Magento Title Tag Hack

If you have a website powered by Magento and have an issue with your title tag also being displayed as top or bottom breadcrumbs as well as h1 heading tag, read on this little hack will resolve the issue. This will allow you to specify whatever you want within title tag without it affecting the other elements on the page.

Set up an XML layout update under the page layout on the design tab of a CMS page like this:

<reference name="head">
<action method="setTitle"><title>Your Page Title Here</title></action>
</reference>

Depending on the controllers this might change both page and breadcrumb titles.
