WordPress SEO by Yoast
Page titles changed to SEO titles (9 posts)

    WordPress version: 3.4.1
    WordPress SEO version: 1.2.5

    I did this: I edited the SEO titles to include my post title & site name.

    I expected the plugin to do this: Only change the SEO title (for search engines).

    Instead it did this: Changed the page title, so when I visit the page the SEO title shows up instead of the page title.

    In the page editor, the titles show up normally, but when visiting the page, the SEO title appears instead.

    Thanks for the help; I have tried messing with the various plugin title settings.

    Also saw this happen on one site. Posts were OK, pages and category pages were swapping the SEO title for the on-page title.

    Same here - the breadcrumbs show the seo title when I need them to show the navigation/page title obviously.

    I solved my little problem with the seo title showing in breadcrumbs instead of the navigation title. I'm not sure if it would help with the original question but may provide a clue.
    In the theme's breadcrumbs.php, I changed:

    <?php } elseif (is_page()) { ?>
    					<?php wp_title(''); ?>

    To:

    <?php } elseif (is_page()) { ?>
    					<?php the_title(''); ?>

    Has anyone figured this out for page titles yet?

    What I'm seeing looks right for page titles:
    if I add a specific seo title for a page in the yoast box, it shows up as the seo title but doesn't change the WP page title.
    if I don't, it defaults to the title template for the type of page in the yoast settings ("titles and metas") but again doesn't change the WP page title.

    I am now having this problem, did anyone ever find a fix?

    My SEO title overwrites the page titles, and also displays same in breadcrumbs, It worked fine until I did a theme update recently..

    hmmm
