Been working with GeoServer for some time now. While working with the publishing tab of the layer, I noticed a problem. Every time that I set the default style with a single featured CSS style, the defined title doesn't show. For some clarification I've added some screenshots:

  • The first image shows the desired visualization. Notice the two titles in the legend
  • The second image shows the desired style but not the title, this always happens if a layer is only styled by one feature.

I would like to figure out a way to make my titles visual in all my layers, can anyone help me out?

This image shows the 'good' visualization.

This image shows the good style but not the title like the other image.

  • did you give your rule a title in the 2nd case?

  • Yes, /* @title Telfort-BT Ignite */. Same as any other title. Dec 22, 2016 at 15:38

you will have to add a second category with no data to allow geoserver show the legend title, for example in QGIS:Picture 1
