Forum and Thread titles not showing


I think this is an easy one, but I've scoured the ACP and specifically Templates without result. For some reason my forum and thread titles are not showing and I don't recall ever trying to change them. I've also searched this forum for any related threads and gone through the Troubleshooting FAQ.

This is a silly problem and it's embarrassing I can't fix it. I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks.

Check these templates:

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Templates -> PAGE_CONTAINER

This code should be present:

						<xen:hook name="page_container_content_title_bar">
						<xen:if is="!{$noH1}">						
							<!-- h1 title, description -->
							<div class="titleBar">
								{xen:raw $beforeH1}
									is="{$h1}">{xen:raw $h1}<xen:elseif
									is="{$title}" />{xen:raw $title}<xen:else
								<xen:if is="{$pageDescription.content}"><p id="pageDescription" class="muted {$pageDescription.class}">{xen:raw $pageDescription.content}</p></xen:if>
Admin CP -> Appearance -> Templates -> EXTRA.css

Make sure you don't have any custom CSS that hides the titleBar, like this:

	display: none;


The code was there, however I reverted the PAGE_CONTAINER template to the default and now it's back. You indirectly nailed it. ;) Now I just need to figure out where I went wrong with my edits. Thank you a ton.

EDIT: I figured it out. A month ago I wanted to remove the redundant forum title on the main page of the forum list. I managed to do that, but didn't realize it removed all other important titles.


Perfect. I removed the contents of the <xen:h1></xen:h1> tags and everything is how I wanted it a month ago (without my horrible mistake). You're fantastic.
