As far as I can tell I'm using it correctly, but it doesn't do anything.

eg:

class CoursePage extends Page {
...	

	function getCMSFields() {
		$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
		$fields->renameField('Content', 'Other');
		return $fields;
	}

}

My 'Content' tab should now have the label 'Other', correct?

Okay maybe it is working, but I still don't understand how to use it.

The code posted above will change the label above the TinyMCE editor.

What I want to do is rename a tab.

Is it correct that I should just need to call $fields->renameField('Root.Content.Main', 'Root.Content.OtherName'); ?

Is it even possible to rename tabs?

Have I got the names wrong? Please help! :-)

I guess that it's a no for being able to rename tabs then?

Ok, I figured it out. In ModelAdmin the code to rename 'Main' tab is:

                $main = $fields->fieldByName('Root')->fieldByName('Main');
		$main->setTitle('Other');

In Pages it would probably be something like:

                $main = $fields->fieldByName('Root')->fieldByName('Content')->fieldByName('Main');
		$main->setTitle('Other');

$fields->fieldByName('Root.Content.Main')->setTitle('Other');

Save yourself a bit of typing :)
