[resolved] Giving blog a name when you have a different image header (4 posts)

    I am using the Default Kubrick theme. I replaced the blue graphic header image with my own graphic, which has my blog name on it. In order to do that, I had to erase my blog name and tagline from the admin options, as the text from the name was going over my image. I still want my blog to have a "name" though, is this possible?

    Put that stuff back in your admin options.
    Edit your theme's header.php and find this near the bottom:

    <h1><a href="<?php echo get_settings('home'); ?>/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1>
    		<div class="description"><?php bloginfo('description'); ?></div>

    Comment it out or delete it. Always back up 1st.

    tmerr-yes, in order to do things like claim your blog on Technorati, it will still need to have a name. What you want to do is go into Dashboard-->Presentation-->Theme Editor-->header.php, and look for this:

    <title><?php wp_title(''); ?>

    Between those two single quote marks, put the title of your blog, so it looks like this:

    <title><?php wp_title('TheNameOfYourBlog'); ?>

    That should do the trick.
