    Hi Mart

     

    When viewing the page in the Site Builder, there is a panel on the right hand side that lets you choose a page title:

    This is what appears in the browser tab when a visitor views the page.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Nick,

     

    Of course thx for your effort to support me.

    In a sec i really thought you hit it. but there is a but...

    I changed the page name while viewing at the proper page towards: Nieuws.  And yes, it works.
    Problem however is that now somehow ALL my pages are called NIEUWS.

    So i tried to rename the other pages without succes. I can fill in 1 name, indifferent on what page i am, all pagenames will be renamed.  It sounds absurd, but it is what i encounter.

    Hi Mart

    That is odd - I've just noticed that it's the same on my own site. This might be worth raising directly with Photoshelter as it looks like a bug.

    Hi Nick, will do.

    BTW; beside that ill raise a support Q, i found also the following (what makes it even more odd)

    When going to the "NAVIGATION SETTINGS" there is another field to name the page. (image 1 and 2)

    On this navigation level all page names are correct.

    High Nick,

    As said i reported this issue and the Photoshelter helpdesk was very fast with a reply.

    I think it is helpfull and also i see no problem with sharing the respons i received.
    So here is the quote i got by mail, hope it is also enough informative for you and others:

    Hello Martin,

    Sorry for any confusion here. You can edit the page title and meta description for the custom page in the Site Builder.  When you click on the page name in your Navigation settings, you will see "Page Title" and "Meta Description":

    ​​

    What you have noticed is that the custom pages share the same information. Because of the platform on which our responsive templates were built, the meta description and page titles are shared across any custom pages you create. This limitation is unfortunately something that was built into the platform that allows you to have an unlimited amount of custom pages. This may not always be the case with custom pages, but for now, there is no workaround. However, I've added your account to the list of users requesting this functionality, as I do know that having individual meta descriptions and page titles for each of your custom pages is crucial to your SEO. 

    That being said, just so you are aware, our Product team is planning to release SEO improvements over the next 30 days, and they will try to fit this into those updates. Because it would require a complete rebuild of the way custom pages are created in all of our templates, it may take longer than this initial stretch of time, but it is high on the list of priorities for increasing the SEO potential of our members' sites. 

    For now, we suggest to keep the descriptions general and have them include information about all of the custom pages that you have. Should we decide to make any changes to that functionality, we'll be sure to let our users know. Grover, our General Manager, will be releasing the roadmap by the end of the month, so look out for that email!

    If you have any other questions like this, it is best to reach out to us at support since we do not reply to inquiries in the community forum directly.

    Cheers,
    Jelan
