I am having trouble renaming the Page header on each page on my site. I want to standardise these to the site name but every time I click on them to edit this I am asked to temporarily allow scripting (which I do) but then the prompt disappears and takes me to just one same site page. I change pages, click again but as soon as I allow scripting the box closes and takes back to this page, Help please!!

Hi Andrew,

These are the steps for changing your page name:

1. Click on "Edit Menu".
2. Click on the blue text next to name of the page you would like to edit.
3. Edit the display and hover text and click on "OK"

or

1. Click on the "Site Manager" tab.
2. Click on "Rename".
3. If you choose this option, remember that you would need to change any links that you've added to your site that link to this particular page.

Are you using IE? You probably need to change your settings to allow pop ups or scripting. Can you try this please.

Thanks for the reply, its not the menu name that has the problem its the page Header so option 1 isnt appropriate thanks all the same.

Option 2 changes the site name successfully but it still doesnt fix the problem of page titles not being changeable.

Where in IE8 do I permanently allow scripting so I dont get prompted? It appears I am always returned to the index page after accepting the temporary script prompt and then the whole change page, click header, allow scripting cycle begins again, All help very appreciated

My apologies, you can change the name of your page header using these steps:

1. Click on the text and a dialog box will open
2. Delete the text
3. Enter in the text you want to appear
4. Click OK

or

1. Click on the Properties Tab on the Content Sidebar
2. Scroll down to Page Heading
3. Delete the text
