I came across a small issue with the site title appearing twice on my SEO code.
I have since fixed the issue using my All in One Pro SEO plugin however I would like to find out why the issue occurred. The SEO plugin suggested the issue may be theme related.
Does the GeneratePress theme or any of its add-ons have any bearing on the site title?
In my “post” content (not “page” content, which was fine) the meta looked something like this.
Post titleSite Title | Site Title
There was no gap between the Post Title and the Site Title either as shown above.
The issue is not so much the lack of space between the Post title and Site Title but as previously stated in the question above. Just thought it may be of some interest to you.January 7, 2015 at 6:43 pm #62696TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Neither GP or any of the add-ons do anything to the
<title>tag as I believe all of this should be handled by specialized plugins.
However, I totally suggest WordPress SEO over All in One SEO – it’s a much cleaner developed plugin.January 7, 2015 at 7:34 pm #62698Garth Dryland
Hummmmm okay. I assume you’ve checked it out recently. I will keep that in mind if I run into issues with it.
I looked at that SEO plugin by Yoast and a few others. I ended up running with All in One as it appears to offer more for less. It seems to be doing what it should so far.January 7, 2015 at 9:24 pm #62739TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
The only reason I say it’s AIO SEO is I’ve had that same issue on another theme using that plugin.
In version 1.2.5, GP will be relying on WordPress 100% on the output of the title tag, so it will be up to SEO plugins to use this new method: https://make.wordpress.org/core/2014/10/29/title-tags-in-4-1/

I installed All in One SEO and title rewrite for posts did not work
ok with twentyfifteen
a clash with your theme
not looked into it any further
above you recommend WordPress SEO
searched for that in WP repository and not sure which one you mean too many plugins with a similar name
could you give me a link to “WordPress SEO”

That’s odd – GP uses the most up to date way to display the title tag (https://make.wordpress.org/core/2014/10/29/title-tags-in-4-1/), so they should probably update their plugin.
This is the most used one: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/March 5, 2015 at 10:15 am #83027ian
Have heard that is very heavy on resoucres
I will give it a tryMarch 5, 2015 at 11:01 pm #83203TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperMarch 6, 2015 at 12:39 am #83223Garth Dryland
I would be keen to know if its hungry.
I have done a fair bit of research and cross referencing with what works well with what and WordPress SEO is a plugin I would use over All in One SEO if I needed to head in a very specific direction having plugins that developers have pretty much designed to work best with other very popular plugins like W3TC.March 6, 2015 at 10:25 am #83445TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
I just installed All in One SEO on my development site with GP and it seems to be working fine as it should. Can anyone confirm an issue with this plugin and GP?March 6, 2015 at 2:28 pm #83538Garth Dryland
I am not aware of any issues with AIOSEO and GP.
I did have one issue with AIOSEO some time ago but it was a setting related problem. The developers probably should make changes so that the setting deactivates if the other one is activated.
I cant recall the exact settings off hand. The issue was creating title double ups.
I believe AIOSEO is a great alternative to WP SEO by Yoast. Licence wise it blows Yoast out of the water if you intend on using an SEO plugin with numerous sites.June 7, 2015 at 10:24 am #113010Gustavo
I have problems with WordPress SEO by Yoast, I can not set it well because they are just a few options. ¿?…

I thought that maybe this is a compatibility issue with GP. I’m using WordPress Seo by Yoas with another theme and I not happen …June 7, 2015 at 10:59 am #113014TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
What exactly is happening? Hard for me to tell by the screenshots.
GP uses the built in WordPress title-tag (https://codex.wordpress.org/Title_Tag).
This means the theme has no say over the title tag of your website, it’s 100% controlled by WordPress or in your case WordPress SEO by Yoast.
