Sharepoint Title Bar on Internet Explorer Can't Change
Currently, my Sharepoint title on the IE title bar reads "Pages - Default". I've tried changing the Title under Site Settings > Title, Description, and Icon to no avail. I've also tried Editing the page, and going to Page Settings and changing the Title there to no avail. Anyone have any ideas to changing the title bar so IE will display what I put in the Title within Sharepoint?

Hi Sangha, I went to where you suggested and the Title in there is set to what I want it to be like the other places. However, IE is still picking up "Pages - Default". The name of this page is Default.aspx. Any other suggestions? Is there something that can be changed within Sharepoint Developer?

Hi, You should be able change it as Sangha suggested. Please check if the page is check in as major version and get published. If this is not helpful, could you please let me know more information? 1. What is your SharePoint production version and edition? 2. What is the site template? 3. If it is a publishing site, could you please open the corresponding publishing layout page and see if it has been customized? -lambertSincerely, Lambert Qin Posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights.

Hi Lambert, I am using MOSS 2007 Enterprise. The template I used is Collaboration Portal (for our Intranet site). What I did do is change the Page Layout in Page settings. I changed it from the default to (Welcome Page) Blank Web Part Page. Thanks.

Hi, I checked the code of the (Welcome Page) Blank Web Part Page (_catalogs\masterpage\BlankWebPartPage.aspx) in SharePoint Designer. I found that the page title area was not the same with other publishing layout. This is the causes your issue. Here is the original code block for your information. <asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderPageTitle" runat="server"> <SharePointWebControls:ListProperty Property="Title" runat="server"/> - <SharePointWebControls:ListItemProperty Property="BaseName" MaxLength=40 runat="server"/> </asp:Content> You could use the below code sample or similar code to achieve your goal. (Do not forget to check in and publish the page so that everyone will see the changes.) <asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderPageTitle" runat="server"> <SharePointWebControls:ListItemProperty Property="Title" runat="server"/> </asp:Content> Hope the information can be helpful. -lambertSincerely, Lambert Qin Posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights.

I just noticed that the title bar reverts back to "Pages - Default" when I'm logged in as a standard user with just read rights. The title bar reads fine when I'm logged in (administrator). Any suggestions?

Hi, This is because the publishing layout page need to be published as major version and approved by approvers before showed to end users. You could follow the steps: 1. Right click the BlankWebPartPage.aspx in SharePoint Designer. 2. Choose Check In. in the check in window, choose Publish a major version and click OK. 3. A dialog window should be opened to ask content approval. Click Yes to navigate to the approval page (_catalogs/masterpage/Forms/my-sub.aspx). 4. Click Approve/Reject menu item on the ECB menu of BlankWebPartPage. 5. Choose Approved and click OK. Hope the information can be helpful. -lambertSincerely, Lambert Qin Posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights.
