I have managed to change the title of the Register page with the following code in local.xml

  <reference name="head">
    <action method="setTitle"><title>Create New Customer Account - Bomber Jacket</title></action>

How can I do something similar for a page like www.example.com/about-us.html ?

Unfortunately, Magento does not support page specific handles for CMS pages.

You can only change title for all CMS pages via local.xml which is not what you want.

I suggest you use the backend when editing the CMS page you can add the following code to the Layout Update XML section:

<reference name="head">
    <action method="setTitle"><title>New Title</title></action>

But I'm pretty sure you don't have to use XML and you can do that by changing the name of the CMS page.

  • The reason I want to do it this way is because it also changes the breadcrumbs if you change the name of the CMS page Commented Sep 7, 2016 at 7:56

I guess that the URL specified is CMS page. In that case you can set the XML instructions in the CMS page itself, in: Design -> Layout Update XML:

<reference name="head">
    <action method="setTitle"><title>About My shop</title></action>
