    Hey everyone!!

    How can I change the name that appears in the web browser tab.

    Mine currently reads (Product). I want to change this title.

    Just to be clear on what I’m asking, I know how to change the page title in my website. But when you click on the page, a name appears on the top of every web browser (Safari, Internet Explore, Etc.). And even though I renamed my page, the web browser tab name is still (product). Can anyone show me how to change that name.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Here is a link to the specific page I’m asking about:

    http://www.realdealgraphics.com/graphic-tee-shirts/

    That’s something you need to discuss with WooThemes (your theme’s vendors).

    Since that is the only one that does not match your menu button, I would guess you had first named that page “Products” and then later changed its title but not its slug.

    You are correct! The page was first named “Products” then changed. I also changed the permalink, but how do I change the slug?

    I might not have used the correct term there, but there is an Edit button for the page’s permalink at the top of the Page Editor.

    Yes. I changed the permalink and the page title at the same time, but the web browser name remained the same. I really appreciate your advice Leejosepho.

    Does anyone else have any Idea how to change the name that appears in the web browser tab?

    Again here is a link to the specific page I’m asking about:

    http://www.realdealgraphics.com/graphic-tee-shirts/

    I want to change the web browser name from “products” to the name of the page which is “Graphic Tee Shirts”.

    Are you looking in Firefox, and are you checking with more than one browser? There have been times I have had to use History > Clear Recent History and even delete a Bookmark or two to get Firefox back to “square one”.

    Thank you Leejosepho.

    I really appreciate you taking the time to post your advice.

    The problem still stands for anyone who can find a solution. If I find it on my own, I will post for anyone having a similar problem.

    Since you’re already using Yoast, edit the post and you will find an option underneath the post editor where you could add a custom title.

    Hello ronangelo,

    Thank you for taking the time to post your suggestion.

    I am using Yoast, but I’m not sure what you mean by “edit the post”. If you are referring to “edit the page” I have already done so. I do not see a custom title editor.

    Look for the area underneath the editor that says “WordPress SEO by Yoast”
    If it is missing, click “Screen Options” on the top right corner then check the Yoast checkbox. A new section should appear under the post editor. Enter your title on the “SEO Title” textbox.

    Yes, and yesterday I noticed a place near the bottom of the WordPress editor where you should be able to edit the slug, if that is the problem.

    Hey Guys!

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    I Know why the page is still named “products”. It’s because I am using Woo Commerce. I went to the Woo Commerce settings and changed my “Shop Base Page”. Which ever page I select as the shop base page, Woo Commerce changes the title to “Products”. When the page is no longer the shop base page, the page name is what I desire.

    The problem is in Woo Commerce and I have been digging around trying to find a way to change this. If you guys have any suggestions please post them.

    Thank you both once again for all your help!!

    So you didn’t try the suggestion above?

    Yes I did. Woo Commerce seems to be overwriting everything.
