Set Custom Titles in Magento

To set a custome or forced title in Magento you need to first edit the head.phtml file from this:

<title>< ?php echo $this->getTitle() ?></title>

to this:

<title>
< ?php echo ($this->getForcedTitle()) ? Mage::getStoreConfig('design/head/title_prefix').' '.$this->getForcedTitle().' '.Mage::getStoreConfig('design/head/title_suffix') : $this->getTitle() ?>
</title>

and then in the various layout xml files add this in the relevant sections:

<reference name="head">
<action method="setForcedTitle"><title>Account Dashboard</title></action>
</reference>
