Define and render a title of the wiki page

<title classes #id>
**Page Title** plugin for DokuWiki

The specified title becomes the title of HTML document in combination with your DokuWiki site title. You may need to set useheading option to “navigation” (other than “0”) in order to show specified title in the browser title bar.

You can use bold, italic, superscript and subscript text to show appropriate title on the page. The formatted page title is shown on the page, but it is converted to a plain text for the title of HTML document. The pagetitle plugin overwrites 'title' value of the metadata to store the plain title text. You can give classes or #id to the title element (<h1>) if wrap plugin is available in your wiki site.

When there are multiple <title> entries in a page, the first entry should be effective.

If you want to set a page title without showing itself on the page, you can instead use following syntax macro:

~~Title: Page Title plugin for DokuWiki ~~

Hierarchical breadcrumbs on the page



This syntax allow you to put a hierarchical breadcrumbs in the page. The place holder <!--YOU_ARE_HERE--> is replaced by the hierarchical breadcrumbs provided by this plugin, which uses page id for a breadcrumbs name independently from $conf('useheading') setting.

~~ShortTitle: pageTitle ~~

ShortTitle macro is additionally available if you want use shorter title instead of (longer) pagetitle in the hierarchical breadcrumbs.
