[How to] Change "Welcome to the FrontPage" text

Change Welcome to the FrontPage in Joomla to something more welcoming

One of the annoying things in Joomla is the way you can't seem to ever get rid of the Welcome to the Frontpage message! Here is how to change it or any Joomla page title in any menu item.

Joomla 2.5 / Joomla 3

This message can be found or defined as the "Browser Page Title". Many times, for SEO purposes you would need to define this title to specific keywords which you need for specific pages. To customize the title, you'll need to go to

joomla change page browser title

Menus > Main menu (or any menu item you want to change) > Select the menu item, (such as home) > Page Display > Browser Page Title.

You can change the message or keywords to anything you need to show. Many times you'll want to target specific keywords.

Joomla 1.5

To change the Welcome to the FrontPage message you need to change a system parameter in the Home link. Go to Menus > Main Menu. Here you will find the Home link. Click on the link. On the right of the screen there are a number of groups of parameters:

  • Basic - an explanation on how to customize these can be found here
  • Advanced - defines the order of articles on the frontpage
  • Component - a number of parameters related to the Frontpage component
  • System - this is where we find the title which we want to get rid of!

One of the System Parameters is the Page Title, which by default is Welcome to the FrontPage! Change this to what you prefer, or else you can choose not to show it.

One more thing...
