wp_title not working for front page

Reported by: thomask Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: trivial Version: 2.7.1
Component: General Keywords: wp_title
Focuses: Cc:


Starting from 2.7 (and the same for 2.7.1) the wp_title function does not work for homepage (both static and last new settings in options-reading)
e.g. if i do <title><?php wp_title() ?></title> and set up a static page, there will be no title at all. If I set up news page and go to that page which was previously set-up as static, the normal title of the page appears, but the title of homepage will be again nothing.

Text from #9222:

i have posted a bugreport that wp_title is not working on homepage for both static page and news page. I do not see it here, but i have probably found the problem

in general-template.php, in wp_title function, row 435, there is

if ( is_single() ( is_page() && !is_front_page() ) ) {

so the front page is explicitely excluded. And the problem is, that there is no definition for front page. So you should add definition for front page, or delete "&& !is_front_page()" part (but i do not know if it would work for front_page which is not Page)
