Google webmaster tools is reporting duplicate page titles on my sites, which seems to be a result of connections creating pages for each entry an using the host page title, I have attached a screen shot.
I see there are SEO options in settings but not sure this will help

Can you attach a screen capture of the Connections : Settings, SEO tab? You should have both the page title and page meta title enabled. That should prevent duplicate page titles as the entry name would be prepended to the root page title.09/03/2014 at 8:43 am #30262609/03/2014 at 10:48 am #302650
Looks like you’re using WordPress SEO by Yoast, yes? Seems that is overwriting the page title. Looking at Yoast’s code, I think the simple solution would be to run the Connections page title filter after Yoast.
Try changing the

After you do, share a link that is being reported as a duplicate title so I can see if it is working or not. If that is the solution, I make this change to so it is included in the next update.09/03/2014 at 11:13 am #302656

Sorry Steve. You have lost me. Where in WP Multisite do I access that path?09/03/2014 at 12:29 pm #302666
Use the plugin editor or log into your site with FTP, download and edit the file, save and upload, overwriting the original.09/03/2014 at 1:15 pm #302674
OK, done that steve
here is an example of a duplicate title http://www.itshowcase.co.uk/erpsoftware/name/abby-griffiths/
btw, webmaster tools is also reporting some duplicate meta description e.g. http://www.itshowcase.co.uk/erpsoftware/name/ian-royall/09/03/2014 at 1:50 pm #302678
Ok, the duplicate page title should be resolved now. I’ve made this change to Connections so all future version will contain this fix.
The duplicate meta description is a little more difficult to fix. I’ll have to release an update to address it.
I scheduled this update to release next week. Apologies for the trouble!
