Changing ss_site_title?2 users found helpful
When I did a search, I found dozens of pages that have ss_site_title listed as part of their tittle, so this seems to be a common thing, but I don't see anything on how to actually access this element to change it. I have set a name for the page, and that shows up on a few templates, but most of the templates show ss_site_title.
I like Concrete5, but I can't use it if I have to live with ss_site_title showing up as my page name on Google like so many others. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If it matters, I'm on bluehost
I went into MySQL and found a row with ss_site_title in the Config table. I changed that to my company name. That didn't do anything, but then I stumbled on a Site Name option under System & Settings. At this point I'm not even sure if that's the same one I had changed before, but at least it's fixed.
The first time I had set Site Name through Dashboard > Stacks > Site Name. This is where others on the internet were directing users to go. That didn't seem to stick. Then, when I clicked on System & Settings on the path below the Dashboard, and then clicked on Site Name, it stuck. They appear to be the same thing, but when I went through the System & Settings route it still said ss_site_title, so I guess they're not.
It seems that Concrete5 could make this less confusing for the beginner.
I know it's a common problem because when I was researching it, I found lots of sites with the title: ss_site_title::home
I really like Concrete5 but having two locations for the Site Name is just bad design. This should be fixed. I understand that some hosts ask for this in the setup scripts, but not all do. As a result I came really close to installing a competing product both times I uninstalled Concrete5. Why lose users over such an easy to solve issue?
( that took some digging so I'm impressed - I never would have looked under "System & Settings" cause it was far down in the dialog box.
I still would like to get at the style for that footer and make it smaller and change the color - etc.. but this will do for now.
Again - thanks that was a lifesaver.
This very helpful for newbie like me :)
Nevermind figured out I had to debug and clear my cache. Thank you this tip saved my sanity!
