Hello all,
For creating dynamic title tags,
I tried using

<title>welcome<?php echo '$pagetitle';?></title>
</head>
<body>
:
:
<?php
:
$pagetitle = '$row[2]';
?>
//closing rest of the tags.

I get nothing displayed on title ! So i changed the code to,

<html>
<head>
</head>
<body>
:
:
:
:
:
<?php
:
:
:
$pagetitle = '$row[2]';
<title>welcome<?php echo '$pagetitle';?></title>
?>
//closing rest of the tags.

Its now working. But is this the right way to use title tags in the middle of the code somewhere but not in the actuall <head> section of the page?!
Also, I tried using <meta> tags tooo randomly in the middle of the page code.
Though everything is working fine, i doubt i am actually coding in the wrong way. Is this the proper way to code? I chose this because the first version is displaying me nothing as $pagetitle gets value into it after empty title is displayed:(

Any advise will be appreciated. Thank you all in advance.

the reason the first one didn't work was because you have to set the variable with the title you want before trying to echo it.

just put the title in the head section. at the top of the page add your title code and the echo it where i needs to be.

thank you fr your time Keith

Well. It is correct, but if you want a clean separation between code and layout, I'd suggest you use templates. The html code goes into a template, with variables like title. After setting all your vars, you output the template. Nice and clean. (smarty.net)

Hi kkeith29 and pritaeas
Now I know how to put it in <head> section and retrieve values at the same time. But let me know , if doing it in the way i did might be a problem?! If not i shall leave it as coded but if there is a problem then i shall remove the <title> tags from the <body> and place it in the head section.
Thank you fr your patience and time.

Aside from what they've said about validation just remove the quotes around the variable. Variables inside '' aren't parsed out so you won't get anything but that string. Either use "" or none at all when only echoing a variable.
