The titles on my wordpress site are all messed up. I’ve tried all night to figure out what is wrong and can’t. I want the title to look like so:
On a page: “Website Name” – “Page Name”
On homepage: “Website Name”
On a single blog post: “Website Name” – “Post Title”
On blog loop page: “Website Name” – Blog
Instead what I get is:
On a page: “Website Name” – “Page Name”"Website Name”
On homepage: “Website Name” – “Website Name” “Webiste Description”
On a single blog post: “Website Name” – “Post Title”"Website Name”
On blog loop page: “Website Name” – “Website Description”
I tried editing the code in the header.php but couldn’t fix it. I tried using SEO Ultimate to replace titles but it had no effect at all, even disabling it didn’t change anything.
I essentially “ported” my theme from the HTML website I made last spring into wordpress using the tutorial on this (css tricks) site. So, in other words, my theme is build on top of the Stakers theme.
I suspect that something in the functions.php of the Stakers theme is preventing SEO Ultimate (I also tried the All In One SEO Pack plugin, same deal) from modifying the titles of pages. I don’t understand why, if someone can let me know that would be great.
More importantly now though, is there a way to customize the $seperator? I’d like it to be ‘-’ or ‘—’ rather than the default ‘|’ but I have no idea where or how to modify this.
