Hi all

I have been trying to change my home page tile to something. It shows the menu title of the default page as the title even after I change the Menu-->MainMenu-->Home-->System-->Page Title to what I want

Is there something else I need to do??

Hi

If there is a "Home" link in another menu, for example the top horizontal menu and you have set this as the default in the Menu Manager, then you need to change that title via Menus > Top Menu > Home > Parameters (System) > Page Title.

Regards

Is it possible that you have set another menu item (page) as your home page?

If you are using any SEF plug-in you can change your title and meta tag on your homepage from there!

No system title manager but in sh404SEF Control Panel go url manager and home page meta tags and there you can create whatever home title you like

Log into back end of Joomla > components > sh404sef > View/Edit
SEF Urls > Home Page Meta (top right icon) > Title (Change)

Had same issue. After much research...
My "stuck title" was because I had an installed component overriding the page title. My site has Jomsocial installed, and my default Home menu item points to/renders this component which overrides the normal <title>. Fortunately jomsocial had a backend parameter which allowed me to change my home page title that way.

Maybe this might help in some cases - good luck.

So, if i don't have any plug-in installed, and Menus -> main menu -> home -> page title doesn't change anything, did someone find a way to change the title?

Looks that other pages were affected also. Before my page titles came from articles.

If you go to "Global Configuration" on the admin side, then to "Site" over on the right hand side you will see "Search Engine Friendly URLs" I put this to "No" and everything works just fine. Now in version 1.6 that I was testing. I came back in a few days later and turned it back on and everything still worked just fine.

Hey, I thanks I had this issue too, it's a little weird, but I've tried changing some stuff on Kunena, hopefully that helps.

I'm a noobie and I have probably made a mistake by diving straight in with 3.02 - but if anyone can enlighten me how to do this in J3 I would be very grateful.

It's OK I have got it, Main menu and then you edit the first item. Now then do I need that SEF plugin with Joomla 3? It seems to have quite a lot of stuff like that already built in.

Hello,

We had a similar issue on Joomla 2.5. To rectify, we navigated to 'Menu Manager' and selected our homepage 'Menu item'. Next, we selected the 'Page Display Options' tab on the right hand side, added our new title under 'Browser Page Title' and saved. I've added a screenshot for reference.

Thanks,
