Mobile theme and wrong title tag

Hello to everyone. Since google changed to mobile indexing first I am facing the following issue:

I have the mobile theme enabled for old/new browsers and apparently the default VB4 mobile theme has the same <title></title> tag for every single of our threads. So now, since google crawls mainly the mobile theme, our individual thread SEO has gone down the drain.

Why does the VB4 default mobile theme display the same title tag for every single thread, and how can we correct this? All other non-mobile themes, are perfectly fine.

Thanks!

If you look at the SHOWTHREAD template of the mobile style, there should be something like this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

replace that with the following: (this is used in regular styles)

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And then the thread title should show up properly for each thread.

That seems to have worked, thank you so much Dave!

Update: seems to have worked only for thread titles. How do we do the same for forum category and sub-forum titles? Thanks!

If you look at the template of those pages and copy the <title> line to the mobile template then it should fix that as well. (forumdisplay template)
