Default Can user change page 1 title?

Can the user set (or edit) the Page 1 title on their own GAR, or is that only possible on second and subsequent pages with the BREAK bbcode?

If the answer is they can't set or change it, I guess Page 1 will always have the default title from the TOC module in that particular GAR?

Apologies if this has been asked and answered already, I did do a search but couldn't find a definitive answer.

Another observation about Page 1 titles ... although the default for the specific module shows up in the TOC control, the actual page title (at the top left of the article itself) always says Page 1, no matter what the page 1 default is set to.

Is this a Feature or a Bug?

I'd kind of like them to say the same thing.

You can set the first page to say something else by editing the module settings in your module set.

HTHs!

Yup, I get that. Which is why I said:

So I suppose what I'm asking for is a feature request ... can we have a way for the author to specify the first page title, over-riding the module set default?

Also, as per my follow on this thread, how about fixing it so that the title in the top left of the first page matches the TOC title?

Just little things, but as someone once said ... God is in the details.

If you can't provide a method for allowing the user to specify a Page One title, how about an option on the module settings whereby you can either specify the default Page One title, or make it "Same as article title"?

I'd much prefer that the user be able to specify their own page one title, but if that isn't possible, the "Same as article titlle" option would help.

Thanks for considering,
