Yes, is the ternary operator(http://www.php.net/ternary)

It is as you wrote:
if (isset($pageTitle))
{
  echo $pageTitle;
}
else
{
  echo 'Some Content Site';
}

Open in new window

That notation is some sadist's idea of shortening his code.   Don't use it, all it does is complicate something that should be straightforward, and make code unreadable.
