[Resolved] Page title posts page

  • Hi there,

    I am using twenty twelve. I have a single posts page (news) on my website. All my other pages have the page title appearing on it apart from my news page.

    Any ideas please?

    Many thanks,
    Kirsty

  • the ‘posts page’ is generated by index.php;

    to have the page title appear in the ‘posts page’ you will need to do some coding;

    start by creating a child theme of Twenty Twelve to work with;
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    (it is not recommended to edit the default theme directly)

    copy index.php into the child theme;

    edit index.php;
    after this line:

    <div id="content" role="main">

    add:

    <?php if( is_home() && get_option('page_for_posts') ) : ?>
    		<header class="entry-header">
    			<h1 class="entry-title"><?php echo apply_filters('the_title',get_page( get_option('page_for_posts') )->post_title); ?></h1>
    		</header>
    		<?php endif; ?>

    Thank you that works a treat! Next question – could you tell me how to edit the sidebar on the posts page please? I want to add a title to this and display news posts.

    Many thanks in advance,
    Kirsty

    Hi, I figured out how to edit the sidebar.
    Please can you tell me how to get a title on the single posts page? Currently the post title is appearing as the page title.

    (i.e. when you click through into a post).

    Many thanks,
    Kirsty

    Please can you tell me how to get a title on the single posts page? Currently the post title is appearing as the page title.

    can you post a link to an example post?

    this would be handled by single.php and content.php of Twenty Twelve, and it should show the post title;

    from content.php:

    <?php if ( is_single() ) : ?>
    			<h1 class="entry-title"><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
    			<?php else : ?>

    Hi

    This is my test News page. http://vip.codestring.co.uk/index.php/news/ which does show the tile.

    If you click through to the blog there is no page title.

    Thanks a lot in advance,
    Kirsty

    I don’t know what other title you expect to see on a single post.

    are you referring to the meta title?

    can you post a link where it does not show a title? and explain what you want to see?

    Apologies, this is the first news page I have done so not too familiar with how it should look. I was still hoping to see the News page title. Would this be possible?

    Tx,
    Kirsty

    you can output the ‘news’ title before the single post title;

    in content.php, edit this section:

    <?php if ( is_single() ) : ?>
    			<h1 class="entry-title"><?php the_title(); ?></h1>

    for example, change to:

    <?php if ( is_single() ) : ?>
    <?php if( get_option('page_for_posts' ) ) { ?>
    	<h1 class="entry-title news-title"><?php echo apply_filters('the_title',get_page( get_option('page_for_posts') )->post_title); ?></h1>
    <?php } ?>
    			<h1 class="entry-title"><?php the_title(); ?></h1>

    (you can use the new .news-title css class for formatting; no idea if this messes with the seo ideas of how to use the h1 tag)

    OK thanks for your help, in that case I will leave well alone.
    Thanks a lot, I appreciate your reply.

    Kirsty
