Extension to change homepage title for phpbb

Post by kamaleon » Mon Oct 22, 2018 11:43 am

Hello,

Would it be too difficult to create an extension to change the homepage title?

How it is right now it adds "index page" to the title of my forums.

An extension to change that would be awesome.

Thanks

What would be different to ACP > General > Board setting > Board index text?

You can't remove or change "index page" in there from the title.

As David said above, you can change it to whatever you want.

I think he means in the browser title bar.

Easiest way is to change it in the language file.

an extension for a 1 line change in the language file?

Writing the extension takes more time than editing the language file 10 times (once for each update) and I doubt 3.2 will reach 3.2.13
A bug is a feature that hasn't made it to the manual (yet)

Well to be honest I don't really know why this can't be change in the admin, or why it is even there!

Isn't this what you want Board Settings?

to add this to the admin panel would also require an extension. It is there becuase this is pretty much the standard way for most websites to do and has been forever.

It is doubtful you will find anyone to take the time to create an extension for something this minor. you can change it in the language file, you can change it in the overall_header.html file of your style etc.

usually extensions are for things that a lot of people would find useful, this is simply not one of those things.

however, someone may decide to spend the time to create it for you, you never know.

luck,
robert
