    Default Add Designer to HTML Title

    I've been seeing a lot of gig posters ending up on picture feeds, most notably fffound. They tend to scrape the TITLE (ie. the part that appears in the title bar of your web browser) as well and I see that GP currently provides the band names there when viewing a poster.

    It would be cool if the designer's name could be added as well as this might help people who are trying to find the designer.

    fffound links back to GP so people who do click on the posters can figure it out, but just in case there's a feed out there that doesn't, it might help.

    The designers name appears on the designer links. Example:

    Yes, but that's not the link that ffffound and other image feeds are scraping. Here's what they get:

    So, the title has the bands, but not the designer. It might be helpful to have the designer name in the title as well for sites other than ffffound that scrape GP for images, or for people too lazy to click the poster link.

    gimme a link to this 'scrape' page. I'd like to see what you are talking about.

    I figure band names are more important for SEO and linking, as more people know band names then designer names. If someone is searching the web for 'scrojo' - that means they already know about him and will find his site and this site very easily. Its the band names that will attract new people here.
