PhpBB Simple/Advanced

Re: [RFC|Accepted] Optimized Page Titles patch

Re: [RFC|Accepted] Optimized Page Titles patch

Okay then, lets make an example of a topic where the topic title an board name is used. Car broken - Evy's place You can make arguments proving you are right, which you will be in some cases.

Re: [RFC|Accepted] Optimized Page Titles patch

You are replacing the title code with this: <title><!-- IF not S_VIEWTOPIC and not S_VIEWFORUM -->{SITENAME} - <!-- ENDIF --><!-- IF S_IN_MCP -->{L_MCP} - <!-- ELSEIF S_IN_UCP -->{L_UCP} - <!-- ENDIF -->{PAGE_TITLE}<!-- IF S_VIEWTOPIC or S_VIEWFORUM --> - {SITE...
