Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Yoast – Post Types -> Title Template not working

  • After searching the web and finding no solution for my problem I think this thread is the right place to ask.
    For hours I’m trying to change my Post Types -> Title Templates but it is just not working:

    I can check or uncheck the force rewrite, but no effect. I tried different <title> in the header but still no effect:
    <title><?php wp_title( ‘|’, true, ‘right’ ); ?></title>
    <title><?php wp_title(”); ?></title>

    I´m using the udesign theme and it comes with this default <title>
    <title><?php wp_title(‘«’, true, ‘right’); ?> <?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?></title>

    This is my website:

    Hopefully someone can help!
    Thanks in advance & greetings from Cologne!

  • Have a look here for how the title tag should be in your template.

    Also: have you tried with all other plugins disabled and one of the WP themes (twentytwelve for instance) ? Does it still not work ?
    If works on a vanilla WP, then the problem is with either your theme or one of the other plugins.
    So activate one at the time and see when it starts going wrong, that’s your culprit.

    Hi jrf,

    thanks for your answer!
    I tried sooo much, but nothing worked. Next I´ll check if a plugin is causing the problem.

    My solution for now is:
    1.) uncheck force rewrites
    2.) replace the <title> with:
    <title><?php wp_title(‘true’,’right’); ?> | <?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?></title>

    Even the codes in the did not work here :-/

    Is the code:
    <title><?php wp_title(‘true’,’right’); ?> | <?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?></title>
    all right? Are there any negative side effects to the yoast plugin?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hmm… you obviously did NOT read the article I linked to…

    Go read it.

    Of course. That´s the first thing I did when having the problem.
    Changing to
    <title><?php wp_title(”); ?></title>
    does not solve it. So I think it has something to do with other plugins or the udesign theme.

    For now I´ll have to go with:
    <title><?php wp_title(‘true’,’right’); ?> | <?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?></title>

    Thanks anyway!

    I had the same problem as manulito and after trying every possible solution I could think of and googling for a couple of hours, I ended up settling for the same fix. Thanks for posting that.

    This functionality in the plugin seems broken. It’s so strange that a huge popular plugin like Yoast SEO runs into problems with such a seemingly simple task. Anyway, back to work!

    Had a similar problem on the homepage by making sure the homepage was set to be the front-page.

    I’m having similar problems. I’m using “<title><?php wp_title(”); ?></title>” and have unchecked force rewrite, but I’m still getting duplicate site name entries on my posts.

    I think by process of deduction I’ll eventually find a combination that works, but I’m pretty certain the plugin isn’t working as it should do under the new update. It’s frustrating that you have to wait for Google to ping before you know whether something’s worked – you really can’t trust the Google preview the plugin shows you.
