Solved Naming Portal Page or Hiding Site Name

Post by missing_mile_ghost on May 12th 2011, 4:36 am

Okay, so my conundrum is that I really like the skin I'm using and have customised, however, if I put a site name in (in the config panel of general settings) it shows up under the banner on all pages in massive, displeasing-to-the eye font. However, if I DON'T put a site name in, the portal page has no title, and just shows up in browsers as "Portal", which makes for a fairly boring and uninformative bookmark.

So my questions are as follows:

Is it possible to have a site name and hide it? If so, how? (preferably in laymen's terms)
    OR

Is it possible to not have a site name, but still change the title of the portal page so that it has... well, a title?

Any guidance would be much appreciated!

(For example of annoying "portal" page, go here)
(For what the site name looks like if I plug one in, here's a screenshot.)

No no, I don't want to remove the portal, but if you see when you go to the link, the page isn't using a <head> or <title> like the rest of the board. It's just named "portal" in the browser. I'd like to find out how to put in a <title> without having to actually type a Site Name into the box in the admin>general>configuration section (which shows up as large, ugly text beneath the banner when enabled, as shown in the screencap.)

Alternately, it could work to turn the site name on and hide the large, ugly text beneath the banner. Either method would be lovely for me, only I'm not advanced enough with this set-up to figure out how to do it myself.

Does that make any more sense?

To change the "free forum" blurb, go into your admin panel.

Go to the general tab and scroll down to Forum promotion.

Click on search engines, and change the page titles in there.

Et voila! Smile

No, unfortunately. The page title is working for the forum, but not the portal page. The portal page title is the one I'm trying to edit.

It DOES work if I plug a site name into the config panel, but then the site name comes up as ugly grey text under the logo banner, which I'm trying to get rid of. Different problem I think.

Code:
<form name="_Portal" method="post" action="{S_ACTION}">



and change "portal" ... i could be wrong make sure to back up

I don't have anything like that in the portal_body template that I can see.

Perhaps the board template I'm using has changed everything around. I've tried looking in there already, and I tried putting in <title> tags and it didn't do anything unfortunately.

This is my portal_body code, for reference.

Code:
<table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" align="center">
   <tr>
      <td colspan="3" width="100%"><!-- BEGIN giefmod0 --> {giefmod0.MODVAR} <!-- BEGIN saut -->
      <table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
         <tr>
            <td height="{SPACE_ROW}"></td>
         </tr>
      </table>
      <!-- END saut --> <!-- END giefmod0 --></td>
   </tr>
</table>
<table width="100%" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="{SPACE_COL}" border="0" align="center" class="portal">
   <tr>
      <td valign="top" width="{C1SIZE}" class="column"><!-- BEGIN giefmod1 --> {giefmod1.MODVAR} <!-- BEGIN saut -->
      <table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
         <tr>
            <td height="{SPACE_ROW}"></td>
         </tr>
      </table>
      <!-- END saut --> <!-- END giefmod1 --></td>
      <td valign="top" width="{C2SIZE}"><!-- BEGIN giefmod2 --> {giefmod2.MODVAR} <!-- BEGIN saut -->
      <table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
         <tr>
            <td height="{SPACE_ROW}"></td>
         </tr>
      </table>
      <!-- END saut --> <!-- END giefmod2 --></td>
      <td valign="top" width="{C3SIZE}" class="column"><!-- BEGIN giefmod3 --> {giefmod3.MODVAR} <!-- BEGIN saut -->
      <table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
         <tr>
            <td height="{SPACE_ROW}"></td>
         </tr>
      </table>
      <!-- END saut --> <!-- END giefmod3 --></td>
   </tr>
</table>
<table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" align="center">
   <tr>
      <td colspan="3" width="100%"><!-- BEGIN giefmod4 --> {giefmod4.MODVAR} <!-- BEGIN saut -->
      <table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
         <tr>
            <td height="{SPACE_ROW}"></td>
         </tr>
      </table>
      <!-- END saut --> <!-- END giefmod4 --></td>
   </tr>
</table>

Yaaaaaay! I figured it out myself.

I went through the basic CSS (go figure...) and found the main title. I copied the main title blurb, plugged it into the CSS page and changed the qualities to basically make it invisible.

Huzzah!
