[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] What would cause a theme to hijack the title? (1 post)

    A client is using a poorly coded free theme, and we are in the process of rebuilding from the ground up. But as a bandaid we wanted to do our due diligence and get them to a place where they can be indexed properly, so WP SEO is the first step in that. We noticed, however, that the theme is overriding WP SEO in such a way that it appends the site name (get_bloginfo('name');) to every title causing the WPSEO curated to title to come immediately after, and without a space. I dug through the theme's header.php and even removed all of the code within the title tag, but it seems to exist even still. Is there any other place I should look to create a quick fix for this?

    Thank you.
