Modifying Portal Browser Title

Does anybody know how would I go about modifying the default <title> tag for my various portal themes.

The default portal tag is currently <title >SAP Enterprise Portal 6.0</title> I would like to personalize this for my company.

Similar to what the SDN site has done "SDN - The SAP Developer Network"

Thanks,

Luke

    OSS Note #757210 "How-to change the Window Title of HTML pages in EP6.0" should give you the idea.

    Hope that helps,

    Hi,

    I am using SAP EP 6.40, SP 10 SP11, Patch 3.

    By default portal displays the browser title as SAP Enterprise Portal 6.0.

    I want to display my customized title. Also, I want to add my own <META> tag. Since these will help me to get my site in search engine easily.

    I know that the title could be changed dynamically using java script. But that will not solve my purpose. Please let me know whether is there any other possible way to customize the <TITLE> tag and to add <META> tag.

    Thanks In Advance

    The referenced notes deal with EP6 SP2, for NW04 based portals use the portal itself.

    System Administration -> System Configuration -> Service Configuration -> Portal Runtime -> Central Configuration

    find and edit the property portal.html.head.title

    You don't have a chance to change <META> tags this way.

      Hi Luke

      Check the follwing Notes:

      695903 - changing of prtcore.jar for changing the browser caption is only valid upto SP2 Patch 4

      757210 - From EP6.0 SP2, Patch 5. I feel you are intrested in this one..here are the details.

      Symptom

      Change Window title of html browser page for Enterprise Portal 6.0

      Other terms

      Component iView property prtCentral prt configuration header browser

      Reason and Prerequisites

      Valid from EP6.0 SP2 Patch 5.

      Customers may not want to see "SAP Enterprise Portal 6.0" in the title of the portal but change this to their own name.

      Solution

      The 'window title' which is a header pragma field that is generated by the portal. To allow changing that value, a modification has been done.

      To change the window title, you must modify the property file prtCentral.properties. This file is loacted in the following folder on your portal server: ..\j2ee\cluster\server0\apps\sap.com\irj\servlet_jsp\irj\root\WEB-INF \portal\system\properties\

      Its name has been modified to prtCentral.properties.bak by the portal during startup, denoting that it has been taken into account (props are now in the PCD).

      Before making any modification, the properties file has to be renamed to its original name: "prtCentral.properties" without the ".bak". The property defining the window title is: "portal.html.head.title". The value, which will be displayed, can be set there. By default the setting is : "portal.html.head.title=SAP Enterprise Portal 6.0".

      The server need to be restarted after the prtCentral.properties modification. Otherwise no change will be visible. The modification has to be done only once in one node. At portal startup it is deployed into the PCD and thus becomes visible / effective at all nodes.

      Regards

    Thanks a lot Nick and Gaurav.

    Now I am able to have my customized title by changing the default value present in prtCentral.properties file.

    Since this is at server level, the customized title is coming for all the pages. Is there any way to customized the title at page level (not through javascript)? so that I can have different title for each page.

    Thanks in advance.
