The <title> tag in pages for post edit is Edit Post < Site name — WordPress. I want to change it to Edit Post < Site name – The title of the post in editing. Is this possible? Where can I locate the header of this page? Apparently it cannot be in the theme.

Add this code instead on your functions.php, this will change the post and product title to the post or product that is being edit:

add_filter('admin_title', 'my_admin_title', 10, 2);
function my_admin_title($admin_title, $title)
        global $post, $action;
        if ( isset($post->post_title) and $action == 'edit' ){
        return 'Edit < '.$post->post_title.' - '.get_bloginfo('name');
        } else {
            return $title .' - ' .get_bloginfo('name');
  • This is perfect. Do you know why the code doesn't work when put it in the child theme?
