    Hello. Can anyone please tell me how to customize title tags in the forums? How can I have a title tag that is different from the name of the forum?

    I looked around for this info, but was unable to find it.

    Thanks!

    What do you mean by title tag? I don’t understand. Do you mean the text that appears next to the bb icon at the top of the page?

    Sorry if Im not being clear enough – Im a newbie. I mean the text that shows up in the browsers title bar: <title></title>. When I enter a name for a forum in the Forum Managment Inteface, that name appears in the title tag, however I want the title tag to contain more text than the forum name.

    Oh, sorry. Yeah. I getchoo. Yes. The filter you want to use is bb_title. The way filters work is that you tell bbpress what you want to filter, bbpress gives you the input and you return the output. In this case:

    <?php
    /*
    Plugin Name: Title Modifier
    Author: You
    */
    add_filter('bb_title', 'titlemodify');

    function titlemodify( $title ) {
    //your code that does something to $title;
    return $title;
    }
    ?>

    Paste this into an empty text file, save it as whateveryouwant.php, edit the code so it actually does something with $title, then upload and activate.
