Changing Post Title tags

    #8065

    New member here — I looked everywhere and couldn’t find the answer to this.

    I want to take out the website title from my post titles. I THOUGHT the fix was under the Miscellaneous Display Options under this:

    Custom content pages site title : where I put in #post-title.

    However, the site name is still showing up after the post-title in the title tag.

    Any ideas?

    Sorry if this is a repeat.

    I don’t see any posts where this is an issue. Did you get this resolved? If not, please point us to a post where this is an issue.

    I only have a few posts, but here is one:

    http://gkwebmarketing.com/site-audit-why-do-you-need-one/

    If you go to the page source, you’ll see the GK Web Marketing in the title tag behind the post name.

    I only want the post name in the title tag.

    I see this at the beginning of your <head>:

    <head profile="http://gmpg.org/xfn/11">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=Edge" />
    <title>Site Audit - Why Do You Need One? - GK Web Marketing</title>

    What am I missing?

    Right — this line:

    <title>Site Audit – Why Do You Need One? – GK Web Marketing</title>

    I want the GK Web Marketing taken off. I don’t want it added to each and every post title.

    At first, I thought this might have been an issue with the Yoast SEO plug in, but when I looked it up, it said:

    “The SEO Title defaults to what is generated based on this sites title template for this posttype.”

    Which, as I mentioned before, I thought was under the Miscellaneous Display Options under this:

    Custom content pages site title : where I put in #post-title.

    It defaults to #post-title, #site-name.

    Here is what it says under the Misc. Display Options

    Site title options

    Use these tags to customise your own site title structure: #site-name, #site-desc, #post-title

    Custom front page site title Defaults to #site-name » #site-desc. The #post-title tag cannot be used here.

    Custom content pages site title Defaults to #post-title » #site-name.

    Hope I’m making sense here.

    That is definitely the Yoast SEO plugin. Look around the plugin’s settings and you’ll find an option for defining the site title template.

    To quickly verify that it is the Yoast SEO plugin that’s modifying the title, simply deactivate the plugin.

    Right you were, Syahir!

    Thanks so much — I got it fixed!

    Marking thread as resolved. You can do this yourself as well.
