Title Rotater
--------------------------------------
Created By: Null Parameter

This mod is tested with 3.7.3, but may work with earlier versions.

Please leave any comments, suggestions or bugs.

Description
This mod takes a list of admin defined possible titles and chooses one randomly to be displayed as the page title for FORUMHOME. Both a prefix and postfix can be defined to encapsulate the random title.

You may also use the keyword {username} to specify the current user's name.

See the attached image for the ACP options panel.

Demo
You can see my site use this on FORUMHOME, here:
http://www.xforgery.com/forum/index.php
Refresh it a few times to see different titles.

Although, it doesn't use the postfix option.


Limitations
  • This mod will not work if you have altered the default title in the FORUMHOME or FORUMDISPLAY template, or if a style doesn't use the same format.

    The Title code in FORUMHOME should appear like this:

    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


    The Title code in FORUMDISPLAY should appear like this:

    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Fixes

* Version 1.2
  • Changed {username} occurences for unregistered users to $vbphrase[guest]
  • Added FORUMDISPLAY capabilities
  • Added Options to enable/disable individually on FORUMHOME & FORUMDISPLAY
  • Reworded a few things

This is the first mod that I decided to make into a releasable form, so I hope you like it.

No, I wasn't responding to any request. Although, something similar might be done to make a similar affect for forum descriptions.

Liar. You responded to my request, just not formally.

Here's a solution to display nothing instead of the "unregistered" username for guests. Just put the if-conditional around the {username}, it must look like this then:

<if condition="$show['member']"> {username} </if>

I had considered doing that as well, but decided against it because if {username} appeared inside of a sentence then leaving it blank might make the sentence appear funny.

I thought about adding an option to disable the mod for Guests. Think this would be a good idea?

I guess something like that would do the job
I'll upload a version with that change later today.

I just added into the latest version the ability to apply this to FORUMDISPLAY, it is now an additional option, along with the ability to enable/disable either of the two locations.

And I am not too familiar with how SEO works, so I am unable to comment on this.

I still couldn't tell you as I am not really familiar with SEO. I'm not sure how much the title of a page plays into optimization for search engines. Although, I know that there are main stream sites that do something similar to this.
