ZenCart Ecommerce Store Homepage Title Meta Tag Displaying HOME_PAGE_TITLE

When upgrading ZenCart it is easy to miss certain files during the merge process of the upgrade. There are numerous directories that are easy to look over but two directories to note include the includes/modules/YOUR_TEMPLATE/ and includes/languages/english/YOUR_TEMPLATE directories. It is easy to overlook files that may have been modified in either of these locations. The HOME_PAGE_TITLE language tag would more than likely be from the includes/languages/english/YOUR_TEMPLATE/meta_tags.php.

During the upgrade process the includes/languages/english/meta_tags.php file was probably replaced but if there have ever been any modifications based on template to the site then you need to look into your templates directory located in the languages folder.

Quickly Add a HTML META Tag to a Web Site Running Joomla

You can quickly add a meta element to a web site running Joomla using the web administration control panel. In my case I needed to add a meta tag to the index page of a web site for Google to authorize access to their Webmaster Tools section. When you sign up for the Webmaster Tools Google will ask for you to verify the site in one of two ways which are either adding a meta tag to the index page of the site or by creating a new HTML page. The easiest method using Joomla is to add the new meta tag.

Example Google Webmaster Tools Meta Tag:

bash

  1. <meta name="verify-v1" content="UDvQfRo10KRyyWW322Ssfz/sV3zdKrgLEo=" />
