# Please include the title in the question preview

It would be really swell if the question title was included right above the preview of the body of the question.

Every so often, I'll be asking about something and the very act of composing a good question helps me better refine the problem. I go back and forth between SO and my workspace testing other possibilities and working on getting the best SSCCE. As I'm going back and forth updating the question, I'm constantly looking down at the preview, making sure everything's just right.

Once it is, I hit submit and see:

# Plz halp me Porblem with issue

That is followed by a brilliant question that should have been titled something like How can I reduce manifold wear when using third-party flanges?

This is exacerbated by the dupe suggestions. For a question of any length, the title I entered won't even be on screen by the time I'm near posting. Even when it is, it's easy to lose it up there as it's literally the smallest text on the top half of the page.

Thankfully I can edit to go fix things, but it would be easier to just get it right the first time. I know that improving the quality of titles around here is of keen interest, and this seems like an easy change that wouldn't bother anyone.

Thoughts?

Update:

Seeing how there's continuing furor over automatic editing of titles, showing askers their title with the automatic edits applied might help a lot. Some people will post "Question title broken?" questions here on meta, but those are the people whose titles are currently being broken without them noticing. Hopefully everyone else will get the hint and write better titles.

(There could even be a link to the policy when automatic edits are applied, but that starts to sound like real work to add.)

• I support this; it would make the look and feel more consistent with the question editor (the one that is displayed when the edit link is clicked). – Robert Harvey Dec 8 '11 at 0:32
