Updated Tagline---now it's not showing (3 posts)

    I changed my blog name from "Lolly: Adventures in Mothering" to "Lolly: Obsessing over Parenting". It used to show the tagline with the title in the tab bar, and also in Google searches. Now it's only showing "Lolly".

    My header is an image so the tagline is in that of course. But I changed it in the dashboard under Options/General over a week ago. I thought maybe it would just take awhile to show up, but it's still not. Is there somewhere else I need to update it?

    Still having this problem. Anyone? It's been a month or more and my tagline is still not showing up in the tab bar or in Google Searches. I'm sure I'm missing something... but what?

    when I view your page source, I see this:

    <title>Lolly</title>

    that tells me that value has not been changed.

    perhaps you want to update that option again in your admin area? See if that helps?

    you might also to check and make sure that your theme file is actually using the code that pulls that value.

    <title><?php bloginfo('name'); ?><?php wp_title(); ?></title>

    <?php bloginfo('name'); ?> is the actual title , despite the confusing names.

    that should be in header.php or whatever other file contains your header stuff.
