Change the Site Title and Tagline

[user_firstname], I totally understand if in this very moment you feel like your website is a bit too similar to all of the other Wellness Business School students’ websites.

Not to worry, though, because after this module you’re going to feel a lot more at home! ?

In this module, we’re going to edit a bunch of key global features of your website and turn it into something that is uniquely yours.

And in order to achieve this, we’re going to use a little something something called the WordPress Theme Customizer.

The changes you make in the Theme Customizer really set the tone of your website because they can be seen across the board. With the Theme Customizer, you can drastically change the appearance and functionality of your WordPress website from one intuitive interface. That includes making changes to elements like the site title, colors, buttons, and menus.

In this lesson we’re going to start with the obvious and change your Site Title and Tagline.

Now, don’t worry if you don’t feel like you have a definite title and tagline just yet. We’re just getting started here and you can always come back and update these things whenever you need — specially after creating your irresistible signature program, which is what we’ll be covering in the next course.

To get to the WordPress Customizer, navigate to Appearance > Customize from your WordPress dashboard. You will be taken directly to the Customizer interface, with your theme preview on the right, and the Customizer menu on the left.

To change the Site Title and Tagline, head over to General Settings > Site Identity. Again, don’t get stuck here. Use your pretty name if needed and let’s continue flowing into more exciting things ?

PS: In the Site Identity section you can also see the Site Icon, more commonly known as a Favicon. Just like it says in the section, a Favicon is what you see in browser tabs, bookmark bars, and within the WordPress mobile apps. If you have a logo you’re happy with, upload one. Otherwise, we’ll come back to it after we get you a beautiful wellness logo you can be proud of!
