How to access only the component heading/title in a Joomla! 1.5template when building a new template and the component heading needs to be in a strategic place on the template.
Insert the following code where you need to have the component heading displayed on the template.
//Open PHP tag
//First we instantiate the document object, to get all document details.
$document =& JFactory::getDocument();
//Now we echo the component heading by echoing the getTitle() method of the getDocument class
//Closing PHP tag
NOTE: This has been tested in Joomla! 1.5.10. I don’t think this is the right method to do this, only use this if absolutely neccesary.
