#8394 closed enhancement (fixed)

RFE: Better page titles

Reported by: lucid Owned by: Blackhex
Priority: normal Component: DiscussionPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


Currently the page titles are just generic "Topic List - Project" or "Message List - Project". It would be nice to see the actual topic or forum name there.

(When browsing multiple topics simultaneously in multiple tabs, one can get lost quickly because all tabs are named the same.)

What about now (r9765, r9766)?

Discussion - Forum List - <project_name>
Discussion - Forum: <forum_subject> - <forum_description> - <project_name>
Discussion - Topic: <topic_subject> - <project_name>

Yes, thanks. That's better.

I would maybe suggest moving the variable parts to the front, or shortening the static parts. In a typical browser tab title I still only see "Discussion - Forum: <first few letters of forum_subject>..."

How about something like this?

<project_name> Discussion Forums
<forum_subject> - <forum_description> (<project_name> Discussion Forum)
<topic_subject> (<project_name> Discussion Topic)

I can't move with - <project_name> at the end of title and I'm trying to be compatible with page titles in other Trac sections so another option could be:

Forums List - Discussion - <project_name> 
<forum_subject> - <forum_description> - Topic List - Discussion - <project_name>
<topic_subject> - Message List - Discussion - <project_name>

Consistency with the rest of Trac is important too, of course. Your suggested option would work just as well for me.

So be it then.
