Good day, in connection to the post How did you theme this forum ?, I have some more questions. I hope I'm not too much to you guys and big thanks for being helpful.

My site is not yet live and I need to iron more things. I set my frontpage to http://example.com/forum instead of http://example.com/node. My problem is the title tag which becomes <title>Forums | Site Name</title>. I just want it to become <title>Site Name</title>. And I don't want the page title Forums to appear in the frontpage. You may take a look at it here. I have no idea how to accomplish these things. I notice the TWF frontpage that you successfully get rid of it. I try to use the node-forum.tpl.php as suggested by JeevesBond.

Thank you in advance.

The secret to this is in page.tpl.php, you'll see a <title> tag in there. Change it like this:

<title><?php
 
if ($is_front) {
    print
'Get help with web design, programming, CSS, HTML + more - The Webmaster Forums';
  }
  else {
    print
$head_title;
  }
 
?>
</title>

A bit hack-ish, but it works. Smiling

A better approach would be the Page Title module

then you won't lose your "hack" if you change/update your theme (at least in D6)

Thank you. I use both. I use Page Title module to accomplish the <title> and use the code below to page.tpl.php to hide the page title Forums in the front page.

<?php if ( !$is_front ) : ?>
<h1 class="title"><?php print $title ?></h1>
<?php endif; ?>

I took the above code from here. Thanks again.
