Can't change webpage name (title) in browser tab

Hi all, I have a [Github website]( that I made using RStudio and RMarkdown. Bought the domain from google.

I am trying to change the the title/name of each page as it appears in the browser tabs. For example, on the Homepage (index), the tab says ``, and when you're on the research page it says ``.

I've tried opening up `index.html` file and changing what's in between the `<title></title>` tags, but once I Build Website in RStudio, it automatically reverts to what it was before. Any thoughts?

Re: Can't change webpage name (title) in browser tab

Looking at the examples via Rstudio gallery, you want to put the title in the header of your .Rmd file. E.g. this line:


title: rCharts NYT Interactive Home Price

goes in the .rmd file between the two lines of "---".  [The line above taken from sample rmd]
