    Well I think its yoast that's causing the problems

    When I am creating a post it is showing:

    post title | site title

    But its actually showing:

    post title | site title site title

    Its repeating the site title twice??

    Its worse on the home page!

    Its showing: site title | side description site title | side description

    Its repeating the whole thing twice.

    Does anyone know how to stop this??

    hope you can help thanks

    There is an option in this plugin, while u move ur mouse over it, and it is called "title or..." click on that one, and u need to tick "force rewrite title...." then the title for each page will show properly! cheers
