How to Change the "Just Another WordPress Site" Text

Does your site have the text "Just another WordPress site" in the header or title bar? Often beginners don't know how to change this tagline. But leaving it in place doesn't look good. Luckily, it's really easy to change this to something else or even remove it altogether. In this tutorial, we'll show you how to change the "just another WordPress site" text, step by step.

What is a WordPress Site's Tagline?

A tagline is a WordPress site's slogan or description. Many websites use a catchy phrase as their tagline to describe their website and brand. By default, WordPress uses "Just another WordPress site" for your website's tagline when you first create a website. Not all themes display the tagline, but many will.

You don't have to have a tagline for your site at all. Your site's topic or mission might be clear from its domain name. However, if your domain name isn't clearly linked to your blogging niche, then adding a catchy tagline could be a good idea.

Changing Your Tagline in WordPress's Settings

The simplest way to change the "Just another WordPress site" tagline is in your WordPress site's settings.

First, you'll need to go to your WordPress dashboard. You can normally do this by adding /wp-admin to the end of your website's domain name.

For instance, if your site is called example.com, then your WordPress dashboard is at example.com/wp-admin.

If you're not already logged in, then WordPress will prompt you to log in.

Once logged in, you need to go to Settings » General in your dashboard, and you'll see the tagline field there.

For our example, we're going to use 'WordPress tips and tricks' for our example website.

Once you've changed that, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the 'Save Changes' button. Now, you can visit your site and see your new tagline in place:
