WordPress Skills Guide: General Settings

General settings

The setting we will look at here is your blog “title” and “tag line”. It is located under Settings > General. Once you’re on the General Settings page, you can give your blog any title you want. You can also give your blog a tagline, which can be a short description of the blog.

When you change the title and tag line, they will usually show up at the top of your site in the header. Depending on what theme you use, the title and tag lines will show up in various places. Usually, you’ll find them somewhere in the header of the site. Some themes may not display the tagline.

There are more settings on the General Settings page, such as setting the administrative email account, time zone, date format, etc. Change those to whatever is appropriate for your site and geographical location.
