Is there a way to remove the following from showing in the title area:

Forums powered by UBB Threads

For example my site is showing as:

Freaks Forum - Sports Gambling Information - Forums powered by UBB Threads

Reason I ask is I am attempted to do self SEO and this is coming up as my title and showing it as too long.

Also it is showing that

http://www.freaksforum.com/forum redirects to http://www.freaksforum.com/forum/

Where can I change this. The only redirect I have in place is http://www.freaksforum.com to http://www.freaksforum.com/forum

I appreciate the help.

Thanks in advance smile

First probably is the redirect.
It could be from the ubb control panel.
But I would think that you added a redirect in the cpanel using htaccess

As far as branding removal it depends.
There is a fee invoked at what level you wish.
Total branding removal is like $199.00 as I recall

When Rick was running the show he clarified that the branding removal only applies to the footer and not the title tag; in fact, we specifically had a conversation here on the forums regarding the title tag if one feels like digging.

For UBB.threads 7.6.x series -
1. GO TO Control Panel > Languages
2. CLICK THE Language Editor TAB
3. CHOOSE "generic.php" from the "Choose Specific Language File" section, then CLICK "Go"
4. FIND "POWERED_BY" and change this to whatever you want
5. CLICK "Update Language File" at the bottom. It does not matter which one you choose since they both do the same thing.
done.

For UBB.threads 7.5.x series -
1. GO TO Control Panel > Templates
2. SELECT "header.tpl" from the list, then CLICK "Edit Selected Template"
3. FIND THIS LINE
Code
<title>{if $inputTitle}{$inputTitle|strip_tags} | {/if}{if $powered}{$powered} UBB.threads&#8482;{else}{$config.COMMUNITY_TITLE}{/if}</title>

REPLACE WITH
Code
<title>{if $inputTitle}{$inputTitle|strip_tags} | {/if}{$config.COMMUNITY_TITLE}</title>

done.

Thank You. I made the change as outlined for 7.5x series

It now shows:

Freaks Forum - Sports Betting Picks and Information | Freaks Forum - Sports Betting Picks and Information

Appears where the the powered by area has been replaced with a second listing of the Community Title.

Did I do something wrong?

I had my host double check everything. The only redirect on file in cpanel using htaccess is www.freaksforum.com redirecting to www.freaksforum.com/forum

I have no idea how it redirects from www.freaksforum.com/forum to www.freaksforum.com/forum/

Also http://www.freaksforum.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/forum_summary I see this if I hit the forum home button or after visiting a thread/topic and go back to the forum.

Is this a normal set up?

Sorry for all the questions, but you guys are the subject matter experts and I greatly appreciate the help and replies.

"FORUM LIST" = List of all your forums, aka the "forum summary" page. This is the default home page if the portal is turned off.

"PORTAL PAGE" = Main forum entry page, if it is enabled. If the portal is not enabled, the home page will be "FORUM LIST"

What is the best or optimal way to go or is there no difference? If one way is better than the other, what is the fix?


Thanks for the below.

Its your call, if you want to use the portal or not use the portal.

Have a quick read through the sections on this page -
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_portal#History

For one of my larger sites, i use the portal as a "dynamic start page" for visiting users. it basically summarizes all that is new and happening on the site at this moment.

On another one of my sites, I basically just use the portal as a "welcome page" that has some specifications about the niche product my forum is related to, and a "table of contents" to pages within the site that may be of interest to the user.

Some people have their own "entry/home page" which has a link directly to their forum. So rather than using UBB.threads's built-in portal system, they have their own setup take care of that, and then let UBBT take care of just the forum stuff.

Its totally your call on how you want to setup your site. But the options are there.

Based on the info on these pages, it appears better to have the / at the end. I have made the change.


Thanks again.


Any thoughts on the previous question regarding the community title appearing twice?
