ion-view title not appearing

I haven’t been blogging much recently because I intended this blog to be all about Ionic and for the last month or so I’ve been working on a contract doing some Ionic 1 development (an interesting experience having been working with Ionic 2 for 8 months or so).

Anyway, my Ionic 1 app was driving me crazy for a couple of hours yesterday as I found that my view title was not displaying correctly.  I had this in my templates:


<ion-view title=" {{ categoryName }}">

What I needed was this (ion-nav-title) :
    <ion-nav-title>{{ categoryName }}</ion-nav-title>


The former works some of the time but sometimes fails.  The latter method seems to work all of the time.

I expect this is a well known thing but in case someone has the same problem and comes looking, I thought I’d post the solution.
