Page title not displaying and refresh issue.

I getting ready to post update one of my clients website hosted on plus.net... I have an issue in that the page title is not being displayed, its replaced by the domain name which intern means when you refresh a page it goes back to the home page.

Any ideas?
TIA

Re: Page title not displaying and refresh issue.

i am not an expert on Frames which tend to give that result.
The problem I think is that you opening the other pages in a frame on the original site so a refresh will do exactly as you are seeing because the browser only sees it as the host page.
There is probably a way round this and I am sure that someone will be able to assist
Just to add - all the pages have this identical line <frame src="http://www.gtbunning.plus.com/"> or this <frame src="http://www.gtbunning.plus.com/dev">
with no differentiation when you are on a different page of the Plusnet site

Re: Page title not displaying and refresh issue.

Think about it www.gtbunning.co.uk to the root hosted on plus.net so why should this not display the page title?
I'm more on the graphic design side myself Smiley
Thanks again for your time!
Off to my meeting now.

Re: Page title not displaying and refresh issue.

The page title is taken from the html <title>gtbunning.co.uk</title> what ever you put there will appear in the top left of the browser is this what you are referring to?

Re: Page title not displaying and refresh issue.

Yes thats correct. I'm using ... <title>G.T. Bunning &amp; Sons Ltd :: Manufacturers of Spreaders, Tankers and Bowsers to the farming industry.</title> on the index page. Its shows up okay when I test locally but not when I post it on the web.

Re: Page title not displaying and refresh issue.

There's also the fact that what ever page you are on when you refresh the page it takes you back to the home page.
Thanks again

Re: Page title not displaying and refresh issue.

This is what is causing the title to be set to that
<title>gtbunning.co.uk</title>

and the reason why you page refreshes to the same one was answer by Jim

You'll need to ditch the frames to sort it.

Re: Page title not displaying and refresh issue.

This is a sample of the source the frameset tags indicate it's using frames.
<html>
<head>
<!-- url = http://www.gtbunning.plus.com/ -->
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"><title>gtbunning.co.uk</title></head>
<frameset rows="100%,*" border="0" framespacing="0" frameborder="0">
<frame src="http://www.gtbunning.plus.com/">
</frameset>
<noframes>
<body>
The website for gtbunning.co.uk can be found by clicking <a href="http://www.gtbunning.plus.com/">here</a>.

document.write(unescape("%3Cscript src='" + gaJsHost + "google-analytics.com/ga.js' type='text/javascript'%3E%3C/script%3E"));
</script>
<script type="text/javascript">

Re: Page title not displaying and refresh issue.

I know that I am a bit late your Domain www.gtbunning.co.uk is hosted by www.easily.co.uk you need to change the Name servers to:
ns1.force9.net
ns2.force9.net
See How to Transfer a Domain
The frame is hosted by www.easily.co.uk it is a redirect to: www.gtbunning.plus.com
So your new site is at: www.gtbunning.plus.com/dev/ ; I hope this helps.
P.S.
You need to put a alt tag behind the images with a description, to comply with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA)
