Description Ozgreg 2005-08-17 01:10:07 UTC
Issue: Page Rendering fails to obey MediaWiki:Pagetitle

Mediawiki typically names the pages $1 - {{sitename}} which is fair except
google and other search tools incorrectly interpret the page title thus the
solution is to edit the MediaWiki:Pagetitle and reverse around the entry
{{sitename}} - $1 which should correctly display sitename - pagetitle except the
page title continues to be rendered as $1 - {{sitename}} that is Page Title -
Site Name
Comment 1 Niklas Laxström 2005-08-17 12:05:10 UTC
Fixed in cvs HEAD
Comment 2 Ozgreg 2005-08-18 11:07:01 UTC
Fixed Confirmed.. Like to add recommendation that the default be changed to
{{sitename}} - $1 as typically search engines assume sitename - pagename and
incorrectly index Main Page as the site name.
Comment 3 Niklas Laxström 2005-08-18 16:18:58 UTC
Fixed now also in REL1_5
