Please change the title tags


The one thing about this forum that pisses me off is the way the title of every page is "Sciencemadness Discussion Board - Powered by XMB 1.9.11". This forum has so many useful posts I bookmark shitloads of threads but when I look through my bookmarks every sm one says "Sciencemadness Discussion Board - Powered by XMB 1.9.11 ". Also when I look through tabs I can't see which tab is which. To solve this you simply use the thread title variable in the title tags like this <title>$thread_title</title>. Something that will take a couple of minutes but save thousands of people hassle.

I agree that this should be done. It is rather annoying.



"There must be no barriers to freedom of inquiry ... There is no place for dogma in science. The scientist is free, and must be free to ask any question, to doubt any assertion, to seek for any evidence, to correct any errors. ... We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it and that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. And we know that as long as men are free to ask what they must, free to say what they think, free to think what they will, freedom can never be lost, and science can never regress." -J. Robert Oppenheimer

Just use the forums add to favorites feature. You can then access all your favorite post via your profile.

"I see a lot of patterns in our behavior as a nation that parallel a lot of other historical processes. The fall of Rome, the fall of Germany — the fall of the ruling country, the people who think they can do whatever they want without anybody else's consent. I've seen this story before."~Maynard James Keenan

XMB has a template feature that include the ability modify the headers (Admin Panel >> Templates >> Headers). The default seems to be this (from the source):
Code:
<title>$bbname - $lang[textpowered]</title>
Someone who cares about PHP more than I do might be able to supply the proper $-variables to put thread names in the header.

I thought every message board does this. I was able to book mark this thread while calling it cnidocyte-rant.

There's a source browser, or you can go to their download page.

If you can figure it out using the template system, I will gladly change the titling. If the change needs direct source code hacking I'm not going to do that because I don't want to have a divergent code base that is harder to upgrade.

Polverone: Edit the 'header' using the template system, find the < title > tag, remove $threadSubject - $versionlong and add
- $thread[subject]

The default variable name is incorrect, also no need to expose the version number.
