sitname missing in title & meta tag

  • Hi,
    since I use Clean Retina theme I’ve noticed that my webadres missing in the title tag. According to SEO Yoast plugin, it should be like this:
    Vision SPEED wading jacket | rbflyfishing.com

    But on my side is missing sitname and it looks that way:
    Vision SPEED wading jacket |

    I’ve checked the SEO settings and they are the same as before. I wonder could it be that something from the Clean Retina theme affects and makes the problem?
    Has anyone encountered the same problem or have any suggestions how I can solve it.
    Thanks!!

    Similar problem here. I just can’t locate the title tag that looks something like this..
    <title><?php bloginfo('name'); ?><?php wp_title(); ?></title>

    Isn’t that supposed to be in the header.php?

    This might be the cause of the WP SEO not being able to work properly.

    Just adding a custom meta title to homepage instead of displaying WordPress title will do it for me.

    hey,
    thanks for the help. can you describe where exactly have you written code?
    Is it in the header.php or header-extensions.php?
    Regards

    I found the problem.
    My website’s logo is jpg. image instead title written with words. When I write the title in the “Settings – title for the website”, then shows the web page name correctly. Now I hope I can be with the new CSS rule to hide title.
    Anyone who might have any suggestions how I can write my own css? 🙂

    Use CSS text indent
    http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_text_text-indent.asp

    That’s a common technique adopted by many industry giants like Facebook.

    hello again 🙂
    I have solved the problem so I moved the title with CSS rule

    # site-title {
    position: absolute;
    left: 10000px;
    }

    I do not know if there are good ways and will work on any browser, but right now firefox is OK.
    Thanks for help

    I figured it out. You have to add the line you mentioned above to the file loop-meta.php

    Here is where i added it in the file:

    <?php if ( is_category() ) : ?>      
    
    <div id="loop-meta">
      <h1 class="loop-meta-title"><?php printf( __( 'Category Archives: %s', 'retina' ), '<span>' . ucwords( strtolower ( single_cat_title( '', false ) ) ) . '</span>' ); ?></h1>
      <div class="loop-meta-description"><?php echo category_description(); ?></div>
    </div> <!-- end #loop-meta -->
    
    <?php elseif ( is_tag() ) : ?>
    
    <title><?php bloginfo('name'); ?><?php wp_title(); ?></title>
    
    <div id="loop-meta">
      <h1 class="loop-meta-title"><?php printf( __( 'Tag Archives: %s', 'retina' ), '<span>' . ucwords( strtolower ( single_tag_title( '', false ) ) ) . '</span>' ); ?></h1>
      <div class="loop-meta-description"><?php echo tag_description(); ?></div>
    </div> <!-- end #loop-meta -->

    Adding the code to the above file will include the title and tagline in the meta tags unless you leave them blank under settings.

    Do be aware that any changes you make to theme files will be lost when the theme is updated. It’s generally advisable to make such changes in a Child Theme

    Thanks for the info. WPyogi :} there are endless things for me to learn!!
