[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Post and Page Titles Not Changing (1 post)

    WordPress version: 3.4
    WordPress SEO version: 1.2.2
    Theme: Arras version

    I installed this plugin, migrating from All-in-One SEO. Under Titles & Metas I configured my post titles to be the following:

    %%title%% %%sep%% %%sitename%%

    I expected the plugin to change the post titles to match that format but they did not. Initially the home page's title was also not being updated, but then I went into my theme's header.php and configured it so it would display:

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

    Once I did that, the home page's title was properly changing, but post and page titles remain the same. I searched for something in the theme that would explain why posts and pages had a different header but I don't understand why that would be the case. Both the page.php and single.php have:

    <?php get_header(); ?>

    And from what I understand that means it'll insert whatever is in header.php

    Oh, and I tried checking the force rewrite titles box too. When I did, the home page title changed, but none of the post or page titles did. That was before I edited the header.php though, as once I did that checking off the box was unnecessary.
