[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Wrong Post Separator (4 posts)

    I'm using a wp template which uses this function for head tag:
    <?php wp_head(); ?>
    and when I publish a post the separator is 'postname' | 'blogtitle'
    but when I turn on SEO Yoast then the separator changes to - and I can't find a way tho change it back to |

    Any ideas how I can fix it?

    Thank you

    I would love to know the same thing! I want the pipe instead of the dash symbol. Or like Yoast has a special character...very tricky!

    I have the same issue, in my header.php the separator is defined as wp_title( '&rang;', true, 'right' ); ... i.e, the right-angle character. However, WordPress SEO outputs all my titles with a plain ol' dash.

    Nevermind, I figured it out. In my case I had to disable the checkbox, "Force rewrite titles", which had been enabled by default. After that, it worked as expected.
