Modifying the Header (4 posts)

    Ok I'm trying to set up a new blog site for my new film which is a Quantum Leap fan film called Quantum Geek. The site hasn't been officially launched yet and it's pretty much a basic install of WordPress 2.0 and Semiologic CMS system. All I've managed to do so far is modify the background colour and the header so that it shows the Quantum Geek logo.

    However I'd like to be able to get rid of the text title that says 'Quantum Geek' and the tagline for the blog/cms site. I've looked through all of the theme and css files but I can't figure out a way to do this (I'm pretty new to php).

    Could somebody please tell me where the lines that display the tagline and text header are located so that I can stop them from displaying on the pages?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    you can find this in the header.php in the first lines
    it should look like this code snippet:

    <!-- <h1>/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></h1>-->

    it depends on every theme, but normaly this is what you are looking for. "get-settings home" is the blogname and bloginfo
    is the short description of your blog/cms/ whatever :)

    u can do 2 things now, 1st delete this line completly save or update the header php in wordpress or upload it again with ftp.
    the other solution can be easier, u comment this line out. this works better and is better in your case. commenting out works with <!-- this code --> BUT!!!!

    then is your header not clickable anymore....hope i could help

    Honestly, I don't recommend deleting either one.... Search engines love that kind of stuff. Removing it may cause SEs to not properly determine your content.

    But what you can do is change the CSS to use visible: hidden; which will keep the items in the code where the SE will pick it up, but render it invisible to the web browser.
