    Hi. Very new user. Just got set up today. Just wondering how I could edit my META name="keywords" and my META name="description"
    Is there a place to edit this in the admin panel? Or would I have to edit one of the php files? If so which one and where? Thanks very much.

    You'd have to edit the header.php file in the theme you're using.

    You can go about it one of two ways:

    In the admin section of your site, go to Presentation > Theme Editor and select header.php from the right hand side, edit there, and save.

    or

    FTP in, go to wp-content/themes/yourthemefolder/header.php and download it to a text editor. Edit it, save it, and FTP it back up to the same location.
