Change title around ?

by mrix2000 » Wed May 24, 2017 5:34 pm

Hello all, for seo purposes is there a way to change the title from homepagetitle - newpage to the below


newpage- homepagetitle

The first couple of keywords of a title are always meant to be the more prominent / powerful keywords so have the site title over and over again at the start of each page could be damaging etc ?
phpbb3.2 runs the way I explained but for some reason this mod has it back to front ?
It Really is a great useful mod though so thanks for the effort who created it.
Thanks all

Page titles are handled by phpBB. We'll look into it though.

Hello The phpbb titles are totally fine but this extension when creating pages flips the titles around only on these custom pages.

The titles are only as you want them for viewing forums and topics. Any other page, i.e.: FAQ, UCP, MCP, index page, posting, PMs...every other page that is not a topic/forum shows the site name first. That is how phpBB is currently designed.

Even in this very topic since this is not a regular forum/topic of the board...look up in the window right now ;)

Hello and thanks for replying, I have checked almost all my titles on my forum and they show the page name first followed by the site name which is ideal, the only pages that show the other way around is this extension and the users menu panel, obviously the users control panel links are no big deal etc.
Having this great extension with the page titles showing first would be te icing on the cake for such a very useful forum addition.
Thanks

As I mentioned, page titles are generated entirely by phpBB and phpBB decides who gets to go first based on if it's a topic/forum but nothing else. In fact this is also style dependent too, so it depends on your style.

He states they are already the correct way around as I do but not for this mod etc.

Sorry but I already explained how phpBB handles page titles and that includes how phpBB handles titles for all extensions that have their own pages too.

You can ask phpBB's developers to change all of phpBB's page titles to the format you want globally by submitting an bug report in phpBB's bug tracker.

(Again...look at the page title for this very page you are currently viewing.)

Hello VSE, I fully understand they use the phpbb titles that way around but on stock and when using prosilver liek I do its the better way around, all my forums by stock have all the titles the other way around. I use Prosilver and as the guy stated in that post it has the site name second and not first.
This is what I am getting at all pages by stock on my forums have the site title second and this mod changes it around.

Hello all, I am wondering why there has to be a /apps.php/ before the actual page name ? I can simply remove that from the url and the page still works ? is there a reason for this ?
When you add to area`s like the Navbar, footer and elsewhere it adds the line /apps.php/ so I cannot edit it out ?
Why is the line added ?
Thanks all

Ressurecting this thread to announce that an option is being added to Pages that will allow you to change the title around, as requested in this topic (and others), on a per Page basis.

This is a fantastic mod but unfortunately for SEO where the titles are flipped as I explained so very long ago.

The title of my page shows Metal Detecting Clubs, it shows in the view source as the same but for some reason good and other search engines flip it around in the listings to show as Clubs - Metal Detecting

If you are able to change this brilliant and its only the icing on the cake for this wonderful mod, I would also certainly make a donation if you have a link within the extension for this ? hope you have 8-)

Thanks for the mod update when it comes, will look forward to it. :D

Very strange thing is in my browser window top left it is showing the Title as the correct way around, the issue is when you check the listing in a few search engines they pick it up back to front ? I have just found one of my pages that was cached in Google just yesterday and again it shows back to front ?
For some reason search engines see something else within the code.
