5 path.inc drupal_set_title($title = NULL)
6 path.inc drupal_set_title($title = NULL)
7 bootstrap.inc drupal_set_title($title = NULL, $output = CHECK_PLAIN)

Sets the title of the current page.

The title is displayed on the page and in the title bar.


$title: Optional string value to assign to the page title; or if set to NULL (default), leaves the current title unchanged.

$output: Optional flag - normally should be left as CHECK_PLAIN. Only set to PASS_THROUGH if you have already removed any possibly dangerous code from $title using a function like check_plain() or filter_xss(). With this flag the string will be passed through unchanged.

Return value

The updated title of the current page.

I tried in mytheme_preprocess_html() and mytheme_preprocess_page(), and nothing changed...
function MYTHEME_preprocess_page(&$vars){
DO I have to do that earlier in bootstrap?

nevermind, It worked. My fault. Delete this posting if possible.
