Hi folks, first time poster so please be gentle. After a few hitches, I got SilverStripe up and running on Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope. I'm working on my first page now, but I notice that the top portion of the page is still calling the page "yoursite." I've chosen a different page name under Site Content, Home -> Main, Page name. Is there someplace else I can change this that I'm just not seeing? Thanks.

You have to update the template file (both in the <title> tag and the <h1> tag in - themes/blackcandy/templates/

Ah, thank you! As a matter of best practices, do people usually make a working copy of the theme directories to work from and point their site at that copy?

Yea when I started I just copied blackcandy to blackcandycopy then used it as a base to change and see what happens. Now when i create new sites I create any pages first in static html then slice it up to match the structure of the themes files. But yea there isn't any 'correct' way to do it just whatever works for you.

Good luck :)
