Get Page Title in template

I am looking to create a template that automatically pulls the page title and includes it in the content. Is there a variable/macro/shortcut that allows us to automatically pull the page title and include it in the content of the page?

There are multiple ways to do that including at least:

  1. Write a simple user macro
  2. Run Plugin - {run-now}$page_title{run-now}
  3. Reporting Plugin

Thanks for the reply.

I made a simple user macro that worked like a charm:

## @noparams


I used the above in my macro and I got the page title.

Now how can I get the first letter in a page title since my pages are named as follows: AF | Afghanistan

I only want to get AF?

It looks like Bob was able to point you at the 100% correct solution. I am answering here just to let people know that we have an outstanding feature request for this functionality.

If anyone is interested in getting this feature rolled into the product itself please visit that issue and vote for it in the upper right hand corner. I am attaching this post to the ticket to further increase it's visibility.

Your solution is a great one. Again I am just adding this for informational purposes.

It looks like this was not implemented. From an en-user POV, this really should be a requirement for allowing people to create custom templates. After all, if we are creating a custom template, the whole point is to be consistent.  Having to create a page title each time we use a custom template is counter-intuitive and very annoying. Any updates?
