How do I change the Blog Title Link

  • greencode


    I’d like the Blog Title Link, in the top left corner, to link to my site’s homepage and not my blog’s homepage. Is there any way to specify this?

    I’ve figured out how to do this my manually editing the header.php file of the theme but is this the only way to do it?

    I believe it’s the only way to do it.



    greencode HOW did you do that? I tried another way and lost access to my blog and can’t edit anything anymore..



    Hi, apologies for the delay in getting back to you – I don’t seem to be getting instant notifications! Oh well, back to the matter at hand:

    If you look in your theme’s root folder you’ll see a file called “header.php”, open this file in a text editor. In between the H1 tags there should be something like this:

    “<?php bloginfo(‘siteurl’); ?>”

    I simply changed this to:

    “my site name dot com”

    and that then changes the link. I think you did it through the Settings section in your wp-admin section on WP. That’s what I did and lost the ability to edit or do anything with the blog. If that’s still the case then can you access phpmyadmin through your cPanel? If so do this:

    Enter phpmyadmin
    > Select your database
    > Click browse on the wp-options table
    > Edit the siteurl to your previous location.

    Hopefully all of that should help you.

    I was twisting my head around a pole and found this thread. Thanks. My head has been rescued.
