How do I change what shows in the browser tab

  • I am using the Blaskan theme and I am trying to change what shows in the browser tab. Right now it is blank. My site is at http://www.jimklein.net.

    Any other suggestions on how to change my page and posts would be appreciated.

    I am new to Word Press and can use all the help I can get.

    Thanks in advance.

  • If I understand correctly, what you’re lookking for is called favicon.
    If you google that you’ll probably find the answer you need.

    Also, some themes have a built in “change favicon” feature.

    Hope that helps.

    It’s not the favicon, I’m talking about the words that show in the browser tab.

    <title>This shows in the tab!</title>

    To dynamically change what appears in the tab based on which page you are on:

    <title><?php echo the_title(); ?></title>

    Is the attribute you’re looking for

    How and where do I put that?

    In your WordPress admin screen, look for “Settings” in the left sidebar. Click on that, and the page “General Settings” should load (if not, click on “General” under “Settings”).

    The first field, at the very top of the page, is “Site Title”. This is what shows on the browser tab. You’ll also see it in the admin bar, top left. Just enter what you want, then click on “Save Changes” at the bottom of the page.

    (Note: “Settings” are part of the basic WP installation, so they are there regardless of what theme you use.)

    I did that and it’s still blank

    It shows properly when I’m inside the admin for my blog, however when I log out and type in the we address it is blank.

    My information is 100% correct.

    If you don’t know how/where to write code your going to have a very difficult time with this.

    I have tried putting it in the header.php between the title tags as well as in the setting under site title and it is still blank.

    What did you try putting in the header?

    If you didn’t build the theme yourself, I’d bet the author has another <title> deceleration in the file.

    And, I went to the site and see ‘Jim Klein | Income Acceleration’ in my tab.

    So it works…

    Now it does! I don’t know why I kept seeing it blank. Thanks for your help.
