    There's a JavaScript solution to this, but I remember it crashes certain browsers under certain conditions with certain OS and platform combinations.

    I'll look it up if it's still wanted.

    well i looked it up... I found some clues, but in the end I trawled the php files to all who would like to do this - check to see what these chages look like open up comments.php in the main directory look for $Context->PageTitle = $CommentGrid->Discussion->Name; and replace with $Context->PageTitle = $CommentGrid->Discussion->Name.' - '.$CommentGrid->Discussion->Category; Close and save. Now open themes/head.php Look for <title>'.$this->Context->Configuration['APPLICATION_TITLE'].' - '.$this->Context->PageTitle.'</title> And replace with <title>'.$this->Context->PageTitle.' - '.$this->Context->Configuration['APPLICATION_TITLE'].'</title> Close and save Upload files and your done. Hope this helps :)

    Worth noting that the first change isnt actually necessary but some people may prefer it. Also any changes to theme files should be done by copying the file you want to change into the themes/vanilla directory to make it upgrade-proof.

    Can these changes be made into an extension, so they overwrite other themes and work with any styles?
