Title not responding to Yoast Wordpress SEO


Question

Posted · Report post

Ever since, I believe, 2.2.4 came out I haven't been able to get the title of my pages to respond to the title tags I input to Yoast Wordpress SEO.

For example, I have the settings in Yoast for posts as:

[i]%%title%% - %%sitename%%[/i]

Therefore, the title of this page (http://www.musicianwages.com/start-your-teaching-business-in-30-days/) should be:

[b]Start Your Teaching Business in 30 Days - MusicianWages.com[/b]

But instead the title of that post reads:

[b]MusicianWages.com | Start Your Teaching Business in 30 Days[/b]

What am I doing wrong? How can I fix this?

Hi,

I have just tried Wordpress SEO by Yoast on my testing site and I changed the Pages title to this:

[CODE]
%%title%% ------------ %%sitename%%
[/CODE]

The changes worked without any problem, I then changed them again to something completely different and again, worked without any issue. Therefore, I recommend you disable all active plugins except for Wordpress SEO by Yoast and official PageLines plugins and see if this resolves your issue.

If not, then I would contact Yoast and see what he suggests.

I've tried everything. Deactivating all plugins, trying different SEO plugins - it is NOT a plugin issue. This is a Pagelines issue and it started at v2.2. I've been asking this question for months and months and getting blown off. I bought the expensive version of Pagelines for the SUPPORT.

Can someone please help?

Can I do something in my child theme to change the way the <title> is handled?

If you have a spare admin login i'll take a look, but the framework uses the same filter as suggested by the wordpress theme review standards.

PM me the login if you want me to look.

Hello, I am facing a similar problem - did this one get resolved? I am trying to change my page titles, but Yoast SEO + Pagelines won't let me do it.  I have tried checking and unchecking "Force rewrite titles" in Yoast.

Disable all non-PageLines plugins with the exception of Wordpress SEO by Yoast and see if this resolves your issue.

I´m facing the same issue, i have tried ticking the box off as suggested and deactivated alle plugins, none of it works. It simply wont save it. 
And i JUST updated SEO YOAST plugin. 

 

Really frustrating as it is a hell of an important plugin.
