[Theme : Catch box] All in one SEO plugin – Post title prob

    Hi,

    I’m using All in one SEO plugin like most people will do and it gives troubles with the catchbox theme I think.

    My All in one SEO plugin is set like this for my post title etc : %post_title% | %blog_title%
    When using the catchbox theme it shows up like this : blog_title %post_title% | %blog_title%

    e.g. :

    Normal : What a great post this is ! | My Blog
    Catchbox theme : My Blog What a great post this is ! | My Blog

    As you can see it automatically shows the blog title in front of every title, not very good for ranking in google etc.

    Can I adjust this somewhere ?

    Without being able to actually see your settings for All in one SEO, I would suggest you recheck them, I have looked at the header.php in catch-box and it is correct, containing only <title><?php wp_title();?></title> so the extra Blog Name bit is not being introduced by the theme, but has to be a plugin…

    very weird cause when I try another theme the title shows up without mistakes…

    OK, I did check the theme version thats currently on WordPress theme gallery, you should probably look in the header.php file of the version you have installed, and look for the line that stats with <title> and make sure it only contains wp_title(); nothing else.

    Nope doesn’t help, this is how it looks now… looks fine.

    <head>
    <meta charset=”<?php bloginfo( ‘charset’ ); ?>” />
    <meta name=”viewport” content=”width=device-width” />
    <title><?php wp_title();?></title>
    <link rel=”profile” href=”http://gmpg.org/xfn/11″ />
    <link rel=”stylesheet” type=”text/css” media=”all” href=”<?php echo get_stylesheet_uri(); ?>” />
    <link rel=”pingback” href=”<?php bloginfo( ‘pingback_url’ ); ?>” />
    <?php
    /* Always have wp_head() just before the closing </head>
    * tag of your theme, or you will break many plugins, which
    * generally use this hook to add elements to <head> such
    * as styles, scripts, and meta tags.
    */
    wp_head();
    ?>
    </head>

    Weird thing is that it doesn’t happen with categories, only with pages and single posts.

    Check in page.php and single.php if you have a different header file in there. The theme may have two different header includes, and again look for the <title> tag. I don’t know the All in one SEO pack plugin well, I have grown up on Joost de Valk’s WordPress SEO, but I do know some of the SEO plugins allow different templates for say pages and archives.

    Hi Driezzie,

    Can you add in the Site URI here so that I can see what’s going on with your site?

    The wp_title is filter through catchbox_filter_wp_title() function which you will find in function.php file.

    I just test it in my site and it is working fine with All in One SEO Plugin.

    Hi,

    Thought I would highjack this thread seeing as it’s exactly my problem. Same thing happening to me, I have All In One SEO installed and have been using it for years. On the posts that I have entered info in the plugin, the post title comes up fine. In those that I haven’t, it comes up as

    Blog Title Post Title.

    I recently changed the theme, I love the layout and look, but my visitors have already dropped substantially and I am sure that this isn’t great for SEO.

    When I disable the plugin it turns into Blog Title >> Post Title. I have around 300 posts and I really don’t want to be losing the benefit I already have. Is there some solution so that i can keep All in one SEO and the theme running together? I have been looking through the php files but honestly am struggling in that area.

    My site:

    http://laurensfitness.com/

    Here is an example of a post without the All in one info plugged in.

    Appreciate the help!!

    It is also happening on tags.

    I really appreciate any help, I would like to continue using the theme if i can find a solution.

    Loza57,

    Can click on “All in One SEO” under Settings in your WordPress Dashboard. Then uncheck “Rewrite Titles”. This will fix your issue.

    Thank you,

    Now it comes up as

    Laurens Fitness >> Post Title

    My best search engine results were

    Post Title | Laurens Fitness

    Is there much difference SEO wise, as I don’t necessarily like change if it is affecting my rankings… is there any way to have it back this way?

    Thank you for the reply, very quick and helpful!

    Hi Lauren,

    Actually that doesn’t make any different. In our next version update, I will make it to | as it is being commonly used. So, wait for the new version update. But I assure that it doesn’t make any significant difference in SEO.

    Great thank you for your help, much appreciated.
