Hello cysax,

I have looked at your site by the link you have given. I can't see what you are meaning. It would be good if you can take a screen shot and demonstrate what you mean.

Maybe I have misunderstood what you mean by "site tab name"

I'm happy to help on this.

OK. Think I see what you are referring to. Your tab says Dacoscape? Your Page Title says Xeriscape.

This is a very unusual web -site as you have used a lot of MS word to opy & paste content. A word of caution here,. this process can cause problems as some of the code introduced by MS Word can actually jam your site. It's always worth pasting copied material into Notepad and then copyin from there into your page.This process will completely strip invalid code from the copied content.

The other thing that maybe you should consider is the copyright implications. It is so easy to step into this issue and be caught innocently. It is important to be confident that you have the rights to use material if it's produced by someone else. Unlawful use can be a reason for the DMCA to call for closure of a site.

To change the tab name:


Select the Edit Menu as shown above

Choose your page from the menu selctions that you wish to change the Tab on


Simply type the new tab name in the field as shown. OK and you're done.

Hi Cysax

To add to what Peter has shared (great tips for editing the menu and some good advice about copyright), you also need to edit your Window Title. My guess is that you renamed your site at some stage. When you do this your window title doesn't update automatically. You need to do this manually. To change your window title:

1) Click on the "Properties" tab in the sidebar on the right.
2) In the box marked "Window Title" type in your desired name
3) Update your site

The new title will then show in the browser tab/window.



Hope this helps. Get back to us if you have any further questions.

Hello Ruth

I second what Gop says. Please give us more details about the problem you're having. As this thread is very old and the subject may not be related to your problem, can I ask you to open up a new thread and label it as a problem? Thanks.
