In the Wagtail Admin, we can change what the Pages are called in the Wagtail Page Explorer. This isn't a super popular feature, but it's good to know that this is possible.
Let's just dive right into this. It's a simple 2-liner, but it can pack a punch. Check it out!
class HomePage(Page): # .. Fields here def get_admin_display_title(self): return "Custom Home Page Title"
All this is doing is changing the default
The default for this method is to return a draft title, if there is one, or return the regular page title. Here's what it normally looks like:
def get_admin_display_title(self): return self.draft_title or self.title
Like most things in Wagtail, it's ultra simple. And that's just one of the things that makes Wagtail such an amazing content management system: no crazy bloat.
