Description (last modified by rgrp) (diff)

As a sysadmin I want to configure basic site title information for use in the site templates.


  • ckan.site_title config variable
  • set this on g in app_globals.py e.g.
    • from pylons import config; g.site_title = config.get('ckan.site_title, 'CKAN - Comprehensive Knowledge Archive Network')
  • use in head title and in main site title/logo section (use it as alt on logo image)
  • Also all other pages (e.g. index, about) which talk about CKAN
    • Is this needed? Would it not be better for people who want to customize the site to simply overwrite those templates?


  • Do we want a site_logo variable whic his use for site title/logo section instead of site_title if site_logo defined?
  • Probably yes, but not part of this ticket.

site_title added in cset:b4c0e0a5630d

site_logo is changeable in one place in the template so not essential
