Anyone else having issues with the DarkShades theme? I went in and hard coded the sites name on the main page but when i go to any of the other pages it still shows the default install text - Your Site name is the site I am working with right now

Adding some more to this post... looks like any theme I use except for the blackcandy is doing this. Any help? Thanks

Might be a dumb question, but have you already entered a new Site Title in the CMS-Backend?

In your theme search for this code somewhere:


This is where the title will appear.

The Dark Shades template has 'Your site name' hardcoded in a few places - see

Either hardcode your own site name in there (not recommended but easy), or use $SiteConfig.Title and enter the title in the CMS like Invader_Zim suggests (better).


<title>Your site name | $Title</title>
