How to Change the WordPress Title and Tagline
When you first install WordPress through Softaculous, you may set up the site with a temporary site name and tagline just to complete the installation process. See the snapshot to the right. In the event you want to update the main title of your WordPress site, you can change it in the WordPress dashboard general settings. Next are the steps on how to do this.
Changing the Title and Tagline
- Log into the Wordpress Dashboard.
- On the left in the sidebar, hover over "Settings" and click General.
- The "Site title" and the "Tagline" can be changed here. Enter a new title and tagline.
Congratulations, now you know how to customize the Title and Tagline in your WordPress site!

Hi! I 've edited the Site title and Tagline, but still, the header in the tab of my browser shows the domain name of the site instead of the Site title.

I first recommend clearing your browser cache, to rule this out.
This setting location can differ based on the specific theme you have. Check the settings for your theme to see if there is a separate location to set this.
Also some plugins (such as SEO plugins) can add a seperate area for specifying the setting.

Thank you. Was trying to figure out why my name is still showing old even when I changed it in general. The them has an SEO section and I forgot I had set the old name in there. Changed it and now it is showing the right site identity. Kind of hard to have a site teaching game development when your site is named Get the Girl.
