It's just a way to size headings, you could use any you wish and style shouldn't matter.

Generally, each style has its own style rule for the h1 tags, the location depends on the style. If you explained what your are trying to do we could better advise you.

Hi, many thanks for your quick replys, All i want to do is change the "page" title to h1, Since googles new update last year, most of the weight goes to the h1 tag, I have run lots of tests on my personal blogs, and i get good results when i use the h1 tag as my title, i have tried a number of different styles and i cannot find one which uses the h1 title tag if anyone knows a style which uses this tag please share

Hmm, prosilver overall_header.html has:

Code: Select all

<h1>{SITENAME}</h1>
Or am I missing the point?

its every page title i want to be h1, i installed pretty much all of the themes, went to the page and highlighted the title viewed source and none of them were h1


instead of this <a href="./viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2">test post</a>

I want this <h1>test post</h1>

Is this possible?

You'll need to look through the template files rather than looking at the page source to find them. If you want to change all the instances of <h2></h2> to <h1></h1> for prosilver that's about 60 files that will have to be changed. If it's just topic titles then start with viewforum_body.html and viewtopic_body.html. Bear in mind that the tags have styling attached so changing the tag type will also affect your page layout unless you also change the stylesheet.

If it's just for SEO purposes I think it will prove to be ineffective. If people start over using <h1> tags Google, and the other major search engines, will quickly change their search algorithms to penalise that behaviour and you will end up worse off.

Hi,
I can't code PHP but I do code HTML. As per the previous post, if this is just for SEO reasons, then you are wasting your time. Google change their algorithm almost every month.
I would advise against this. Leave the "Title" tag alone, it's there for a reason. The BOT looks at the "Title" tag to set the context for the page. Just make sure that your first "H1" tag contains the same (Or at least some of) words as your "Title" tag. EG:
<title=Welcome to Joe Blogs Forum> and H1 reads <h1 Welcome to Joe Blogs Forum /h1> This will score highly.
If you put <title=My Forum> and H1 reads <h1 Click here to sign up /h1> This will score badly.

Hope this helps :!:
