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';
}

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.
