Customising Titles And Search In Joomla Content Management System
Here I will describe a few more features of Joomla Content Management System that can be customised if required.
Customising Titles In Joomla
In the default Joomla Content Management system installations all the page titles start with the site name. Suppose we are developing the website of a travel agency say ABC Travels Ltd., Goa and we enter ABC Travels as the site name in Joomla. We will have each page title that reads ABC Travels - <Title of the Page as specified by you>. This wastes precious space in the title and therefore it is desirable to remove it. If you do not want the site name to appear on each and every page title as is the default, it can be removed by modifying the source code of Joomla. In addition the meta tag name="Generator" can also be removed. By removing this it will be extemely difficult to tell that your site is using a Content Mangement System. Below is a screenshot of a page where Joomla has been customised by making changes in the source so that the site name does not appear in the title.
Customising Search In Joomla
In the default Joomla Content Management system installation when a vistor searches your site,
there is a facilty to use a search engine to search the term for which the visitor
was searching for. If you are concerned that the visitors search may lead him to a competitors site, then this facility
can be removed by modifying the source code of Joomla. Below is the screenshot of the search
facility as in the original Joomla installation.
In the screenshot below Joomla source code has been modified so the option to search with search engine has been removed.
