In my pages title I got for example "home-my title' and 'Books Archieves- my title', I want to drop those prefixes so I have only on page (home) 'My title' and on archive(category) 'Books- my title'. that's what I got inside the head: <head> <?php wp_head(); ?> </head>

You need to Edit your theme's Header.php tag. You will see necessary codes there. You can modify to fit your needs. However, If you need more specific help, please paste your themes header.php here.

  • Probably title is being called within wp_head() You should check function files for the exact code Commented Sep 11, 2014 at 11:22
