Right now the title of a post page on my blog reads like this... Blog Name >> Blog Archive >> Post Title

I don't see the need for "Blog Archive" to be in there and would like to remove it. I've looked in single.php and style.css and I'm not seeing any reference to "Blog Archive" in there that I can remove.

Any suggestions?

Much appreciated.


  • Did you look in the "Archive" template file? That's most likely where it is. If it's not we're going to need more information about your theme to answer your question Commented Feb 16, 2011 at 18:18
  • Hi Eileen. I looked in both archive.php and archives.php and I couldn't find it in either. I'm using the simpleX theme by wpshoppe.com Commented Feb 16, 2011 at 18:27
  • Are you sure your theme is causing this? I took a quick look at the theme and installed it and it's not happening locally on mine. Do you have a breadcrumb plugin installed? Commented Feb 16, 2011 at 18:57
  • No breadcrumb plugin Eileen. Only Plugin I have installed and activated is Disqus. Commented Feb 16, 2011 at 19:27

I just realized that you're talking about the browser "title" at the top; that wasn't clear from your original post

Go into your header.php and at the top look for this line

<title><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> <?php if ( is_single() ) { ?> &raquo; Blog Archive <?php } ?> <?php wp_title(); ?> - <?php bloginfo('description'); ?> </title>

and remove

<?php if ( is_single() ) { ?> &raquo; Blog Archive <?php } ?>

    Glad I could help. Since this answered the question can you please mark the answer as "accepted" so the question shows up as answered for others who also have the same question? Thanks! Commented Feb 16, 2011 at 19:59
  • I would remove all but <?php wp_title(); ?>. Your current markup does not play well with others.
