In the overall_header.html in template folder of your style

there must be

Code: Select all

<title>{SITENAME} &bull; <!-- IF S_IN_MCP -->{L_MCP} &bull; <!-- ELSEIF S_IN_UCP -->{L_UCP} &bull; <!-- ENDIF -->{PAGE_TITLE}</title>
Here you can modify if but keep that if you modify it you will lose page titles for different pages

better to use the default one
lost in area 51 :o

Alternatively, you can edit index.php itself if you want to change the title for only the index page.

Code: Select all

// Output page
page_header($user->lang['INDEX']);
Can become

Code: Select all

// Output page
page_header('Forum home');
(note that it will remain the same for all languages)
If you use any apostrophes (') escape it using a backslash (so it becomes \')

go to your ACP/Style/Templates/ hit "edit" choose "overall_header.html" find the line showing in the image attached in this thread and change the red mark indicated in the image with your "Site Name"

Just to make things simple and easy.
Open:Language/en/common.php
Find:

Code: Select all

	'INDEX'						=> 'Index page',
In-line Find:

Code: Select all

Index page
Change it according to your needs.
E.g.

Code: Select all

	'INDEX'						=> 'My Forum',

:lol: The last way is the best if you want 'index page' to be completely renamed to something else.
Second way is the best if you want only to change 'index page' to something else as it appears on index.php, and if you want it to say that for all languages.
Or, just choose one at random if you're unsure. I don't suggest doing the template edits, as that would effect a change for all pages.
