I want to create a kind of directory list of all the photo galleries on my site with their ID number and title. I know how to extract the ID number form the URL, but am unsure of how to extract the page titles of each gallery automatically. Can someone please help me?

This should really be done server side (using PHP, ASP, etc.) as a JavaScript solution will be inaccessible to people (and search engines) with JavaScript disabled. However, you can get the title (as defined in the <title> element in your <head>) via:

document.title

This script is solely for my own use.

How would I use document.title to find the title of another page?

I misunderstood your request.
I don't think there is a good client side solution.

Alright. I post this in the PHP forum then. I was trying to create a page I could run off my local machine without having to use a server, but I'll make it work. Thanks for the help.
