    Hi @termoplus,

    For this issue, I’ve created an extension that’ll help you out. It’s named Title Fix.

    Cheers!

    why should it fix when it should work in the plugin if there is an option? I don’t like to install many plugins. I personally hate plugins.

    I really like your plugin, however, I hate the idea to install the plugin, then another manager and then other plugins to connect to the main one. Really hate this approach when developers do! I understand that in most cases people dont need many functionalities however too many steps which one day will break the website on the next update.

    Hi @termoplus,

    The issue lies with the theme, it is trying to do fancy trickery with the title, and therefore we can’t manipulate it. It’s explained on the extension’s information page, which I linked to earlier.

    Keeping track of odd conditions caused by third parties will cause too much overhead, both in code maintenance as in providing support. In this case, it also helped you find that there’s an issue with the theme, which is good.

    I believe you’ve had a bad experience with third-party software, and I want to promise you that I have no intentions of breaking or limiting any functionality of a site. I’m also promising not to brand the plugin throughout the dashboard. And as such, I’ve created a collective plugin, called the Extension Manager, as a first-party branded portal to support this plugin financially.

    WordPress.org set new guidelines for title tags in 2014. Theme authors here were forced to abide. That’s why the “fix” isn’t included in the main plugin: I can’t lay waste in the code of which 99% of the users won’t find useful. I also intend to make these title issues known to theme developers by simply not supporting them, as they really shouldn’t make these mistakes anymore.

    Regardless, I believe you’ll find many other features that come in handy with the Extension Manager, like the new Focus extension, which helps you write targetted content.

    In any case, you could also ask the theme author (which initially broke it) to update the theme to 2014 standards; then, the Title Fix will no longer be required.

    I hope this explains the lot and alleviates your worries. Cheers!

    Sorry I am not sold.

    I still believe it’s evil when developers try to create lots of plugins and extensions. One day they will conflict somehow and each developer cares about its own product.I understand you create Manager to earn money on exertions however it’s better to create one perfect that 1000 add-ons that will break a website one day. That’s why i prefer to use nake theme with limited plugins.

    The theme is perfect. It’s used by 500.000 users so please do not put this on the theme. I resolve the issue within your plugin without extensions. Obviously, you have two option which can change what shows first so the top one is not working when the bellow one worked.

    I dont understand why there are two similar options.

    Hi @termoplus,

    I didn’t try to sell you anything.

    Before concluding that I’m being evil, you should read up on what the extensions do, and what they cost you. In fact, the Title Fix extension is among the free ones.
    Most extensions are extremely advanced and stand on their own. Meanwhile, I’m not limiting anything which’s free; neither in TSF nor in any of the free TSFEM extensions.

    Extensions are marked premium when they make use of my tactile resources, which (has) cost me real money to obtain and maintain, rather than just months of my time. Instead of blocking functionality, which is against WordPress.org’s guidelines, they’re set up as SaaS.

    Also, in supporting Open Source you can pick between having software that’s non-professional or experimental, software that’s heavily backed by donations (e.g. React and WordPress), software that sells support as an add-on (e.g. Red Hat), SaaS, premium add-ons, or opt-out advertisements.

    Some plugin authors choose to utilize a combination of the latter four.
    I chose only to write SaaS, via open source extensions. I think this would make me be a saint.

    Back to support:
    My apologies, I misunderstood the premise of your opening question.

    Yes, there are two options. One for the homepage, and one for the rest of the pages.

    It’s done this way because the home page often annotates the name of the site first and then the slogan. Whereas other pages often annotate the page title before the name of the site.

    you didn’t understand me correctly. I didn’t call you evil. I just shared my opinion what I think about that kind of approach. what potentially can break the site it’s evil 🙂

    regarding the question, yes you are right, one for the homepage, however, it’s not working. this what I am trying to say. I am using Divi, the best theme for WP.

    thanks

    Hi @termoplus,

    No worries! I felt like my past 3 years of work were being ridiculed 🙁
    It’s all good, let’s work on that our relations stay well 🙂

    I just tested out Divi version 3.0.106 (latest). I couldn’t reproduce any title bugs, even with their SEO settings enabled.

    Could you tell me what’s not working in more detail, i.e. what (kind of) page are you experiencing this issue?

    Also, could you tell me which version of Divi you’re using? You can find the version number next to the theme’s name at “Appearance -> Themes -> Click on the Divi square”.

    Cheers!
