single_tag_title()WP 2.3.0

Display or retrieve page title for tag post archive.

Useful for tag template files for displaying the tag page title. The prefix does not automatically place a space between the prefix, so if there should be a space, the parameter value will need to have it at the end.

No Hooks.


String|null. Title when retrieving.


single_tag_title( $prefix, $display );
What to display before the title.
Default: ''
Whether to display or retrieve title.
Default: true



#1 Header current tags with preceding text

It is assumed that we are browsing the page tags "website promotion".

<p><?php single_tag_title( 'You are viewing the tag: ' ); ?>.</p>

We get it: You are viewing the tag: Website Promotion.


#2 Get the title to the variable

This example shows how to get the title into the $current_tag variable instead of displaying it:

$current_tag = single_tag_title( '', 0 );

echo $current_tag;
