[resolved] [Plugin: Yoast WordPress SEO] Site Name not displaying on posts (2 posts)

    I'm running a WordPress Network with two sites running separate themes:

    On the home pages, WordPress SEO successfully displays the following titles:
    %%sitedesc%% | %%sitename%%

    But on the posts, WordPress SEO only displays the post title, even though I indicate the following:
    %%title%% | %%sitename%%

    Just to be clear, the following does not display, " | %%sitename%%"

    I have the correct code in my header files:
    <title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title>

    I've also checked the function.php files and they do not change wp_title at all.

    Even more confusing to me, the site names do not appear even when I hard-code the names into the Title Template:
    %%title%% | The Family Jams

    And I don't see any change if when I check the "Force rewrite titles" box.

    Any suggestions?

    Solved. Now I'm embarrassed...

    Under the post-entry settings, I entered a post-specific title. This overrode the variables I setup in the WordPress SEO settings.

    Once I erased the post-specific title, the WordPress SEO settings kicked in, and post name and site name properly appeared in the page title.
