After I Panelize a node, on the node display, it starts displaying the Menu title as the Page title instead of the Node's title.

The menu title of the node display should be the page title:

From node_menu():

  $items['node/%node'] = array(
    'title callback' => 'node_page_title', 
    'title arguments' => array(1),
    // The page callback also invokes drupal_set_title() in case
    // the menu router's title is overridden by a menu link. 
    'page callback' => 'node_page_view', 
    'page arguments' => array(1), 
    'access callback' => 'node_access', 
    'access arguments' => array('view', 1),

It seems strange that before it is panelized, the node shows the node's title, then after it's panelized, it starts using the Menu link title. See the Screencapture:

Once that happens, you can't change to the title on the page without changing the menu link title.

All right. It does appear that does an additional title set that I didn't realize it needed to do. That'll mean fixing the API to properly set the title from an entity. That shouldn't be too difficult, I think.

Just to note this issue also affects the 6.x version.

I'm not familiar enough with Panels or Panelizer to take a crack at this directly, but here's a temporary workaround to revert this in the theme layer:

 * Preprocess panel pane
function themename_preprocess_panels_pane(&$vars) {
  // Override Panelizer's page title override
  if ($vars['display']->context['panelizer']->data->title) {

This actually needs to be fixed in CTools. I just checked in a fix there.

Adjusting title; this is NOT unique to Panelizer at all.

Seems like this should be back-ported. With the nod from earl I'll cherry-pick the commit back.

Exactly the same bug seems active again in 7.x-1.9
I use the page title panel in websites with panels everywhere.

Problem was seen after upgrading from 1.7 -> 1.9. (Tested on several sites)
After downgrading problem was gone.

I'm seeing the same issue after upgrading from 1.7 -> 1.9. After downgrading to 1.7, the problem goes away.

Update: Solved by disabling the Menu Position module and using Custom Breadcrumbs instead. Now I can use ctools 7.x-1.9

I can confirm the issue.

I encountered an issue where the Panels default content had a title that was left empty. (The "Title type" option was "Manually set".) When a node had a menu item, the menu item appeared as the page title. If I changed the title of the panels page to "%node:title" the problem was solved.

This problem existed for the node_view panels page default display as well as the Panelizer default configuration.

Also note that the site was using the Menu Position module, although I did not confirm whether disabling it changed anything.

EDIT: Out of curiosity I tried disabling Menu Position, and it did not fix the issue.

Thanks @Jessehs. Your suggestion of using the %node:title for the panels page worked great for me ;). I was having this issue while working with Open Atrium.


The setting for the panels page title is found under: "admin/structure/types/manage/[node-type]/panelizer/page_manager/content".
