    Hi everyone.

    I've been trying all day to find ways to view and modify my site's HTML code and also optimize title tag and description tag but it seems 3.3.1 version doesn't allow access to such modification. I hope I'm wrong. Could someone please help me.

    A WordPress site uses php files to create all its output. The HTML is embedded in those php files. You can modify many of the aspects of the site using CSS as found in the style.css file of your theme.

    Depending on your theme, the site title and description code may be found in header.php.

    Before making modifications, you should create a Child theme. If you do not, all your changes will be lost if you update the theme.

    My problem is similar to cesar's above. I want to change some of my pages so that the page title is not also shown on the page as a heading. When I look at "view source" when viewing the page, I can see the html code I need to fix, but I don't know how to get to to it to fix it. Can someone help with this?

    As I said before, look in the .php files for the code. The HTML is embedded in the .php template files.

    Hi again

    I cannot get into the .php files because on my dashboard there is no "editor" tab.

    Is there an Appearance tab? Is this a wordpress.com site?
