Hi!
If you mean the bar above the menu bar, then that will display whatever you put in as the site name. You can find this in Site>Global configuration>Site and it's in the 'Site name' box.

I hope I understood what you wanted correctly!
Regards,
Joe

It shows in the Admin section.
For example, want to remove the title bar for this site. www.reshaa2011.org . To its normal name, but have not yet seen the place.
Need help.

Forgive me, but I'm still not sure what you're trying to change. Is it the 'Infuse' bit in the title of the page?

Hi Emma,
there are two places you can look for this. The first is to make sure that the name of the site in 'Global Configuration' is correct. It should say RESHAA 2011. The second is to look at your main menu items. You should have one menu item which is the default menu (usually has a star next to it). Check the name of that menu item, make sure it also says RESHAA 2011. Next, open that menu item, and make sure that the Page Title is set to RESHAA 2011.

This should work ok, I think!
Regards,
Joe

Goto Menu - Then Main Menu, by the right, check the parameters and change the name there. It will work for you.

Go to the Menu Manager and select the Home Menu, or the menu that shows the page title you want to change and choose the option I have on the far right side, Page display Options, and play with the settings there.

See my screen shot.

Follow these steps to change the title:
1.Open the Menus and click on the default menu (the one with an asterisk).
2.Find and click the default menu item (the one with the yellow star).
3.Select the Parameter tab and enter your title in the Page Title box.

As you can imagine, for each page you can define a new Page Title by editing a menu item on that page. If the Page Title field, leave it blank, Joomla Page Title will announce the title of item.
