Please don't bump, it is against forum rules.

Am I right in understanding that you want to remove the content titles from the page titles of all of the pages of your site? Oris it  just the home page?

@allanchan

1.- Mainmenu
2.- Click on "Home":  "Edit Menu Item :: Component [ Front Page ]"
3.- Look for "Parameter" (right pane): "Page Title" : select "Hide".
4.- Save

Done!

moijafcor solution only removes the title from the page.  What you need to do is to turn off the "Dynamic Page Titles" in the SEO tab of the global configuration.

So:
  • Go to Site->Global Configuration
  • Click on the SEO tab
  • Set "Dynamic Page Titles" to "No"
  • Save

I've confirmed that it works.

BTW- If you want to change the title to something other than Home - read a related post: http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic ... #msg862363

If you only want want to get rid of the page title on the Home page only, that's more difficult.  The JoomlatWork stuff won't do that.  It will let you use a different name by not a "blank" one.  The "Dynamic Page Titles" is for all pages so that won't work. 

If you just don't like the word "Home", then change the name in the main menu to something else.  By default Joomla titles a page with the same name as in the menu - so just change the name "Home" to whatever you want, but that will be in the menu as well. The JoomlatWork stuff would let you have a different menu name than the page name, so you could still have Home for the menu but have something more acceptable for the page title.

If you really, really don't like those solutions, then you could write some javascript to change the title after the page has loaded.  Basically you need add to your template. It would look something like:
Code:
<script type="text/javascript">
function load()
{
document.title = "My new title";
}
</script>


and it is activated by :
Code:
<body onload="load()">


Of course you'd have to put a conditional in there to test if it was the home page.

Personally I wouldn't go the coding route.  Way too much of a kludge.

If it were my site and I only wanted to change the "Home" name, here are the priorities I would assign to my choices (best to worst):
  • Live with it - (it just isn't worth the hassles)
  • Change the Home menu item to something else
  • Hack the template with javascript but that will only work if your users have JS turned on*
  • Hack the Joomla code *

I wouldn't use the JoomlatWork stuff to just rename the home page.  It patches lots and lots of Joomla files and the "price" isn't worth the gain.

*Personally I'd rather shoot myself than do the last two because there are just too many support issues. Even if you get them to work now, they won't work later!

Thanks very much for your effort but, will the "home" in the page title causes decrease in rank in Search Engine or affect the SEO activity?

I would doubt that it would affect the rank at all.

I am also trying to remove the Page Title from my home page. I've already followed the directions in this thread, have set the "Page Title" parameter to "Hide", applied & saved the component, and yet it still displays the Page Title.

Could this setting be overridden someplace? The Joomla code hasn't been hacked or revised in any way (it was a default installation from the web host), as far as I know. But if that's a possibility, do you know which file I should inspect?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!


P.S. I'm not sure if this is related to this problem, but I did notice that even after I chmod'ed the "configuration.php" file to 777, it still shows up as "unwriteable" within the Joomla Global Configuration panel. So I've been making my global configurations via FTP & SSH. Since this is unusual behavior, perhaps it's a symptom of a larger misconfiguration somewhere?

Thanks in advance!

Actually "HOme" is substantive so if anything it will help your rank because it will be clearly differentiated from other pages.

mikeleeorg,

Can you be more precise about what you want to remove? - a screen shot would help!

Thanks for the quick reply! Attached is a screenshot. You can also view the site itself at http://www.freemyspacedesign.com/.

Basically, I would like to remove the text " - Front Page" from just the homepage of the site. I need to keep Dynamic Page Titles on for the rest of the site.

I'm not quite sure why this doesn't work, and am open to any suggestions:

1. Edit Menu Item :: Component :: Front Page
2. Parameters :: Page Title = "Hide"

Thanks again!
