I saw a solution that had this line to submit a site with a title:

http://www.stumbleupon.com/submit?url=http://mysite.com&title=hello

But I can't make it use the title I provide in the line. So I just get to the submission page and see my url, but without the title filled in anywhere. How can I submit the site with a title?

You can't choose or select a custom title for a site you want to submit to StumbleUpon.

It will be chosen automatically from the page you're adding.

Can I change the title of a submitted article?

a page title is picked up from the source code of the page itself, and cannot be changed once attributed.

The reason is because it would be open to abuse.

If the page you want to include in your stumbles doesn't have a great title, you're either stuck with it or you could ask the owner of the page to provide a better title in the <title></title> tags.

Thanks for explanation, it makes sense. But what about Review field? Is that possible to fill that in? It's strange they suggest using title field in the url if it doesn't work. Thanks! –  Sergey Basharov Oct 18 '11 at 16:12
    
The review field will be what you think about the page, available for other stumblers to read and add theirs on. You can fill it in with whatever you feel like. @ser –  Eight Days of Malaise Oct 18 '11 at 16:27
    
I mean I am building an app with a textarea and want users to fill in some text there then clicking a button in my app's page would send the link and that textarea content to StumbleUpon as a submission. –  Sergey Basharov Oct 18 '11 at 16:56
    
Your follow up is a new question better asked on Stack Overflow. –  Eight Days of Malaise Oct 18 '11 at 17:20
