    I’m using SEO by Yoast for my website. However, I noticed that there is no way to customize the frontpage SEO settings. In Angular, I have set the frontpage to be “portfolio”, and I have already set all the SEO settings for that page. It works out fine when you click on the actual “portfolio” page, but if you just go to the home/frontpage, the settings are no longer there. The title of the page is reverted to what I have set in “general settings”.

    How could I work around this?



    in header.php replace:

    <title><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> | <?php is_home() ? bloginfo('description') : wp_title(''); ?></title>


    <title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title>


    Hey Dude, tried that, but it doesn’t work. Same thing. Any other ideas?


    your missing ´´…. should look like:

    <title><?php wp_title(”); ?></title>


    Tried that – didn’t work neither.


    I have the SEO title for my portfolio page set to:

    Jeff Huang — Art Director & Illustrator | Illustration & Design

    but it’s showing up as this on the homepage

    Jeff Huang — Art Director & Illustrator | Illustration –


    I actually just changed the title in my general settings to prove that it is indeed not working.


    You could see it there.

    Again, in angular, I have my frontpage set to my “portfolio” page, and in the portfolio page, I have the SEO set to:

    Jeff Huang — Art Director & Illustrator | Illustration & Design

    I must fix this since this is the homepage…


    It’s an issue with the seo plugin then because it hooks into the wp_title function. You can try to deactivate the seo homepage title output and use the standard code instead.

    @hectortarifa – thanks for spotting this. I corrected the code.


    Fixed it –

    Turns out I had to go into General Settings -> Reading, and set the frontpage manually to portfolio instead of “latest post”. Now it works.
