    Hello,

    I am using the FREE version of Inkness theme, and can not figure out how to get the tagline to appear. Any help appreciated. Thank you!

    Well Michael, I am sorry no one else here can help you. I am also sorry that this theme, and so many others, sloppily leave out the functionality of a basic user-friendly tagline on/off button.

    Here's my suggestion:
    1) Go to the Editor under Appearance.
    2) Select the file "header.php" on the right side of the page. This displays the raw code used to generate the header that appears on the top of every page on your website.
    3) Look for the code "<?php bloginfo( 'name' ); ?>," which displays the title of the blog.
    4) Type the following code right after that:
<?php bloginfo( 'description' ); ?>
    5) Click Update file.
    Make sure you have entered the tagline text in the Settings/General area. (Im guessing you already entered it here where it brilliantly did nothing.)

    Please note: Adding the code above, will create there identical font and color of the title. In order to change it, you will need to go into the CSS. Honestly, its almost not worth it. Furthermore, when/if the theme is updated, you must go back into the header.php file, and the CSS (if you change that as well) and modify all over again. Its all a pain when a simple on/off switch would be so helpful for a basic tagline, which should be a god-given right to any web site owner.

    Anyway, here's the code how it appears after I added in the header.php section of this theme. Hope it helps, and good luck!

    h1 class="site-title"><a>" title="<?php echo esc_attr( get_bloginfo( 'name', 'display' ) ); ?>" rel="home"><?php bloginfo( 'name' ); ?>, <?php bloginfo( 'description' ); ?></a></h1>

    Thanks!
    Did the trick, and good enough for now.

    I guess I'll just have to choose themes that consider tag lines important enough to add functionality.

    Developers, see above.

    :)
