Hi Malcolm,

On EPrints 3.3.7:

Edit /opt/eprints3/archives/<id>/cfg/lang/en/templates/default.xml

if the file above doesn't exist, create the necessary directories, and 
copy the file from /opt/eprints3/lib/templates/default.xml to the above 
location.

You should see something like, see my comments in bold:

<?xml version="1.0" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE html SYSTEM "entities.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" 
xmlns:epc="http://eprints.org/ep3/control">
<head>
.. ignore ..
</head>
<body>
*<!-- content starts: -->*
<epc:pin ref="pagetop"/>
*<!-- header starts: -->*
<div class="ep_tm_header ep_noprint">
*<!-- the logo/picture: -->*
<div class="ep_tm_site_logo">
<a href="{$config{frontpage}}" title="{phrase('archive_name')}">
<img alt="{phrase('archive_name')}" 
src="{$config{rel_path}}{$config{site_logo}}"/>
</a>
</div>

*<!-- The menu bar: -->*
<ul class="ep_tm_menu">
<li>
<a href="{$config{http_url}}">
<epc:phrase ref="template/navigation:home"/>
</a>
</li>
.. etc ..

So simply add your archive_name above the "menu bar", something like:

<div class="ep_tm_archivetitle_box"><a class="ep_tm_archivetitle" 
href="{$config{frontpage}}"><epc:phrase ref="archive_name"/></a></div>

If you want to adjust the font/colour/size etc, edit the style (in a css 
file) "div.ep_tm_archivetitle_box" or "a.ep_tm_archivetitle".

Once you're done, reload Apache and check your changes. Let me know if 
you still have troubles after that.

Kind regards,
Seb
