How to change your site name in Drupal

The Site Name in Drupal is the main title that your visitors see on your page and in the upper tabs of your visitor’s browsers. It is located in the header portion of the page and is written in the largest text. By default, the site name is set to the domain name of the site. You may not want to show that as your site name, but change it to something else instead. For example, your site name may be but you want to display Cats and Dogs as your site name. Editing the site name in the Drupal admin dashboard is very simple once you know how.

Editing the site name in Drupal:

  1. Log into the dashboard

    Log into your Drupal admin dashboard.
