Can it be made so that one can change the title and description tags of the index.rss file. I run a blog using yola and when aggregators, trackers, and followers get my rss feed it pulls the title as "index" which is quite inconvenient and embarrassing. I know the rss generator just pulls the pages title I know the home page's title cannot be changed to anything but index and since my blog IS the home page and cannot be anywhere else I should be able to changed the title in the RSS just like I am able to change the title of my website. Here is my site:

Hello Aleksey,

Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the RSS title/description fields. We have logged this. However, it has been decided that our blogging platform is currently a low priority for us. While we hope to fix these bugs some time in the future, we do not have plans to do so in the short to medium term future.

So, unfortunately the issue you are experiencing will stay as is for an indefinite period of time. I am really sorry that I don't have better news on this, and I do understand if you are disappointed, but I hope you will be able to work with it the way it is.

Yola makes it possible for you to include a basic blog page with your website, should you wish to do so. However, if your main interest is in blogging and if you require advanced blogging features, your needs would be better served by blogging specialists such as Wordpress or Blogger.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
