Very Frequently Asked Questions: A Very Quick Tutorial on Titles and Taglines on Day 2

DISCLAIMER:

I am not a staff member and I am not affiliated with WordPress.

I started these tutorials because I am inherently lazy (actually not, I just don’t like doing the same thing over and over) – and a LOT of people need help with the same thing! (So, don’t feel lonely!)

WHERE IS THE CUSTOMIZE MENU?

WHERE DO I CHANGE MY TITLE AND TAGLINE?

Where do I change my title and tagline

Where do I change my title and tagline

Go to the Customize menu. Then select site title.

MY TAGLINE IS NOT SHOWING UP! WHY?

First, check that the Display Header Text box is ticked in your Site Title menu.

However, some themes do not display your tagline (Flounder, for example.)

IF MY TAGLINE ISN’T GOING TO SHOW, DOES THIS MEAN I SHOULD CHANGE MY THEME?

That is up to you, but I would not recommend changing from a theme that you love for something as small. Your tagline will still be visible to search engines and will benefit you for SEO purposes.

WHAT IS SEO?

It stands for Search Engine Optimization. Basically, how easy it is for search engines like Google to find you and where your site will be ranked in their search results.

  1. Man, I wish you’d have posted this at the beginning of the 101 course. All the Support stuff kept telling me to go to “Appearance” and my theme has NO appearance…it does have “look and feel.” I have a question. I don’t really understand the “lists” thing in my Reader. Some titles I have there create a list in the reader part, and some don’t. What’s up with that?

    • I compiled the questions during the course. So it will be available for the next group of 101 participants. Sorry it was a bit late for you.

      The appearance debacle is not because of your theme, but because WP have been making lots of changes to their menus lately. More fiddling is expected…

      I will try to do a quick tutorial on lists as soon as I have a bit of time to spare. I need to play around a bit to re-create the problem you are experiencing.
