Hi

I've applied Tibors fix to the duplicate titles problem but still suffer the same problem:

Seems that Joomla is putting in a componentheading and a contentheading.

Any ideas

Cheers

Cal -

Try this. In addition to Tibor's fix, also go into your Article Layout menu item and set "Show Page Titles" off and remove the value (if there is one) from the Page Title text box.

We're close to 1.5.5 . Thanks for the patience, folks.

Amy :)

A bookmarklet for those of you that are going into each menu item, clicking the System slider, clicking No, and then clicking Save:

Code: Select all

javascript:document.getElementById('paramsshow_page_title0').checked='checked';submitbutton('save');


Saves a few clicks. :)

Oh, and lest we all forget, 1.5.4 actually fixes a ton of issues with titles. This whole double title thing is just a minor downside of the good things. :) Kudos to Amy and the rest of the squad.

Thanks for your support of the Bug Squad, Yorb, it is one of the best teams I have ever worked with. The kudo's go directly to Elin Waring and to Ian MacLennan for hours of analysis and development and testing. Check out Elin's blog Closing 8369. I am so pleased that you recognize in spite of this failure in testing (Yes, that was my area of assistance. :-[ ), this work does fix a ton of issues with titles.

I've also applied Tibors fix to the duplicate titles problem. It works for me, but only at the front page articles.
Only the submenus in main menu wich are build with Articles in a Catagory still contain twin titles. Has anyone experienced this also? Or is it just me? :-[

I'm not trying to complane, because I'm very pleased with the update 8)

soepwuffer -

Some have found this approach works better for them. Or, if you can wait a few days, 1.5.5 is very close.

Thanks for your support!

I just encountered this double title problem so i thought i'd bring up the thread as there's still no workaround out there.

I'd like to do a blog view, with article titles enabled and linkable but no double titles when the article is opened. So i just went ahead and opened blog_item.php and in this line

Code: Select all

   <a href="<?php echo $this->item->readmore_link; ?>" class="contentpagetitle<?php echo $this->item->params->get( 'pageclass_sfx' ); ?>">

changed .contentpagetitle to .pagetitle (class name optional)
Then in the css i added

Code: Select all

.contentpagetitle {
   display: none;
}

So i have pagetitle intact in the blog view but disabled in the articles.

I do hope that this issue will be addressed in a future version.

My joomla version is 1.5.6 (aug 12), the bug still exists.

Looks like my previous post was premature. It works with section blog layout but not with category blog layout. I'm still having double titles for news. No matter how i set article title in the admin.
So can we expect a proper fix in the near future? I'm not being impatient but it was promised for 1.5.5 and now 1.5.6 is out and the fix is still nowhere. Sorry if this question has been answered earlier, i just didn't find a reliable solution in this topic.

You can always do a layout over ride. That is preferable to doing core hacks.

Wafen -

The Double Content Titles issue is about Double Titles on the Article Page. Is that the same problem you are experiencing?

If so, updating the blog_item.php file for either the category or the section view will make no difference on the article page. blog_item.php outputs the article teaser on the blog page itself.

Maybe I missed this, but can you explain where you are seeing double titles? Would you be willing to share your URL? I'm certain we can figure out a way to resolve this for you.

Thanks!
Amy :)

I'm going to suggest that this be split into a new topic since it's not actually related to the topic about your specific issue.

Elin -

I might not be understanding so let's wait and see what Wafen has to say. I agree, though, if this turns out to be Double Titles on any other page besides the Article page, starting a new topic makes sense. This one is already too long. :-P

Thanks!
Amy :)

I'm just saying the title is 1.5.3 to 1.5.4 ... it doesn't make sense to be discussing 1.5.6 in here.

I see. Well, I'm pretty certain waffen is saying that this problem was caused by the upgrade to 1.5.4 from 1.5.3 which we said would be fixed in 1.5.5, but it wasn't fixed for waffen in 1.5.5 or 1.5.6. That's when waffen mentioned being patient - hoping since 1.5.5 didn't fix it, maybe 1.5.6 would - and it didn't.

Moral of the story, Waffen: It does not pay to be patient.

Now, where the heck are you? Elin and I want to know what's going on! Hurry up! hehe! 8)

FIXED: Double Content titles in Joomla

Postby diekleinbaas » Tue Jan 12, 2010 3:58 pm

Hi.
I had this same problem and have just solved it, here is how I did it.

First use solution from "the_jackal" as quoted here (see page 2 of this thread):

the_jackal wrote:Hi to all!

Based on mcsmom hack - posting.php?mode=reply&f=430&t=306067#pr1344992 - if you don't want to feel as "hacker" :p - try to use this solution ( thanx to nice Joomla! MVC framework!) ;)

1. Create folder /html/com_content/article/ in your current template ( full path in default template show : /templates/rhuk_milkyway/html/com_content/article/).
2. Copy the changed default.php to this folder. (See my attachment).
3. Your Joomla! 1.5.4 now render this file instead of core file, t.m. you not need change core file -> not a "hacker", but developer! :D

Hope this help.

changed_default_php_for_154.zip


Then comment out or delete line 7 of his default.php file.
To do this, open the file in notepad and delete this line:
<div class="componentheading<?php echo $this->params->get('pageclass_sfx')?>"><?php echo $this->escape($this->params->get('page_title')); ?></div>
or comment it out by adding <!-- to the start and --> to the end.

Save the file and try Joomla.
Note: I have "Show article title" set in Article Manager > Parameters and have "user global" for all settings in the articles, I am also using "use global" for the show title in the menu params and the menu type is Section Blog.

Hope this fixes the problem for you all. I tried upgrading joomla first but the upgrade caused more harm than good. Also the_jackal's solution worked for some pages but not all untill I commented out the above mentioned line.

I just ran into this problem after migrating a site from 1.5 to 1.7. The problem is that the parameters in each menu item are different between the two versions. The only way to fix it is to click on each menu item and then save it.

This updates the menu parameters to the correct format. See example below.

This is a pretty bad migration problem, especially if you have lots of menu links. I'm starting to see why some many web developers are migrating to wordpress instead of Joomla: Jooma has had painful upgrades between each version whereas wordpress has one-click updates and everything works. I'm not trying to start a wordpress v joomla war here. I love Joomla, but am getting really tired of the lack of an upgrade path and migration tools that can't correctly convert Joomla core content. Is it too much to ask that the migration tool properly migrate Joomla Content?).
