Post by RaidersTalk »

Is there a quick way to remove Index page & View topic from the page titles in version 3.0.11? I would prefer they not show up in search engine results:

Doesn't the "... From Titles" in the name of the article answer your question?

When you click the link it says:

For various reasons, you may decide you want to remove the words "View Topic" and "View Forum" from your board URLs. Regardless of the reason, it's a rather simple process -- two edits total.

I don't care if the URL has it. I just wanted it removed from the titles. Do you have to change the URLs as well?

I personally don't like how it looks in search results. That was the only reason.
