When multiple pages are opened in any browser they all read the index page name uss tusk. I've given each page a title, how can I name all the pages to show the content of that page?

Don't use frames. The browser is showing the title of the parent frame. Frames are outdated, you'd be better off creating an individual page for each.

Thank you, I didn't know I had used frames. Is there a tutorial available online that demonstrates how I can change my entire site pages from frames to individual pages?

Not really any one tutorial I'm afraid. These are a good set of web design tutorials for beginners though; http://htmldog.com/

Next questions, since I wasn't aware that my site had or used frames, how did you know I had them? Are what you call frames called something else?

View >> Source on the web browser. Example of your page code;

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"

"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

<html>



<head>

<title>uss tusk </title>

<META name="description" content="submarine"><META name="keywords" content="submarine">

</head>

<frameset rows="100%,*" border="0">

<frame src="http://www.donparker.us/usstusk" frameborder="0" />

<frame frameborder="0" noresize />

</frameset>

You see where it says 'frameset', that is showing a page within a page. Every page you visit on your website has the same head tags and title and then it displays the referenced page below that so, all your pages have the same title :)

Are what you call frames called something else?

Errrmmm, no. Deffo called frames :wink:

Again, thanks. In over my head, can't even find my current index page in dreamweaver now to try to remove those frames. As long as I can update my crew data pages, add crew photos and such everything will be fine. I'll (again) pretend to know what I'm doing at next months reunion. lol

Yeah, I'd leave it alone for now and perhaps work on some separate pages in a testing folder to learn a bit more. Other than the title, the site does the job. And, if you go hacking it about now, you might just break it all.
