Add title tag automatically in WordPress

Basic implementation

On functions.php:

add_theme_support( 'title-tag' );

<head> must not have any <title> tag declared.

Backwards compatibility

In case WordPress version is less than 4.1:

if ( ! function_exists( '_wp_render_title_tag' ) ) {
	function theme_slug_render_title() {
<title><?php wp_title( '|', true, 'right' ); ?></title>
	add_action( 'wp_head', 'theme_slug_render_title' );

Custom queries

Custom queries depends on type of query, so title may be rendered in a wrong way.

add_filter( 'document_title_parts', 'change_title_part', 10 );

function change_title_part( $title ) {
	if ( get_query_var( 'favorites' ) ) {
		$title['title'] = 'Favorites';
	return $title;
