    I need a plugin that will rewrite my titles, single posts will have just their title and remove blog name and archive etc etc

    re-write titles is supposed to do that, but the link and page to whoever wrote it's site is down permanently.

    is there another plugin? or a place I can find it?

    The file is not in .php
    do I have to re name it myself?

    and there is gibberish chracters at the beginning and end.

    is this supposed to be like that? It is not working for me.

  4. You need to uncompress it with WinZip, WinRar or some other such program...

    Yes obviously I unzip it

    it comes to: rewrite-titles[1]

    so i added .php to the end and tried to run it

    there are garbage characters at the top and at the bottom of the file if i view it in wordpad

    i activate it in wordpress and it doenst work, and all these garabage chracters show up

    i tried remloving everything in the file other than what lies within the php tags

    it says its activated, but the titles look the same
    nothing changes

    I have no problem unzipping it. Winzip may not be very friendly with tarred/gzipped files. Try: http://rarlab.com

    I am still having garbage blank characters appear in the file
    If i strip everything and activate the plugin it simply doesnt do anything.
    can anyone email my their exact file?

    Finally managed to get the proper file out of the weird archive, I enabled the plugin but for some reason nothing is changing.

    Try deleting the file and reuploading.

    apparently the problem I'm having is a conflict with the theme im using

    im using 'mallow'

    when I disable it, the titles re write
    when Its on, the titles dont change
    I dont know what to do

    u may ask the theme author about this.

    Most likely the theme author is using a non-standard way of generating the titles. But as GenericSuperhero said, ask the theme author.

    Where can I find this plugin? The main site doesn't seem to work anymore.

    I used http://elasticdog.com/2004/09/optimal-title/ and really had good luck with it. I tweaked it some even with that so it shows my post name, category first (If it isnt the home page) then just the site name on the main page.

    By putting
    <title><?php optimal_title(); ?><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></title> in the header

    Have you found that this plugin does actually make a difference in search engine results?
