The title of a wiki-page

Every HTML page has a title which is, for example, shown as the window title of the browser, used as a link description when you bookmark a page and, most important, used to identify pages in search engines results.

For these reasons it is important to have a good (meaningful and descriptive) title for a page. Most wiki engines use WikiNames as page titles. Since WikiNames can be difficult to read and meaningless for search engines, Wikka uses the SmartTitle function to produce HTML titles from the page content.

The SmartTitle function looks for the first, highest-level header in the page and uses it as a HTML title. If no such header is found, then the standard WikiName is displayed.

Example: on this page =====The title of a wiki-page===== is the highest header and therefore used as the title.

Smart titles and special characters

A specific advantage of using smart titles instead of plain WikiNames is that they can contain accented characters and, more generally, any kind of special character. Try adding to a page ===== 홈페이지 ===== and you will see the Korean header show up as a HTML title.
