Hi,

in the Administration Panel -> Menu Manager (Default Menu) choose the default marked menu item and have a look at the advanced options ;)

Cheers

Pete

Did anyone manage to find a solutions to this? When I go to my website the internet explorer tab shows "home". I would like to change this to "Free Independent Mortgage Advice". How do I do this?

Please help. It would be greatly appreciated.

Jason

1) Logging in the administration area.
2) Select the Menu Manager icon. This should take you to the Menu Manager page.
3) Look for the "Main Menu" (it is usually the first in the list) and select the icon in the "Menu Item(s)" column (third column). This should take you to the Main Menu manager page.
4) Select Home. This is going to take you to an editor page where you will be able to configure this menu item.
5) Expand the "Parameters (System)" tab located in the right column.
6) The first item: "Page Title" is what you want to change.

Try it and let me know.

Hi Ediaz

Thanks for the reply. I tried what you said but that only put the title that I typed in on the homepage. It still says "home" in the firefox/IE tab.

If you click on this you will see what I mean. http://www.mortgagesinhertfordshire.com

Any other ideas matey?? :)

I have installed SH404 and the SEO patch. I am trying to get my website seen as you will probably tell. :)

Thanks again for trying to help. Business is a bit crap at the moment due to the credit crunch so Im trying to boost it a bit

I am sorry to ask again, but is your version 1.5.1, 1.5.2, 1.5.3....? I need the last digit of the version to check if there was a bug related to your specific version.

I'm using Joomla! 1.5.8 and the solutions above do not work for me. Does anyone have a solution to replace the "Home" in the browser tab to the site name?

I found the solution!! I am using Joomla! 1.5.8 and sh404SEF. In the sh404SEF component, there is an area for Meta Tags. Click the "Home page Meta" button at the top and input the information that you want to display. The Title tag changes the "Home" to your site name in the browser tab.

I just noticed in the newest version (1.5.11) it now works correctly to change the Home tab. So if you don't want to install the sh404SEF component, do this: Go to Menus / Main Menu and click on the "Home" in the list. Then click on Parameters (System) and change the Page Title. Save.
