I'd like to add information to my Page Title from a couple of dataObject fields. Basically I have two fields FirstName and LastName. I can retrieve the info and display it on the page fine but I am having trouble telling the Page's Title to add the new information. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance

So how are you displaying the dataobject on the page and how are you displaying the title on the page?. Might be easier if for the <title> tags you don't use the built in $MetaTags function instead do something like..

<head>
..
$MetaTags(false) 
<title>$Title - <% if DataObject %>$Field<% end_if %></title>
</head>

The DataObject is loaded in new page that extends Page (i.e. MyPage.php [MyPage extends Page] ). So in MyPage.ss I can do <% if DisplayPerson %>$FirstName $LastName<% end_if %>

If however I call the same thing from Page.ss I get nothing. Do I need do something like <% if MyPage.DisplayPerson %>$FirstName $LastName<% end_if %>

SOLVED by <% if_MyFunction %><% control_MyFunction %>$FirstName $LastName<% end_control %><% end_if %>
