Retrieve the current post title – WordPress

Now I discuss how to retrieve or fetch the current post title in wordpress. We can display the title in wordpress pages or we can put it on the banner images with heading.

In wordpress, many inbuilt functions are provided for different operations. For fetch the current post title, the wordpress support get_the_title(), the_title(), get_the_title_rss() inbuilt functions provided.

get_the_title(): Used for get the current post title.

the_title(); Used for get current post title

get_the_title_rss():Used for get the current post title. This is mainly used , if we specify the html tag like sub,sup etc in wordpress post or page title.
The get_the_title() and the_title() fetch whatever we enter in title. But we use the get_the_title_rss() the html tag convert and returns the correct output.
