Hi Eric,

Thanks for releasing and maintaining SHFB; it has been used to build the documentation for the AWS SDK for .NET in conjunction with the Hana stylesheet.

I was wondering how I could add the product's name (AWS SDK for .NET) to the title of every page generated as part of the product's documentation. For example, this page:, has the title, "ListObjects method"; I want the title to be, "ListObjects method - (AWS SDK for .NET)".

The product's name is "AWS SDK for .NET Documentation"; I am also fine with this being appended to the current title instead of the shorter "AWS SDK for .NET".

To get the title to appear, you've have to modify the Sandcastle XSL transformation files.  You'd need to track down where it generates the title section and add a bit that also writes out an '<include item="productTitle" />' element to get it to pull the title value in from the shared content resource file.

Hey Eric,

Thanks for the quick response. I tried to edit a few xsl files that contained the tags titleDecorated, titlePlain, etc to no avail. I'll keep trying to get this done. Too bad Sandcastle documentation is so threadbare.
