I use yoast for my seo, indexing, title, sitemap etc.

But I have one issue, for my product pages I want to use costum taxonomy data and yoast doesnt support that. Now I got the code to echo the exact title I want in the product pages but how do I let it overwrite the title set by yoast, or how do I replace the title set by yoast for this specific post type?

The WPSEO plugin by Yoast has a filter for the title: 'wpseo_title'. You'll need to add something like this:

add_filter('wpseo_title', 'filter_product_wpseo_title');
function filter_product_wpseo_title($title) {
    if(  is_singular( 'product') ) {
        $title = //your code
    return $title;

More info at the WordPress SEO API Docs page.

  • this has saved me after days of looking. Thanks! of there a place where i can find out all of these filter fields? how did you find out wpseo_title was the field name? Jul 30, 2015 at 15:22
