Support » Fixing WordPress » Change name in top of Window Internet Explorer/Mozilla FF bar

  • Resolved mhoey



    Sorry but it has been long time since I did this, and one tend to forget!

    I want to change a small fault in the top bar of Internet Explorer/Mozila Fire Fox, where it shows the name of the site etc.

    Like on my own site: where it states: Around the World Jorney – – Windows Internet Explorer which should have been Journey!

    Can anybody tell me which file I should download and correct with my FTP Commander?

    And what is this bar called, navigation bar or?

    Thanks for your help

    Kind regards

  • That is probably what you have set as the description of your site. In your backend, go to Settings >> General and change the description there.


    You are thinking of the Blogtitle and Tagline, which are displayed directly on my site. I am thinking of what is displayed in the top bar of the Internet Window/Internet Explorer/Fire Fox, like in this post: WordPress > Support >> Change name in top …….

    You can both change it for your sides and for your blogpage, I need to configure it for my blogpage.

    In which file can I change this?

    Kind regards


    I assume that it was directly written in header.php of your theme.
    And look for the element of a title tag like this.
    <title>Around the World Jorney -</title>

    I have been through all the files in the routh directory and also the header.php of the theme with Notepad to searh for “Jorney” and I can’t find it anywhere!

    I have pasted my header.php here:

    <title><?php global $post; if ( is_single() || is_page() || is_archive() ) wp_title(''); else bloginfo('ATWJ -'); if ($post->post_parent) echo ' - '.get_the_title($post->post_parent); ?> | ATWJ -</title>

    Line 12 is setting it…..someone else will have to give you more specifics…I only half understand what is being done here

    Are anybody able to upload your header.php where you have done the changes to correct the name of your site in your browser frame, so I can see if there is something wrong with my code?



    <title><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> <?php if ( is_single() ) { ?> &raquo; Blog Archive <?php } ?> <?php wp_title(); ?></title>

    is mine boss……


    It was my fault, typed wrong in my All in One SEO plugin. Under home description!

    Thanks for your help anyway.
