I've opened my the 1column.phtml file and I'm trying to capture dynamically the Meta Title of the product using the following snippet:


Then I'm trying to put it in the tags of the same page:

<title><?php $this->getLayout()->getBlock('head')->getTitle(); ?><title>

but no lack...

Any advice?

Thank you

  • I don't understand what you are trying to achive ... can you please add a more detailed description?

  • If you go to Catalog -> Manage Products then select a product and then go to Meta Information, there is a Meta Title field there. I want to be able to capture that value in the page using code, and put that value as a page title. I'm using this code: $this->getLayout()->getBlock('head')->getTitle(); but when I'm putting it in the <title> tag in the page I see no difference.
