Titles not rewriting (2 posts)

    Some titles are not being rewritten on my blog. Seems to work OK for posts & pages, but any pages that are subpages do not get rewritten.


    The custom post type gets properly re-written titles: http://georgecoghill.com/blog/sketchbook/cartoon-dog-construction-helmet/

    While this same CPT does not:

    This top-level page works:

    this does not:

    None of the pages in the Info menu get the titles rewritten.

    I have the "force rewrite titles" checkbox checked, using a child theme based off of twentyten but no modification to the title area.

    Kinda bummed about this as I migrated from All in One SEO and now all that is gone.

    Well I figured out what is going on here — I migrated from All in One SEO and some of my posts & pages had SEO titles, some did not.

    Those with SEO titles do not get the "sitename" added to the end of the SEO title (per my title template settings", only those pages without anything in the SEO Title field properly use the title template.

    Yoast SEO needs to use the title template for all titles, even when using the SEO title field. The titles displayed on the page (in the default WP title box) should remain as-is so we can write separate page titles and post titles.
