I am a newbie in WordPress and our website page titles are repeating. That is the first problem. The second problem appears to be that there is a space missing between the repetition.

I have attached a diagram to demonstrate this issue. In the attached diagram note that at the top left of Chrome our blog's name is "Snowball Blog". Instead of a space after that, there is no space, and then We have the subtitle of the blog (in this case Hosting). After the word hosting this then appears ">> Snowball Blog".

This happens on all pages, for example, "Snowball BlogMeet the Team >> Snowball Blog". I am not that familiar with coding so I would probably need simple instructions! :-)

Here is a link to the hosting page of our Blog: Hosting page on our blog

Please, read the About page to know how this site works. This may be helpful to understand what's going on with your theme: codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy – brasofilo Feb 26 '13 at 11:25

look into header.php of your theme;

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

when you use a seo plugin, you can control the meta title with the plugin; change that line to:

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