[resolved] [closed] Still can't Change my Blog title and description (8 posts)

    Greetings,

    I have read and tried almost all the suggestions within the forum for changing the blog title and description. I bought a theme from theme forest which uses a blog title in a logo.png (graphic) format. I tried to change the <div id="wrapper"> or delete it, when i do this, it distorts the blog structure and layout completely. If possible, I would really just like to have the blog title and description reflect what i write in the setting>General>blog title or tagline in the dashboard.

    my url is http://financingthegap.com, and the header.php reads as

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" <?php language_attributes(); ?>>

    You need to use a wordpress function.

    Stick this in between the h1 tags

    <?php $blog_title = get_bloginfo('name'); ?>

    You can find all the functions that refer to your site's info here :
