V3.2 Remove Board Name From Topic Pages

Post by FidoSysop » Wed Oct 16, 2019 10:13 pm

With the forum name added to topic titles it's over the usual 60 character limit. Id like to remove the site name so only the topic titles show in the seo title line. Been digging around in the header and view topic template files and didn't see it.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

I think the OP means the string in the browser next to the favourites icon... "Glossary Of Political Words and Slang - Democrats VS Republicans Forum" the last bit.

Open the overall_header html file, on line 8 you will see <title>
Remove this: <!-- IF S_VIEWTOPIC or S_VIEWFORUM --> - {SITENAME}<!-- ENDIF --> from the end of the row.

Yes that's what I was looking for. Except it removes the forum name from everything but the index page. Preferably only remove forum name from the view-topic pages. Leave the forum names and everything else feeding the site title to search crawlers. Reasoning behind this is the max characters allowed for the title line in view-topic pages are exceeded.

Thanks.. :D
