How to tailor a title

In many cases you need the section name to be something specific because that name is displayed in your navigation. However, you may want your title to be different than the name of the section.

T4 has a way to create a title that is separate from the section name.

On the General Section Details page under Advanced settings, there is a field called Page Title.

 The page title field is located in the advanced settings area of a section

Type the new title into that field and save changes.
