I'm having a strange problem where the <title> element has no content for category or product pages.

Other pages work as expected.

On product pages the social graph tags (eg, og:title) do contain the correct values.

Where this gets confusing for me is the <title> element has a value if I use the Blank or Luma themes - it is only empty in my custom theme.

If I fill in SEO attribute values for a product that will show up for the <title> element for my theme, but that's not practical as there are over 8000 products to update. It works for the pre-provided themes anyway, so I feel like there is something else going on...

Has anyone else seen anything like this before?

My theme removes the breadcrumbs block, this in turn breaks <title> values for products and categories.

  • An easy fix for this is to extend the template (Magnto_Theme/templates/page/html/breadcrumbs.phtml) in your custom theme but leve it empty. This will stop breadcrumbs from displaying but keep the titles working. May 7, 2021 at 21:15
