  • I am new to WordPress and use PressWork. I am looking for some advice integrating Yoast WordPress SEO specifically the Title Settings section which states:

    “that for WordPress SEO to be able to modify your page titles, the title section of your header.php file should look like this:

    <?php wp_title(”); ?>”

    Please can someone point me in the right direction and provide some guidance with this. If there is further information required please let me know.

    P.S. If I enable force rewrite instead it breaks some functionality within my site.

    Thank you in advance.

  • In wordpress dashboard click Appearance, then Editor, then click Header from the right hand side.

    That will open the code for the header.php file.

    Search for <title>, then edit the the code between <title></title> so it looks like this:

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

    Please back everything up before you start editing your theme code.

    My code currently looks like:

    <title><?php wp_title('|',true,'right'); ?><?php bloginfo('name'); if(is_front_page()) { echo ' | '; bloginfo('description'); } if ( $paged > 1 ) { echo (' | Page '); echo $paged; } ?></title>

    Should I change it to look like

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

    Thank you for the support

    My titles became messed up after activating this plugin. Some pages had the title twice and others had the title and description all on the title bar. I had to disable it for now, wish there were a way to turn that off because I like the rest of your plugin.

    I was disappointed that there is not filled with a default option, as in similar plug-ins.

    Could someone to share complete version of Title Settings, suitable for most odinary blogs?
