Customizing Site Header – Text

The default text for WordPress headers is “Just Another WordPress Site.” Changing this is a littleĀ counter intuitive, but this post will tell you how to do it.

From your Dashboard menu, roll over “Settings” at the bottom of the list and click on “General.”

customize_headertext1

This will pull the General Settings menu up. The text in your site header below your site name is called the “tagline.”

customize_changetagline

Click on the box and type what ever you want your site header to say. Then scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the “Save” button.

You have now changed your header text. Great Job!

If you do not want a header you can remove the header in the Appearance –> Header menu. Scroll down towards the bottom and click “Remove Header Image.”

customize_removeheader

This button removes the tagline and website title from above the header picture. Not the actual header picture.
