Setting a Title for the web gallery actually changes the Album name, and doesn't put a title into the Web Gallery display. 

Share Settings -> Title ____    
Whatever I put in here becomes the new name of the Album I'm sharing to the web.





As you see here. It doesn't put the title I entered into the Web Gallery. It changes the Album name...




This is the resulting web gallery title.




Which means. I can't avoid this, I have to Select the images carefully that I want to share to the Web, then put them into their own (new) Album, and when it gets a title in Settings, it wil change that album name.
Fine - except that it still doesn't set that album title to what I want. It stays as "Latest Images"

So... Hola - there's something wrong. I need to be able to set the Web Gallery page title, without changing the Album name.

For the interested... this is the link to the Experimental Web Gallery.

To recap.
The Album is called Experimental, in a Folder called Temporary.

I tried naming the WebGallery set something else - but no matter what, it changes the Album name and not the Web Gallery Title. Leaving it as 
Latest Images.

I hope someone is looking at this.

I just tested rachalmers and it is working as expected for me. 

On LrCC Desktop - change Title changes Album Name and Web updates to correct Album Name and correct Title
On LrCC Web - change Title changes Album and Desktop updates to correct Album name and correct Title.

Am I misunderstanding your issue or is your system working differently?

Sorry, I think you misunderstand me....

1. I don’t want to change the CC Album name if I’m creating a web gallery.

2. Regardless, the Gallery Title that appears on the web page should at least be the Album name, if that’s the way it works, but it’s not. The web page title is “Latest Images” , which is about banal as you can get.
I mean, what’s the point of the interface asking for a title, if it doesn’t use it other than to change the Album name in CC.

I would have thought that asking for a Title would be asking for a web gallery page title. And changing Latest Images to that name.

Hi guys, assuming I can attach a video, here's a short screen capture of what's happening. Hope this makes it clearer.
