    Currently my blog has nothing in the internet browser title bar on the home/main page. I have tried several SEO plugins but most of them are overkill for what I need. The other pages are OK for what I need and only the main page is what I am looking at changing. Using the "cbOne 1.0.4 by Christopher Bergmann" theme if that makes a difference.

    Edit header.php and look for the <title> and </title> markup elements. Amend those tags and whatever is within them to:

    <title><?php wp_title('&laquo;', true, 'right'); ?> <?php bloginfo('name'); ?></title>

    PLEASE HELP. my website is http://www.hollywoodactingworkshop.com. i want to fix the spelling on the web browser title bar. i have searched all of categories/subcategories of my wordpress 2.8 and i still cannot find where to edit it anywhere. after reading some blogs, i still cannot figure out where EXACTLY to go to edit this title bar.

    i went to appearance/themes/editor/header.php...and found this:
    <title><?php bloginfo('name'); ?><?php if ( is_single() ) { ?> » Blog Archive <?php } ?><?php wp_title(' » '); ?></title>

    <meta name="generator" content="WordPress <?php bloginfo('version'); ?>" /> <!-- leave this for stats -->

    is this the right place? if so, where are the actual words in my title??? are they uploaded on my web designers site somewhere that i cannot get to?

    @ silvanaskara - im not entirely clear which spelling mistake you are referring to - but if its page titles you change them using the wordpress dashboard - you need your login details to access this. Your pages can be found using the pages link on the right :)
