How to remove the » from the title bar in WordPress

Within WordPress the title is created dynamically. Personally I don’t like the » (“& raquo ;”without changes). I’ve got the feeling that Google and other search engines don’t like them. But it’s hard to remove them. The format of the title can be changed in the theme files, but not the ». Here’s howto.

  1. Open “/wp-includes/template-functions-general.php”
  2. find “function wp_title” approximately on line 139.
  3. Notice “»”
  4. You might replace it by any other sign if you want to, but you could also just remove it.
