[SOLVED] static page <title> with WP setting "Front page displays: Your latest posts"
Dear supporters,

on my website http://gehrcke.de, I've set Wordpress Dashboard->Settings->Reading to "Front page displays: Your latest posts".

The problem now is that the HTML <title> tag of this front page always carries the title of the most recent blog post. Instead, I would like to define my own static title for this front page and, if possible, meta tags. How do I accomplish this?

I currently use Atahualpa 3.6.7.

Thanks a lot in advance, I've tried to solve this issue for a long time now and the same question in the WordPress forum did not yield a solution.

That's where an SEO plugin would come in handy.

Thanks for your answer.

First, I do not see any reason, why this should not work without SEO plugin. My feeling is, that people intuitively want to have the frontpage showing the blog posts while having a static title like "Peter's blog".

So, primarily I am looking for a way to achieve this with only WordPress/Atahualpa and I'm still happy to get suggestions at this point.

Then, of course, you are right. I also thought, that SEO plugins should be able to to this. I tried "TGFI.net SEO" and "SEO Title Tag". Both do not have an option to set the tags for the "front page". Do you know which SEO plugin can do what I want?

make sure you have applied ALL the 3.6.7 BUGFIX's (New Versions & Updates forum)

it works the way you expect for me with no SEO

you are totally right, thank you. The TGFI SEO plugin had screwed this up. Without any SEO plugin, Atahualpa is showing the title as defined in WP Settings -> General -> Site title on the blog post front page; great.

With the plugin "All in one SEO", I was able to additionally set the keywords and description meta tags for the front page. I deactivated any title-blabla of all in one SEO, because Atahualpa already does a good job at this point.

I should have done this standard procedure myself... deactivating relevant plugins and see how it works out. Sorry that I've taken your time :)
