    Question I'm Trying To Force A Custom Title In Wordpress

    Thanks to everyone for their time in helping me with this if you can. I'm trying to force a custom title based on a PHP script that sets the value of the title based on the page it is on. Basically it's the same page but with a change in variable which will give the page Heading a custom heading but it won't change the Title tag's value when the same variable is between the open and close Title tag.

    so it's url.com/video-page?id=question1

    Everything is fine, the heading tag takes the title variable and makes it the heading of the page, but Wordpress seems to want to force the Title into the title of the post no matter what I place between the title tag.

    Now I have the SEO Ultimate plugin going and that could be the problem. If it's not and someone knows about the functioning of Wordpress to the extent that it forces titles then please let me know.

    If not, then I'll hit the forums for that plugin and see what they say.

    Again thank you for your help if you can.

    Disable the plugin and see if your script works. That's step one.
    You can't create artful marketing with color by number seo
