Title/Meta Data not updating

Post by kolbaba » Thu Feb 08, 2018 4:10 pm


I'm working on a clients Joomla site. https://www.usacargotrailersales.com/inventory.html

For whatever reason, when I go to edit this page and change what is in the title/meta section, it isn't updating on the site.

Other pages worked just fine, this is the only problematic one.

Any ideas why this could be?

Possibly being overwritten by the Menu items Page display or Metadata tabs?

Could it be overwritten by settings in the Category options or Menu options?

It is possible to override the title using the Page Display Options in the advanced options of menu-items. Using this option, you have full control about your titles. It is a little more work, but the result could be very beneficial.

we'll show you how to control the metadata on your Joomla homepage.

Find the Joomla menu with the gold star. This indicates that this menu contains the link to your homepage.

Find the menu link with the gold star. This is the link to your homepage.

Open the menu link with the gold star and click on "Page Display Options":

Put your homepage title into the "Browser Page Title" field.

Set "Show Page Heading" to No.

If you want to control the rest of the meta description and keywords for the homepage, click "Metadata Options".

Save the menu link.

Go to Site > Global Configuration.

Make sure the Site Name is entered correctly.
