What does this extension do?

The WETitle extension allows the page author to control the displayed title on a page, either limiting it to the subpage name or substituting their own complete title.


  • {{#WETitle:}} sets the displayed title to just the subpage name.
  • {{#WETitle:New Displayed Title}} sets the displayed title to New Displayed Title.
