    Bill, what does the header of your theme look like?

    Hey, this is happening to me too.
    I’ve send you and email Joost.

    I have the latest version of the plugin (the one you launched today?) and it still doesn’t work.

    my header looks like this:

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

    And I also have set the “force rewrite”.
    It was working before the last 2 updates…

    I’ve just unchekecd the “force rewrite” and now it’s working again! 🙂

    Just a quick update I was having the exact same problem. Posts were having the wrong title (for instance they were having the title of the previous post applied to the title by the plugin).

    Hiulit: that fixed it for me too 🙂 Thanks.

    I am having this problem on a site using version I have to check the Force Rewrite option to get the titles to work properly.

    I do not have the problem on other sites using version 1.0.1, so something seems to have broken in the newer version.

    By the way, all theme headers are the same:
    <title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title>

    My apologies, this conversation was grabbed by my spam filter (and I was very bad about not checking my spam folder…). This was a case of operator head space (mine). There was an error in header.php that I was starting at and not seeing.

    I get the same error even with the twentyeleven theme.

    do it do it manually, replace everything between <title> and </title> tags in header.php, it should be just like WordPress SEO Yoast requires – <title><?php wp_title(”); ?></title>

    Aleksandra, that is how the title tags are setup already. See my entry above. But it still doesn’t work. I am not using the new version of the plugin on new websites.

    hmm…I am usin’ 1.0.3, Force Rewrite option doesnt work for me, so Ive just changed it manually….anyway here is the advice i followed

    Yeah, I am using a custom theme which already had the Yoast title code in place. I am hoping Yoast will see this thread and lend a hand.

    Titles do not work for me as well. Using Version 1.0.3.


    I’m wondering if there’s any way to turn off the titles function of this plugin? I’m using a child-theme I made that already has a title structure I’m happy with:

    [Code moderated as per the Forum Rules. Please use the pastebin]

    I can change the plugin coding if necessary, just not sure what file to look in…


    Forgot to mention what the plugin is doing to my titles now…

    it’s adding “- [mysitetitle]” to every page, so things are getting titled like this:
    “Contact – Workhorse Politics | Workhorse Politics

    Well, just fixed it by putting %%title%% in the page and post title fields in plugin settings since it was simply replacing
    <?php wp_title(''); ?>
    with whatever it was putting in that field by default.
