  • Is it possible to access the HTML source of my site? (
    I’m currently trying to change the header of my about page, which can be accessed here and I can’t do it by working in the styling sheet.

    I want to change the about page header that says “About” without changing its name on my menu bar.

    I used the developer tools and saw that you can change this in the HTML Source, but I have no idea how to access it. I changed the size of the header and the line-height through the stylesheet by adjusting the page-template, but I want to get a little deeper.

    You would be better of just changing the name of the page in the editor, then access the menu editor and changing the label to the text you want on your menu bar.

    If you really want to dive into changing code, then your themes files will be in /wp-content/themes/balance.

    Hope this helps.

    It helped very much, thank you.

    Just one more quick question if you can. The theme folder in wp-content only has .php files and the style sheet. I’m not extremely familiar with coding, but are .php files how you manipulate html? The ones I have are:


    So I don’t really have just a page.php file. I’m not sure where I would go to tweak a default format page that’s not landing or portfolio.

    WordPress is built on PHP. PHP is basically it’s own scripting language. If you wanted to edit the themes in any way, you would be dealing with PHP/Wordpress codex/CSS, not HTML.

    Based on the demo site, I’m going to guess page_portfolio.php is a page templete, and page_landing.php and the corresponding CSS is where you’re going to want to start. However, you bought a commercial child/theme so you should be able to ask them any questions and get support.

    If you’re interested in learning the coding behind your theme, I suggest going to “Docs” and going from there.
