XF 1.5 Board Title being appended to Page Meta Title

    I am extremely careful and meticulous about my SEO because I strongly believe there's a reason only certain websites rank high.

    I would prefer that the "Board Title" not be forcibly appended to all my "Meta title" tags on every page of the site.

    Just Started my Treatments. | HairLossTalk Forums
    Best Topical for Thinning? | HairLossTalk Forums

    Google already puts the site name at the end of all my title tags in its search results. So they end up looking like this:

    Just Started my Treatments. | HairLossTalk Forums - HairLossTalk
    Best Topical for Thinning? | HairLossTalk Forums - HairLossTalk

    How can I remove it from there, without having it disappear from other more important areas (emails, etc)?

    Edit template: PAGE_CONTAINER
    Replace
    Code:
    <title><xen:if is="{$title}">{xen:raw $title} | {$xenOptions.boardTitle}<xen:else />{$xenOptions.boardTitle}</xen:if></title>
    with
    Code:
    <title><xen:if is="{$title}">{xen:raw $title}<xen:else />{$xenOptions.boardTitle}</xen:if></title>

    Since you are awake at this ungodly hour :)

    I was finally getting around to trying this. Apparently I already did it - and forgot:

    Looks like I commented it out. Or someone did. So now im very confused.
    What is controlling the thread meta title tags here?
    I did not put his suggested line of code in, instead.

    Oddly i see the same line of code 4 lines below it ...

    Im afraid to touch anything here.
    Should I un-comment that line ... and modify it as he says to in the post above?
    Everything should be okay?

    You added a custom <title> tag implementation below. The commented out version is the original.

    You can make the adjustment in the else tag you added if you like.
