Hi Foster,

If it's for a static page you've created (eg, "page webservers Web 
Servers" in hosts.cfg), the template for this is located in the web 
directory as "stdnormal_header". A little-known feature that probably 
needs to be documented better in 
https://www.xymon.com/help/manpages/man5/xymonweb.5.html is that all 
sub-pages can have overrides for templates specific to them, and 
sub-parent overrides are walked back hierarchically.  So the page 
$XYMONROOT/test/apple/banana/cherry/ will have its header from the first 
file xymongen finds in:
3926 2015-11-18 11:51:29.811710 Trying header/footer file 
3926 2015-11-18 11:51:29.811718 Trying header/footer file 
3926 2015-11-18 11:51:29.811723 Trying header/footer file 
3926 2015-11-18 11:51:29.811728 Trying header/footer file 
3926 2015-11-18 11:51:29.811733 Trying header/footer file 

Just copy the existing template file to the new name, then edit the 
TITLE tag to however you'd like it to be set up.
