Hi,

Ok, so I'll get straight to it. Is there a easy way of switching the way Dynamic Titles generates it's text? At the moment it looks like it's Module - Site Slogan - Site Name. Would it be possible to change that to Module - Site Name - Site Slogan? I only ask as it looks a bit weird on my site when it's the slogan first. Yes I know I'm being fussy and if it's not a simple fix I'll happily leave it as is Smile This and the Googletap code are brilliant bits of code and I can't thank the author enough!

Cheers, Paul K

The thought behind this (and I know montego put a LOT of thought behind this and had several discussions about it) was to highlight the most desirable words first for attracting searches. Sometimes the site name can't include the right keywords for attracting searches.

If that doesn't work for you, you should be able to change it. Look for this line in /includes/dynamic_titles.php:
Code:
$newpagetitle = $dt_mod_name . $dt_sDelim . $slogan . $dt_sDelim . $sitename; //Default DT

There are other instances where that is overridden for specific modules, but the logic is all in that file.

Hi,

Thanks for that, I can see where your coming from with the reasoning behind it. I'll stick with it a bit and see if I can become accustomed to it Smile If not than I'll use the pointer you gave me.

Cheers, Paul K

OK. Remember that there are 2 purposes for the title tag - one is for search engines and the other is for people... Hopefully, they can both use the same approach, but sometimes one is more important than the other.

Yeah, unfortunately there is always a trade-off. Are you more concerned with what your "users" will see in their title bars of their browsers, or more interested in improving both your SERPs and CTRs. I chose the latter for this implementation... Wink
