On my site at http://www.jamesserra.com, I use “James Serra’s Blog” as my site title. But in the browser tab (Chrome or Edge), it shows as “James Serra\’s Blog”. Any ideas on how to remove the “\”? Thanks!March 20, 2021 at 21:19 UTC - Views: 28 #67725
I suspect WordPress is having a problem with the apostrophe…
@weaver, any idea why the apostrophe of the site title ends up preceded by a slash in the browser TAB label adn if we can do something about it ?March 20, 2021 at 21:21 UTC - Views: 27 #67726
Searching google, it confirms my fear.
Someone mentioned replacing the apostrophe by its HTML character & #8217;
so try making the title
James Serra& #8217;s BlogMarch 20, 2021 at 21:26 UTC - Views: 25 #67727
Ok, here is what is weird: If I go to General Settings and change the Site Title, it does NOT affect the browser TAB label. So any ideas on where the info used in the browser TAB label is pulled from?March 20, 2021 at 21:29 UTC - Views: 22 #67728
You may have a cache issue, clear all caches.
And try the HTML I mentioned aboveMarch 20, 2021 at 21:37 UTC - Views: 20 #67729
No luck after clearing the cache. It seems where the TAB label is created from when on my sites home page is a mystery. Other pages will show the TAB label correctly, for example “Microsoft Ignite Announcements 2021 | James Serra’s Blog”.March 20, 2021 at 23:32 UTC - Views: 16 #67730
When you change the Site title to something else, are all the pages showing the new title except the home page. or none of them show the new title ?March 20, 2021 at 23:34 UTC - Views: 14 #67731
Are you using Yoast ?
If not test deactivating ALL non weaver plugin and see if that makes a differenceMarch 21, 2021 at 01:40 UTC - Views: 10 #67732
That was the hint I needed! Turns out the plug-in AIOSEO – The World’s Best WordPress SEO Plugin and Toolkit has an option to set the site title for the home page, which had the “\” in it. All fixed now! Thanks!
