    Is it possible to change the title of the page for seo?

    Currently my page titles to threads are like this: [Thread Title] | [Website Name]

    Is it possible to have titles like this: [Thread Title] | [Name Of Category The Thread Is In] | [Website Name] ?

    All those details are in the html 5 meta data I believe. Not sure but good search engines should already be seeing that. In fact Google is capable of understanding the full path of your breadcrumb

    I would drop the website name --- just make it [Thread Title] | [Name Of Category The Thread Is In]

    Google will append or change your title as they see fit anyway... they actually append my domain url even though I don't want it. Guess they don't like my titles! :cry:

    Oh, Google aren't picking it up :/ So i thought there might be an option i'm missing?

    Anyway of doing this in the back-end?

    Thanks for the info, shame there isn't an option as far as i know :/

    Im not familiar enough with XF yet --- but in the page container template, the line that controls is this:

    You would need to edit that line --its how I'm not sure of at this point.

    Thanks @Joeychgo for that, i'll look into it - I'm like you only brought XF a few days ago so still getting my head around it :)

    Personally, I wish XF had a system like wordpress where an admin could make the change without altering templates.

    Same, it didn't take me long to figure out Wordpress without any help - XF seems a bit complicated, i brought a style, so i'm not sure if i should be editing the core XF files, or the style for changes i need. The support and community is great :)

    XF has Template Modifications. When I want things to carry across multiple styles or simply just don't want to edit a template I create an add-on and attach the template mods to it that way it carries through upgrades in most cases. All our sites have a small add-on with just template mods for various things.

    Did you ever found a valid solution to get this work? for instant using the extra.css ? I would prefer if only the thread title shows up not the website title efter it.
