Remove Index page title?

Post by Brandikins11 »

On the window title, you know, where it says your board name then a bullet point, then Index page, how do you remove the Bullet and index page? Example:

In root/styles/your style/template/overall_header.html find:

Code: Select all

<title>{SITENAME} &bull; <!-- IF S_IN_MCP -->{L_MCP} &bull; <!-- ELSEIF S_IN_UCP -->{L_UCP} &bull; <!-- ENDIF -->{PAGE_TITLE}</title>
and replace with

Code: Select all

<title>{SITENAME}<!-- IF S_IN_MCP --> &bull; {L_MCP}<!-- ELSEIF S_IN_UCP --> &bull; {L_UCP}<!-- ENDIF --></title>

Be aware that that will remove the titles from all of the other pages too, so your viewforum and viewtopic pages will also have only your sitename.

How to remove only or change the words 'index page' to something else? Not really SEO friendly.

It's unrelated to SEO.

Open /language/en/common.php
Find

Code: Select all

'INDEX' => 'Index page',
Replace with

Code: Select all

'INDEX' => 'Whatever you want to show',

Thanks, changed it!

I don't agree, unless you use the metatag 'noindex'. But thats a whole different discussion I guess ;-)

Thanks again, I have now the same title tag what I had before converting from phpbb2.0.X
