page titles

  • is there a way to create a custom title for the pages, so that it differs from the link and also so that it doesn’t put the site name into it? so it would become “title” rather than “title | name”

  • Edit your theme. The title | name piece is written in your header: Appearance->Editor->Header.

    If you publish an article the permalink becomes fixed. You can then change the title to be different than the permalink. I’m also pretty sure the permalink is editable when you are writing the page or post.

    I would add an is_single check to the template where you make the change so that the full title is shown on index and category pages. Try this:

    ` <?php if( is_front_page() ) : ?>
    <title><?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?></title>
    <?php elseif( is_404() ) : ?>
    <title><?php _e(‘Page Not Found |’, ‘titan’) ?> | <?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?></title>
    <?php elseif( is_search() ) : ?>
    <title><?php printf(__ (“Search results for ‘%s'”, “titan”), attribute_escape(get_search_query())); ?> | <?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?></title>
    <?php else : ?>
    <title><?php wp_title($sep = ”); ?> | <?php bloginfo(‘name’);?></title>
    <?php endif; ?>`

    That should give you what you are looking for.

    thank you so much!!!!!
