How to Change Your Page Titles

So you really want to update the name of your page. It's the H1 on the page and it also is in your menu navigation at the top of your site. Well how the heck are you supposed to acheive that? You need to change it in two places? Well, let us show you. It's actually quite easy!

Navigate to the page who's title you'd like to update:

As an example, this page is named -

"Lawn Problem Solver"

Click on "Editor"

Lawn Problem Solver

Pull out the left menu area

Click on the little black/white tab thing on the left [scientific, right?!]

Pull out the left menu area

Click "Page Information"

Click "Page Information"

Here are your titles to edit

Navigation Title is the title of the navigation  - this is what will show up on your menu at the top [where Learn is now, if you're on this page, for instance]

Browser Title is the title of the H1 title and the Icon at the top next to the favicon.

And they don't have to be the same [ see below...this customer has two different titles, fancy!]

Here are your titles to edit

See how this looks

Click "SAVE" underneath Page Layout

It is imperative that you use this SAVE and not the "SAVE PAGE." They are two different types of save buttons.

Click "SAVE" underneath Page Layout
This won't change the actual hyperlink of your page. So if you go from say having it be "Origami" to "Paper Crafts" it will change the appearance of the titles, but not the hyperlink. The hyperlink would still be "/origami." This is something we'll have to do for you on the backend. And there's a reason! We just don't want to go all willy nilly and change that hyperlink, because you may have links and things to it on your site, and then they'll break. Plus! Your page might be indexed by Google, so changing the hyperlink might hurt it. So just be careful, mmkay!
And let us know if you have any questions by emailing We're here for ya!
