Make sure in your head.phtml file you have do not have fixed title and it has dynamic value.

<title><?php echo $this->getTitle() ?></title>

Check file

  • I checked. That's Ok. If I change database value then my title changed. Commented Dec 22, 2015 at 9:53

You can Add the Page Title in admin panel category page.

For a common page title you can give a value for title prefix in system->Configuration->General->Design->HTML Head->title prefix

  • I need dynamic Page Title but this showing only title prefix Commented Dec 22, 2015 at 10:43
  • Did you add the category page Title? catalog->manage categories ->select a category and give a value to PAGE TITLE

  • It's not happen for only category pages. It's happen for all pages. I just give a example like category page. Commented Dec 22, 2015 at 10:51

you should use

$currentCategory = Mage::registry("current_category");

//Display the current Category Title
echo $currentCategory->getName();

need to reindex and clear the cache.

Note:- reindex requires.

I hope this will help you.


Find file /app/design/frontend/YOURPACKAGE/YOURTEMPLATE/layout/local.xml and find

<reference name="root"> <remove name="breadcrumbs"/> </reference>

If You add this then your Title gone.
