  • You have to edit the header.php file and add this line:

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

    instead of the title line you have from your template…

    hello i having the same problem but with the keywords and the description meta tags. the plugin is not changing these tags to the one the i input when creating the page. instead its pulling the one from the default theme. (Boldy Theme). is there any way that i can fix this. I dont know too much about php but i took a look at the header.php file and thats what those tags are colling is there any way that i can make it called the wordpress SEO meta keywords and description that i change when i create a page or a post. Thank you in advance for reading this email.

    Bellow is the code that i have in the header.php file

    <title><?php wp_title(‘«’, true, ‘right’); ?> <?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?></title>
    <meta name=”keywords” content=”<?php echo get_option(‘boldy_keywords’); ?>” />
    <meta name=”description” content=”<?php echo get_option(‘boldy_description’); ?>” />

    it is likely that you need to remove this build-in code from your header:

    <meta name="keywords" content="<?php echo get_option('boldy_keywords'); ?>" />
    <meta name="description" content="<?php echo get_option('boldy_description'); ?>" />

    make a backup copy before editing; and see if that change gets the plugin seo meta to show.

    Thank you for responding. However, i removed the code from my headed but, but it did not work. If i delete the code it doesn’t call anything so my guess is thats why it didnt display anything. Do you happen to know if i chage the boldy_desprition part to called the action of the plugin?

    how did you check this?

    did you look int the html code of your site in the browser?

    any changes in the search engine results will take a long while.

    Hi,

    I am also having the same issues with WordPress SEO duplicating website’s name in search description. I have added <title><?php wp_title(”); ?></title> in the appropriate place and still am finding this duplicate issue.

    would love to know how to fix this issue

    thanks.

    guvenp: you’ve got two title tags in your theme now.

    Since installing the latest version 0.3.2, I am seeing stray characters in my title (home page only). http://rsanwes.com

    I can’t find where my theme the characters are coming from.

    Have uninstalled and reinstalled but have seen no change.

    Dude, you’ve got all sorts of crap within your title tags on rsanews.com:

    <style>
    			.fpb_media
    			{
    				padding: 5px;
    				margin: 5;
    			}
    			.fpb_plain
    			{
    				background: #F3F3F2; padding:5px; margin:3px; border:1px solid #E3E1DB;
    			}
    			</style>
    
    		<div class="fpb_media">
    				</div>

    That’s not my plugin doing that but another one…

    I’ve determined that the plugin WP Front Page Burner is the source of the rouge code popping up in the title area. The plugin had been working properly until now. But after some testing, it appears to no longer work. Thank you for checking.

    Ok glad to hear it’s fixed 🙂

    Hi same issue here, title of pages (excluding homepage) have duplicates of the website name’
