number(); }

    elseif ( is_404() ) { bloginfo('name'); print ' | Not Found'; }

    else { bloginfo('name'); wp_title('|'); get_page_number(); }

    ?></title>

    So do I change wp_title('|') to wp_title('') or do I replace everything above with wp_title('')

    Thanks

    Let me refraze the question.

    Should my title look like this

    <title>wp_title("")</tittle>

    or like it currently is (see below) which includes wp_title('|')

    <title><?php

    if ( is_single() ) { single_post_title(); }

    elseif ( is_home() || is_front_page() ) { bloginfo('name'); print ' | '; bloginfo('description'); get_page_number(); }

    elseif ( is_page() ) { single_post_title(''); }

    elseif ( is_search() ) { bloginfo('name'); print ' | Search results for ' . wp_specialchars($s); get_page_number(); }

    elseif ( is_404() ) { bloginfo('name'); print ' | Not Found'; }

    else { bloginfo('name'); wp_title('|'); get_page_number(); }

    ?></title>

    It should look as stated in the settings, so indeed:

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

    And yes that's a whole lot of code to remove :)

    Thanks Joost I actually used the admin supplied check box then checked my code and it was as you stated.
