    title and H1 tags are automatically made the same


    Hi,
    Everytime I post, my title is 'copied' to my h1 tag. Even if I have no H1 tags in the post editor, in the page code viewed in inspector, there is a H1 tag with my title copied there.

    So it doesnt matter whether I use or don't use H1 when writing a post, for SEO spiders, every single one of my posts shows duplicate H1 and title.

    I have no idea how to stop this let alone correct it.

    Can anyone help?

    thanks

    Assuming you're using wordpress (if not give us a clue), it's most likely something to do with your theme.

    If you check via: Appearance>Editor make sure you're looking at the right theme and look through the templates (most likely is in "single post", but it could actually be in several others).

    Thanks, I am using wordpress and newspaper 7 theme. Problem is, I don't what I'm looking for in the code.
    I can scan the templates, but nothing jumps out saying 'make your title tag = H1'

    Also, why on earth would you code that in in the first place? Newspapwer 7 is a premium theme with a lot of users so don't think it would be a bug.

    I was going to download it and give it a try on my testing site, but you said it's a premium them (paid), so I can't.

    You might want to contact the developer.
