Hi @Matt. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- To remove the default document title in a Refine application, you can use the useDocumentTitle hook from Refine's router provider packages. This hook allows you to set a custom title for your pages, which can help prevent the flash of the default text. Here is how you can use the useDocumentTitle hook: 1. Install the necessary package: Ensure you have the required router package installed. For example, if you are using react-router-v6, you should have @refinedev/react-router-v6 installed. 2. Use the useDocumentTitle hook: You can use this hook in your component to set a custom document title. Here is an example:
import { useDocumentTitle } from "@refinedev/react-router-v6";

const MyCustomPage = () => {
useDocumentTitle("My Custom Title");

return (
<div>
{/* Your component content */}
</div>
);
};
import { useDocumentTitle } from "@refinedev/react-router-v6";

const MyCustomPage = () => {
useDocumentTitle("My Custom Title");

return (
<div>
{/* Your component content */}
</div>
);
};
This will set the document title to "My Custom Title" when the component is rendered. Additionally, ensure that you do not have the <DocumentTitleHandler /> component inside your <Refine> component, as it might override your custom title. You can check this based on the information from the GitHub issue (https://github.com/refinedev/refine/issues/4793):
import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";

const App = () => (
<Refine
// Ensure DocumentTitleHandler is not included here
/>
);
import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";

const App = () => (
<Refine
// Ensure DocumentTitleHandler is not included here
/>
);
For more detailed information, you can refer to the useDocumentTitle documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/routing/integrations/react-router/#usedocumenttitle). If you need further customization or encounter any issues, you can also refer to the contributing document (https://refine.dev/docs/contributing/) for more advanced configurations. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- To hardcode the document title and make it blank to avoid the flash of the default text, you can directly set the document title in your main entry file (e.g., index.js or App.js) before any other components are rendered. This ensures that the title is set as early as possible. Here is an example of how you can do this:
// index.js or App.js

import React from "react";
import ReactDOM from "react-dom";
import App from "./App";

// Set the document title to blank
document.title = "";

ReactDOM.render(
<React.StrictMode>
<App />
</React.StrictMode>,
document.getElementById("root")
);
// index.js or App.js

import React from "react";
import ReactDOM from "react-dom";
import App from "./App";

// Set the document title to blank
document.title = "";

ReactDOM.render(
<React.StrictMode>
<App />
</React.StrictMode>,
document.getElementById("root")
);
By setting document.title = ""; at the very beginning, you ensure that the document title is blank before any other logic or asynchronous operations (like fetching from a database) take place. This approach should prevent the flash of the default text "Refine build your React-based..." and keep the title blank until your custom title is loaded and set. If you need further customization or encounter any issues, you can refer to the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs) for more advanced configurations. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

import React from "react"; import { createRoot } from "react-dom/client"; import App from "./App"; document.title = "aaa"; const container = document.getElementById("root") as HTMLElement; const root = createRoot(container); root.render( <React.StrictMode> <App /> </React.StrictMode> ); This doesnt work. Still defaults to the text @kapa.ai still doesnt work. still defaults to text. import React from "react"; import { createRoot } from "react-dom/client"; import App from "./App"; document.title = "aaa"; const container = document.getElementById("root") as HTMLElement; const root = createRoot(container); root.render( <React.StrictMode> <App /> </React.StrictMode> );

One moment! :books: ---------------------- To ensure that the default document title "Refine build your React-based..." does not flash before your custom title is set, you can take the following steps: 1. Remove the <DocumentTitleHandler /> component: Ensure that this component is not included in your <Refine> component, as it might override your custom title. This is based on the information from the GitHub issue (https://github.com/refinedev/refine/issues/4793). 2. Set the document title early: Set the document title as early as possible in your main entry file. Here is an example of how you can do this:

import React from "react";
import { createRoot } from "react-dom/client";
import App from "./App";

const container = document.getElementById("root") as HTMLElement;
const root = createRoot(container);

root.render(
<React.StrictMode>
<App />
</React.StrictMode>
);
// index.js or App.js

import React from "react";

document.title = "";

const container = document.getElementById("root") as HTMLElement;
const root = createRoot(container);

root.render(
<React.StrictMode>
<App />
</React.StrictMode>
);
3. Ensure no conflicting title settings: Make sure that no other part of your application is setting the document title to the default text. This includes checking your <Refine> component configuration. If you are using the useDocumentTitle hook or any other method to set the title dynamically, ensure it is set correctly after your data is loaded. For more detailed information, you can refer to the useDocumentTitle documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/routing/integrations/react-router/#usedocumenttitle).

Remove the <DocumentTitleHandler /> component: Ensure that this component is not included in your <Refine> component, as it might override your custom title. This is based on the information from the GitHub issue (https://github.com/refinedev/refine/issues/2810). 2. Set the document title early: Set the document title as early as possible in your main entry file. Here is an example of how you can do this:
// index.js or App.js

import React from "react";
import { createRoot } from "react-dom/client";
import App from "./App";

// Set the document title to blank or your desired initial title
document.title = "";

const container = document.getElementById("root") as HTMLElement;
const root = createRoot(container);

const PostList = () => {
useDocumentTitle("Posts | Refine");

return <List>{/* ... */}</List>;
};
import { useDocumentTitle } from "@refinedev/react-router-v6";

const PostList = () => {
useDocumentTitle("Posts | Refine");

return <List>{/* ... */}</List>;
};
If you are using Next.js, note that the useDocumentTitle hook does not support SSR and will only set the document title on the client side. Here is an example from the Next.js documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/routing/integrations/next-js/#usedocumenttitle):
import { useDocumentTitle } from "@refinedev/nextjs-router/pages";
const PostList = () => {
useDocumentTitle("Posts | Refine");

return <List>{/* ... */}</List>;
};
import { useDocumentTitle } from "@refinedev/nextjs-router/pages";
const PostList = () => {
useDocumentTitle("Posts | Refine");

return <List>{/* ... */}</List>;
};
By following these steps, you should be able to prevent the flash of the default text and set your custom document title effectively. If the issue persists, you might want to review the contributing document (https://refine.dev/docs/contributing/) for more advanced configurations and troubleshooting steps. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
