SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have been creating different views on a list and have noticed that the page title is always the list name regardless of the view that was selected. Is it possible to change the title of Page to that of the view that was selected?

I'm sure this can be done with jQuery. The syntax is going to vary depending on the version and edition of SharePoint you are using. –  Rob Wilson Aug 17 '10 at 0:21

You can do this by modifying the .ASPX page for the view using SharePoint Designer. Just change the contents inside the tags shown below:

<asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderPageTitle" runat="server">
    Whatever you want to be displayed in the Browser titlebar
<asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleArea" runat="server">
    Whatever you want as the title shown on the page

I take it we're talking about 2007, because in SharePoint 2010 the name of the view is actually reflected in the page title be default. Good answer. –  Rob Wilson Aug 17 '10 at 5:05
Even in Sharepoint 2010 it works. Thanks. –  user2559 Mar 4 '11 at 10:20
