In my Genesis SEO Settings under Homepage Settings I’ve set a longer document title specific to the home page. But only the site title, as set in the theme settings, is showing as the home page’s title in the browser. Can anybody tell me what might be causing this?
I’m using the Outreach theme; here’s the site in question: http://acornfarmwaldorf.com/

Thanks for the reply. Yes, amazingly, the issue still remains. The home page is completely widgetized, which I think means that the meta title should be set in Genesis SEO Settings under Homepage Settings. I’ve done so, but still, no title appears for the home page, only the site name as you can see here: http://acornfarmwaldorf.com/
thanks very much,

On that page there’s a Site Title, which is filled in, and a Tagline, which is empty. I don’t see a field for Site Description.April 27, 2014 at 1:49 pm #102636
Tagline is the Site Description. If you fill that in, then the <title> on the home page will be populated correctly. You might need to remove or hide it from appearing in your header (which is why you might have deleted it from the settings in the first place), but that can be fixed afterwards – Susan can tell you how

I really appreciate your engagement and help! I added a tagline, it’s “Local Kindergarten,” to distinguish it from other page’s titles. But it still doesn’t show up as a meta title. In fact, looking at the page source, there’s no meta description either, although I’ve included one in the Genesis SEO settings. Something’s getting in the way of or hiding all of the homepage settings.
Should I look for something in particular in header.php or home.php?April 29, 2014 at 10:42 am #102941
Can anyone give me a snippet that might let me force write a meta title tag, at least as an interim measure? My client is antsy!
