The problem now is that the index of your forum is going to have something like "My community - My community - Index" as a title. This is easily fixed through the language files.
Anyone else using SimplePortal? I'm getting MY COMMUNITY - MY COMMUNITY and I can't seem to fix it. Any suggestions?

Other than that this works great. Thanks a bunch. :)

i made it to prevent on the index to have the forum name twice:

if (substr($context['page_title'],0,strlen($context['forum_name'])) == $context['forum_name'])
echo '<title>', $context['page_title'], '</title>';
else
echo '<title>',$context['forum_name'], ' - ', $context['page_title'], '</title>';

This works excellent. This was one of the few things that I disliked about SMF forums and so glad to have it fixed. Thanks! :D

This is what I use:

	
if (! 
ereg($context['forum_name'], $context['page_title'])) 
	
	
$context['page_title'] = $context['forum_name']. ' - ' $context['page_title'];

First part went fine but my theme doesn't seem to have anything at all called "languages" or anything close...ideas?  I'm using the 1.Snake.1 theme.  :(

Does anyone know how to remove the extra title in the TinyPortal index page? this is the only thing that I can't figure out...

Is there no control panel function for changing the name of your community after the initial set up?  Please forgive my extreme newbie-ness but I couldn't find this info anywhere (even though it's probably in a very obvious place). 

Apologies if this is posted in the wrong place.

Go to Admin -> Server Settings -> Core Configuration. Replace whatever is in "Forum Title" text box.

Thanks JohnyB.  It was right where you said it would be!

Quick hack-it-up for people who have long forum names that could be shortened, like mine ("Unseen Britain - Urban Exploration Community")

That was far too big to have on the front of every tab, and looked terrible.

So, I set "Urban Exploration Community" as my forum title in server options, and in index.template changed title to:
  <title>Unseen Britain - ', $context['page_title'], '</title>';

On the index it shows the usual "Unseen Britain - Urban Exploration Community", and for all other pages it shows "Unseen Britain - <Page name>". EG: "Unseen Britain - Read first"

Hope some of you can make some use of it :).

You're welcome Mac_Hines. Glad I am of help.

Thank you Tiger Tails for your tip. I am sure it will help other members of our community.

I think if I knew the right word for this I would be able to find my answer elsewhere. This is as close to the subject as I found.

I like how the SMF forum displays a small avatar in the browser page name. Mine has the default browser avatar. I would like to add my own small image followed by my sitename (which this post details)

{Custom text I inputed} - Viewing Profile: {Display name}

Open profile.php

Find:
// Set the page title if it's not already set...
if (!isset($context['page_title']))
$context['page_title'] = $txt['profile'] . ' - ' . $txt[$_REQUEST['sa']];


Replace with:
// Set the page title if it's not already set...
if (!isset($context['page_title']))
$context['page_title'] = 'Text you want to show '.$txt['profile'] . ' - ' . $txt[$_REQUEST['sa']];

I wonder if someone would be so kind as to assist me with a problem I am having trying to implement either of the solutions for implementing this change by modifying index_template.php  (the babylon theme)

I tried replacing line:

<title>', $context['page_title'], '</title>';

with grandslams mod, and then with Caseys mod and both resulted in a parsing error. I even compared (using notepad++) the resulting source of the file to ensure that that is the only mod to the file. I used the 1.1.5 babylon theme source as the master file.

Where did I go wrong here? Thanks.

Deal

The error I get is:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting ',' or ';' in .../Themes/babylon/index.template.php on line 81

line 81 is either of the revised lines selected and pasted from this post.
