Default Title for home.php

How can I change the <title> for home.php only?

Sometimes X-cart makes me feel stupid.

Try this (not tested):

Code:
{strip}<title> {if $main eq "catalog" && $current_category.category eq ""} YOUR HOME PAGE TITLE {else} NOT HOMEPAGE TITLE {/if} </title>{/strip}

shouldn't this thread be in template editing? thread moved.

PS -- if you're giving page titles your energy -- I STRONGLY recommend the "suite" of meta-tag mods from BCSE

Product Meta Tags Plus!
Static Page Meta Tag Control
Category Meta Title Control

These three mods give you total control over every page's title and keyword and descr. Don't go live without this in place!

One major weakness of stock x-cart is the SEO-hostile page titles... Google sees the stock page titles as spam... duplicate content, etc... you really need unique page titles, PER PRODUCT -- these mods will get you there.

Good luck.

I recently installed Product Meta Tags Plus, but it doesn't help with home.php

yes, that's why you should put

{if $main eq "catalog" && $current_category.category eq ""}
HOME PAGE TITLE
{else}

(with appropriate closing {/if} if needed)

before anything else.

Where do you add this code? In home.PHP and if so where.

Sorry new to PHP.

Thanks

Nope, add it just under <title> in /skin1/customer/home.tpl
