'Title-tag' is a theme feature introduced in Version 4.1, and I want to use it as the default title of my theme. This feature should be added on the
init action. It is recommended here. The use of this feature works perfect for me. BUT:
Moreover, I have a custom titles function which can be enabled/disabled using the Option-Tree framework. This framework is loaded directly in
functions.php. Then, I have the rest of the functions added on the
after_setup_theme with priority 2:
add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'theme_functions', 2);
And this is the filter added for my custom titles:
add_filter( 'wp_title', 'custom_titles', 10, 2 );
When I disable my
custom_titles() function, the new feature
title-tag works perfect, but when I enable the custom ones, it returns the title twice. Exactly that:
<title>Front page meta title example</title> Front page meta title example<title></title>
The first one is correct, and it's using the
wp_title() function inserted in the
header.php between the
title tags, but the second one it's included at the first line of the
In fact, my
custom_titles() function worked perfect without the use of the new feature
title-tag. So it seems the conflict appears when I try to use both.
Do you think it'd be a good solution to put both features in
after_theme_setup priority 1 in a simple conditional statement, or is there a better way for doing that? It seems the solution should be easier.
UPDATE: This is crazy. If I remove the
title tags of the header to use the new feature, the theme-check returns:
REQUIRED: The theme needs to have tags, ideally in the header.php file.
If I remove the new feature to use my custom function, the theme-check returns:
RECOMMENDED: No reference to add_theme_support( "title-tag" ) was found in the theme. It is recommended that the theme implement this functionality for WordPress 4.1 and above.
To be honest: LOL. Adding
title tags in
header.php as they «RECOMMEND» & «REQUIRE», respectively, it returns always the title twice!
