The theme is based on the excellent Casper theme 1.3.4.

Ideas

Improve blog title representation for SEO in <title> tags

Problem

Current representation is {{@blog.title}} for the home page and {{title}} for any page. This is by making use of the {{meta_title}} helper in Ghost.

Preferrable would be to have it as {{@blog.title}} for the home page and {{title}} - {{@blog.title}} for any blog entries.

Solution

In Ghost, the default.hbs contains a template for all pages. This has the following header:

<title>{{meta_title}}</title>

Now to change that for all pages, we create a new template that is not inserted into default.hbs by default. So page.hbs is identical to default.hbs. Then we change the title tag to

<title>{{meta_title}} - {{@blog.title}}</title>

This way all posts still only have the title of the post as the title of the page, but all static pages are shown as page title - blog title.
