  • I just launched my web site at
    The title of the web site is duplicated at the top of the browser on several of the site’s pages. I’m sure how to eliminate this.

  • Your site seems to be running fine ? Have you updated your browsers. Also clear the browser cache and cookies.

    look into header.php and see what code is used for

    <title> ???? <?title>

    this possibly should only be:

    <title><?php wp_title(); ?><?title>

    as you are doing the seo with a plugin <!-- This site is optimized with the Yoast WordPress SEO plugin v1.3.4.4 - -->

    Yes, an astute observation, when I activated the Yoast SEO plugin this problem started, it seems.
    Now, here’s the code from header.php, and as I’m not a code person, it seems considerably more complicated that yours above:

                 * Print the <title> tag based on what is being viewed.
                global $page, $paged;
                wp_title('|', true, 'right');
                // Add the blog name.
                // Add the blog description for the home/front page.
                $site_description = get_bloginfo('description', 'display');
                if ($site_description && ( is_home() || is_front_page() ))
                    echo " | $site_description";
                // Add a page number if necessary:
                if ($paged >= 2 || $page >= 2)
                    echo ' | ' . sprintf('Page %s', max($paged, $page));

    Do I replace with your simpler version?
