Editing Page Titles

Permalink 1 user found helpful
Hi, I'm new to Concrete 5 and building my own website. I am still working on the default they set up for me. Home, About, Blog and Search are my only pages so far. I am using the "Dreamy" layout. I wanted to edit the page title "Blog" to read "Gemini's Blog" - how can I do that? I can't figure it out, and will that affect anything down the road when I start writing the blog? Thanks!!

Hey ses604,

In order to change the displayed page title go to 'Properties' in the dashboard of your page in edit mode. There you can change the name of the current page.

The default title is the sitename::pagename, so on the page properties edit the page name to keep it in this format. Alternatively on the next tab of page properties edit the meta-title to give it whatever title you want.

I have an add-on in awaiting approval at the moment that simplifies managing the page heading, title, page description and metadata description. Keep an eye out for 'Magic Heading' later in the week.

Thanks for the quick responses! I managed to change the Blog name to "Gemini's Blog" and added a page called "Taurus Tips" - but of course in the process of adding the page, I blew away my search page, and search landed as a sub category inside Taurus Tips. For some reason, I think I am following the instructions intuitively, but maybe I'm not so intuitive. How can I add a page to the site navigation without it becoming a sub-page? Might need to know this for future reference. Thanks!!

Everything on the site is a sub page of the home page. New pages get created as a sub-page of the page you are viewing at the time of creating them.
If you get the location of a page wrong, you can drag/drop to where you want it in the dashboard sitemap (but not in the popup sitemap).

Thanks! I'll try again when I'm back on the site later. The first time I tried to create the new page, it appeared as a sub-page of Gemini's Blog, so I ended up deleting it, and I could also see by the path field where the page was landing on the site map. The second I time I tried to create it, it ended up as a sub-page of Search, so I tried the "move" function, but that did not work out for me either and I think that is how I ended up with Search inside the new page! jeesh...not the end of the world but I'll have to decide later if I want to keep Search there or create it back into it's own page on the navigation menu again.
