#126 closed enhancement (fixed)

Title tags are the same on all pages

Reported by: bercon Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: major
Severity: Version: 1.0
Component: Keywords: SEO, home-theme, has-patch
Cc: oldskoo1, lance@…

Description

The titles (<title>...</title>) are the same on all pages. It would be great to have a unique title (as well as description) for each page.

Search engines will not like a site that has the same title tag on every page.

Replying to bercon:

The titles (<title>...</title>) are the same on all pages. It would be great to have a unique title (as well as description) for each page.

Search engines will not like a site that has the same title tag on every page.


The title tags still contain the same text on the core pages :

Home, Blog, Members, Groups, Blogs

As stated above, search engines discount or mark down pages with duplicate page titles.

Problem apparent in trunk-r1208

To improve the page titles, I'd suggest adding <?php wp_title('&raquo;', true, 'right'); ?> to the BuddyPress home theme header file, with the resulting title looking something like this:

<title><?php wp_title('&raquo;', true, 'right'); ?> <?php bloginfo('name'); ?></title>

See line 7 in:

{install_path}/buddypress-theme/buddypress-home/header.php

I'm attaching a patch as well.
