  • How can I change the colon symbol in the search engine result

    Hello,

    I want to know how I can change the colon ( : ) divider to a dash ( - ) on my forum site name/description in the search engine results.
    For an example my site currently looks like this when i search it.

    Site Name: Site Description

    I want it to look like this.

    Site Name - Site Description

    If someone can help me, I would be so grateful.



    Thanks in advance and namaste.

    Do you mean the results on Google, for example?

    It should use the page title. You can edit the code for this in the header template. If that doesn't fix your issue, then it is something only Google can change.

        See my previous post. We don't use the colon in the title so it must be some modification made on your site.
