Topic page title

11 Oct 2013, 20:43

I think the page title when viewing a topic should be in the format:
Topic title • AutoHotkey

instead of how it is now:
AutoHotkey • View topic - Topic title

Generally I can only see "AutoHotkey • " or "AutoHotkey • View topic". It is not very helpful when most of the tabs I have open apparently have the same title.

Actually, the same should go for viewing a forum, though it's not as much of a problem.

Actually, it's already exactly like that.

The title format appears to have reverted. Now all I can see on every tab is "AHKScript (an AutoHotk".

Pages in the User Control Panel or Moderator Control Panel have messed up titles. For example:
Compose messageUser Control Panel • AHKScript (an AutoHotkey Forum)
View topicModerator Control Panel • AHKScript (an AutoHotkey Forum)

Also, is it necessary to have "(an AutoHotkey Forum)" in the page title?

When using Google I still get some results starting with "AHKScript (an AutoHotkey Forum) • View topic - ", also for topics created only less then a month ago. I can't find the exact string in the forum's page source, so is this Google doing some strange extrapolation of old topic titles or is there still some meta-tag stuck for Googlebot's user-agent?

Same exact issue here:

This makes Google search VERY difficult for anyone, especially new users.

I also agree that "(an AutoHotkey Forum)" in the title is somewhat overkill, unless you're doing SEO with these sites?

It appears that the Google Bot uses the prosilver theme, which still has the old title format.

Oh right right, nobody cares unless it's subsilver. BLECH. I hate these uglies.

We should switch to this gorgeous one!

Offtopic: While I don't particularly care for subsilver, I question your sense if you think that's gorgeous.

On my Chrome it also seems to be the same way as AfterLemon mentioned.
I'm using subsilver2.

This issue is still unresolved for the subsilver2 and artodia style and as a result also for Google search results.

(also, now that there's a 'Forum Issues' subforum, perhaps this thread should be moved there.)
