Wish to see a specific feature/change in future releases? Feel free to post it here, and if it gets enough "likes", we'd definitely include it in future releases!

Can we please have an option in the Admin system where we can set the application title (the text next to the house icon)?

Ah, I see. You know, I saw that before and was thinking "I don't want the db name to be the same as the app title." Probably because of that "new_db" default value, which makes it seem like it changes the db name (since the rest of that panel deals with tables and fields.)

Might it be useful to change that default to "app_title"?

Currently, the application title is derived from the database name. But it's
not appropriate in some cases:

- if the application is an acronym (e.g. OGCS) capitalization is not kept ==>
Ogcs
- it's not possible to use accented characters (éèà...), which is
problematic in other languages than English.

Maybe, a way to customize it (for example through a value in $GLOBALS) or through the interface would be relevant.

Thanks for the feedback. We'll add a separate 'App title' box for projects in future releases to handle all these cases.
