    Hi, I would love someone's help on this. I did some research but couldn't find the answer.

    I'm using PageLines theme (free version) and I want to change the header text which I put couple of months ago. I remember I did something on a template but I have no idea which one it was.

    Here's my website:
    http://lifewithphotos.com
    the text I want to change is right below the logo; "Life With Photos ~A Daily Life Photography Blog From Texas By A Japanese~ / ..."

    I hope someone can help me. Thank you for your help in advance.

    I found out how to change, so I'm going to share the information.

    First, the theme I'm using is Platform free version from PageLines. Sorry about the confusion.
    If you want to add text below the logo (above the navigation), go to your cpanel and open the file folder. Go to this directory /public_html/wp-content/themes/platform/includes/library.functions.php and you can add a function code at the end.

    The problem is my php file got reset and I had no idea what code I was putting on (I'm sorry I'm not professional in CSS or HTML).

    Instead of doing that, I put
    <div class="header_text"><p>text</p></div>
    above
    <?php if(pagelines('rsslink')):?>
    on template.branding.php file on wordpress appearance editor.

    I hope this will help someone.
    Also, I would like to know what code I can put in on cpanel php file. Hopefully some one can help!

    Also, there's an easier way to edit your themes than going through your cpanel.
    Go to your dash, then click appearance and the editor.
    From there, you can edit all the css/php related to that theme.

    As for the code you were putting hin, I can't help you. D:

    Since that's a tag line, have you tried going to your settings-> general and seeing if it's there?

    Yes, but the tag line doesn't work for this theme. :(

    I'm not sure. :C
    I've never used that theme before so... I don't know. D:
    YOu don't remember at all how/where you put in that phrase?

    I remember how/where but I don't remember HTML code... I can keep researching and find it again I guess.

    I'm sure you're already using ctrl+f.

    But that is my last tip? Sorry I can't help more. DX
