A title for the main article and another on for the excerpt ... how?

I did asked the same question years ago but maybe there is a new and better way to do it. Is there? Core, plugin?

A custom field would be my first choice.

Or you could add the title within the excerpt if it makes sense to your brief.

Something like

h2. Excerpt title

Excerpt here

That’s a nice one Yiannis … :)

For now a custom field it will be. Thanks to you both.

<txp:if_custom_field name="Alt_Article_Title">
<h1 itemprop="name"><txp:custom_field name="Alt_Article_Title" /></h1>
<txp:else />
<h1 itemprop="name"><txp:title /></h1>
</txp:if_custom_field>

Seconded. I’ve recently started to cram more than one thing into custom fields and then extract the information using variable. I’m sure I can use yield for some of this, too.

This may be useful: get the value of a custom field in a variable
