    Hi, for my home page (index.php), I want to show a title like this:

    My Blog Name – my blog’s slogan here

    but for every other page/post I want to show

    (wp title) | My Blog Name

    How can I do this? Thanks in advance.

    Chris

    I’m sorry I accidentally posted this in the Installation category.

    Check out Conditional_Tags.

    In your theme’s header, you could use is_home(), for instance.

    Thanks HandySolo. I tried using is_home() but I’m not sure how to incorporate that into the title for lack of programming skills I suppose.

    Could you elaborate? I appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Something like that:

    
    <title>
    <?php if is_home()
    { bloginfo('name'); blabla slogan }
    else
    { wp_title(); bloginfo('name');}
    ?>
    </title>

    Thanks but I get this error when I insert that in between my title tags:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting ‘(‘ in /home/… in line 6
