    Hi guys, I am having the following problem with the SEO plugin...

    WordPress version: 3.4.2
    WordPress SEO version:

    I did this: Installing the latest version of the SEO plugin and activating it.

    I expected the plugin to do this: Show the title in the same way as without having the plugin activated. When opening my wordpress site the title is MySite | Just another WordPress site

    Instead it did this:
    When plugin activated it shows the title twice "MySite | Just another WordPress siteMySite | Just another WordPress site"

    There are no other plugins activated and I used the wordpress standard theme. My colleague could replicate this error on his install as well.

    Do you have the same problem? What could I do to solve this?

    My themes:
    1.Premium Press
    2.Catch Box
    I've checked "Force rewrite titles" in the Premium Press and unchecked this in a Catch Box - the same result
