Get WordPress title for page, post, category, archive in Oxygen

26. 1. 2021 in ,

Want to create only one template for Header and Footer – the main template – in Oxygen sometimes? So You need to display the title of current page, post, archive, category in one place. It cannot be done with Oxygen conditionals :(. So you have to make it done with code block and custom PHP.

We will use this functions:


Use this code in Code Block

if ( is_category() ) {
		$title = single_cat_title( '', false );
	} elseif ( is_tag() ) {
		$title = single_tag_title( '', false );
	} elseif ( is_author() ) {
		$title = '<span class="vcard">' . get_the_author() . '</span>';
	} elseif ( is_post_type_archive() ) {
		$title = post_type_archive_title( '', false );
	} elseif ( is_tax() ) {
		$title = single_term_title( '', false );
	} elseif ( is_home() ) {
		$title = single_post_title( '', false );
	}  elseif ( is_page() ) {
		$title = single_post_title( '', false );
	} elseif ( is_single() ) {
		$title = single_post_title( '', false );
	} elseif ( is_search() ) {
		$title = "Search";
	} elseif ( is_404() ) {
		$title = "404 not found";
<h1 class="responsive-h1"><?php echo $title; ?></h1>

Put it in the code block and style with your custom classes.. I am using hte .responsive-h1 class.

Code block with dynamic Title

    – 404 Error page


    1. Hello Mike! I have Updated the code with this:

      elseif ( is_search() ) {
      $title = "Search";
      } elseif ( is_404() ) {
      $title = "404 not found";
