Title bar. . .

by Coryphaeus / October 6, 2004 12:00 AM PDT

In the old days, the title bar at the top of my browser would tell what forum I was in (it tells where I am on almost every other site I visit). Now it just says Community directory or some such. Is there any way to get the title of the forum into the title bar?

Then again, maybe it's just me. If so, can I change it?

" tape paper strip wuth names and every time you move replace "

My supply of white-out ran out so this method works better.

Hmm......Wayne said the "Title Bar" which is not the Address Box

Title Bar = Blue Bar at the Top above the Menu Bar

Then the Tool Bar which consist of:
Menu Bar = File, Edit, View, etc.
Button Bar = Back, Forward, Stop...etc
Address Box = URL (Universal Resource Link) which in Mozilla Firefox may also be in with the Button Bar.

Links Bar

It's in the HTML coding....<Title></Title>...that would have to be changed for each page.

I asked about this ages ago with no answer.

Wayne,

Does my post to Mark above do anything for you? Are you talking about the Title above the Tools Bar? That states CNet Help Reviews - and the browser. or CNet Reviews - and the browser.
Yes, that does not give the forum title you are in, but is not needed IMO as the title is given when the forum comes up.

JR, Wayne Is Referring To ....

....the blue bar at the "Title Bar" at the very top of your browser screen which only indicates "CNET Help.com-- Community directory". The only time I find it diffcult is when I need to open a specific browser window when multiple browser windows are open and minimized. They all say the same exact thing and therefore, unless you can remember which one goes where, it is extremely difficult to determine which forum goes to which window. Clear as mud??

As mentioned previously, this issue has been discussed and unfortunately hasn't been fixed yet.

Hope this helps.

have 10-15 windows open and never gave it a thought as being a hindrance. Can see it would be helpful to busy people with shortage of time.

I now change my opinion and believe it would beneficial .

Thanks. Before, when I clicked Favorites, and the Favorites list pops up it hid the forum page. But not now. Thanks for putting the forum page in the title bar. Now I can see where I am and where I can go next.
