Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » [Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Site Title Appearing in Header of Pages

  • This is the header.php title tag:

    <title><?php
    global $page, $paged;
    wp_title( '|', true, 'right' );
    bloginfo( 'name' );
    if ( $paged >= 2 || $page >= 2 ) echo ' | ' . sprintf( __( 'Page %s', 'doover' ), max( $paged, $page ) );
    ?>
    </title>

    And here’s what the theme is using for the page h1 tags:

    <h1><?php echo trim( wp_title( '', false ) ); ?></h1>

    I don’t know that much about PHP but I think forcing the titles or editing that would mess up other features of the theme? I don’t like how the title of the site is included in the h1, I’d only want the title to appear.

  • The Blog Title Appears Next to H1 Title in Header?

    WordPress version: 3.4.1
    WordPress SEO version: 1.2.5

    My theme uses the following title PHP code in the header.php file:

    <title><?php
    global $page, $paged;
    wp_title( '|', true, 'right' );
    bloginfo( 'name' );
    if ( $paged >= 2 || $page >= 2 ) echo ' | ' . sprintf( __( 'Page %s', 'doover' ), max( $paged, $page ) );
    ?>
    </title>

    Then it also uses the following php title code for the header and h1 tag:

    <h1><?php echo trim( wp_title( '', false ) ); ?></h1>

    So in the h1 I get TITLE – WEBSITE.COM, instead of just TITLE.

    This is extremely annoying since you obviously don’t want the website/blog name appearing within the h1 tag, only as part of the pages title.

    I tried editing the header.php and h1 code to:

    <h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1>

    and it worked but then the blog page was messed up…. Not sure what’s going on 🙁

    thanks in advance.

    We’re having a similar issue. The “SEO title” we set using the plugin overrides the post title we display on the page as the H1.

    If we use a custom field to set the meta title then it works fine and leaves the post title as is
