Modify Index Homepage Title of MyBB Forum

Upon a fresh installation of MyBB forum software, the default homepage title is the name of the forum. Sometimes you want to add more keywords in it or change it in some way for the sake of SEO but don’t want to tamper with the forum site title itself because that’d make it look long and nasty.

How do we do that?

Simple, just follow me: Log into the Admin CP -> Templates & Styles -> Templates -> Default Templates -> Index Page Templates -> index. Now you should see the HTML template of MyBB index page.

Locate this line:


And possibly, change it to:

<title>{$mybb->settings['bbname']} - site keywords, your keywords and more keywords</title>

Just change it according to your SEO keywords research.
