[resolved] Blog title tag and description. (5 posts)

    Hello,
    This may be a daft question, I've searched and can't find an answer - please do just point me in the right direction if that's appropriate....

    I have a blog here: http://ethicstrading.com/blog and it's using WP 3.0.5 with theme Limau orange. It's on paid hosting and is linked from a CMS Made simple site (not sure how much of that is important but I figure there's no such thing as too much info!)

    The Problem:
    A little history - I set up the blog ages ago as part of a business and I managed to find and sort out a short description for it that was suitable for the business as it was then. So when I share the link, the description is pulled through. You know, on facebook, you attach a link and a short description pops up.... It says Ethics Trading - sustainable solutions (which is fine) and then it blathers on about cleaning and soap nuts, which I no longer sell..

    I've changed the business an want to change that description, but can I find it? I've looked in the template files, the general settings, I've looked in the files on my host control panel. I can't find where it says it to change it. I suspect it's a meta tag somewhere and I just can't see it.

    Help?
    Thanks
    Sarah

    the blog title and the tag line/description are generally entered in 'dashboard' 'settings' 'general'

    -
    unless you have hardcoded them into header.php of your theme.

    I looked there first, that's where I assumed it would be.
    I've changed the theme to Magazine Basic and it still does it. Changing the theme wasn't as a fix, it was because I felt like a change... However, the header.php file is now different so it's not hard coded into that.

    I must have hard coded it somewhere else.

    another common place to add info like blog title and description this is any seo plugin in use

    By Jove, I think you may have it....

    There it was, lurking in the "All in one SEO" plug in.
    Thank you.
