Ability to Edit Page Titles for Individual Blog Posts

I've noticed that one cannot edit the page title for individual blog posts which is a disservice to searchers. It appears that it defaults to the name of the overall blog and not the individual blog post.

Am I wrong? It would be a great improvement to blog to edit the page titles for each blog. I've never heard of a blog post otherwise except here.

        OK thanks I will keep an eye on it.

        It would be great if social sharing mechanisms within Wild Apricot could get some real attention, make them more integrated and streamlined. Getting this titling bug ironed out would be a good step in that direction.

        From the other posts I've seen on the forum I'm sure this is on your to do list. Thanks for the quick response.

        Hi Evgeny,

        This would help us out a lot with our social posting from Wild Apricot (titling page from Blog post Name). Has this been achieved? I am looking around in settings but have not found if there is a way to choose this yet.

        Thanks for your work, it is great to see this site solidly developing.

        I want to repeat Dmitri's question:

        "What if we change blog post page title to post titles, would this address the issue for the most part?"

        I think that in most cases this would be more than enough - and this is much easier to implement that create infrastructure to setup custom URL for each blog post.

        I am getting more active with my blog. I want the basic functionality of creating the title of the page for each of my specific blog posts. I've never heard of NOT being able to do so on other blogs I have.

        This thread never answered the question the best I can tell.

        How do I change the title of my page of specific blog posts???

        I do not see the option when I edit the blog.

        Definatley needs to be done, when i use http://www.wibiya.com/ Facebook Like function it simply names it Site Name - Page Name(blog Name) not post name, so it doesnt really describe it. Also the description is the main site description not the blog description. So you look like your posting main page instead of a blog posting .

        When viewing Blog Posts can it be

        Website Title - *Page Title(blog title)* - Blog Post Title

        Page Description - 250char of Blog Post.

        You can manually do this but it shoudl be an option for that blog to change the page title to the add blog post title.

        Oops. I think this belongs in wishlist probably unless one really can edit the page titles of blog posts.
