I have my posts page set as
index.php, and on there I have my main heading (as I do on all pages).
I'm having trouble displaying the page's heading however. The page is called 'Blog' in WordPress, and has been specified as the posts page.
If I output the page heading with
wp_title('');, I get the title of the page — 'Blog' — but with the site name after it (perhaps due to Yoast SEO plugin).
If I use
the_title() then it gives me the title of the most recent blog post, even though I'm calling the function outside of the loop.
So I've had to resort to simple hardcoding
<h1>Blog</h1> which is far from ideal.
Is there a way I can pull in the name of the page title dynamically but just the page title on it's own?
