Support » Fixing WordPress » How to Make Blog Name Show on Browser Tabs?

  • Resolved epicureonabudget



    I have a custome header on my blog page. In General Settings when I put the name of my blog and the tagline, this text appears across my header even though I clicked on “hide text” when uploading my own image as a custom header.

    I looked around and then figured out that my “Under the Influence” theme was indeed hiding that text (Blog name & tagline). Somehow the Blogname and Tagline are showing up on my page, even when my Theme/custome header IS hiding the text.

    The only way to make it disappear is to go to General Settings and remove the blog name and description.

    But when I do this, the brower tab and browser title is empty. It also causes searches in google for my blog name..not to show up right.

    I have tried looking through CSS (am lost, can’t find the lines the guide tells me to change)

    Please help?

    Thanks in advance

    What is the name of your theme?

    It’s “Under the Influence”

    my website is:

    you can see the problem in the header.

    Did you apply the custom header via the theme’s settings, or did you inset it into the code yourself?

    I applied the custom header via the theme’s settings.

    I then clicked on “hide text”.

    When I go to “Appearence” then “Custom Header” I can see a button that says “show text” and “hide text”. I have clicked on “hide text” and it appears to be holding (at least the button is now “show text” meaning that “hide text” is the current selection.


    As you see, the text is still showing up on my homepage 🙁

    I have now gone to General Settings and removed the Blog Name. But this means that my website name does not appear on the browser tab.

    Well, we can always edit that out of the code. Go to Appearance/Editor in your admin panel, open the Header template, and remove all three occurrences of the following line:

    <h1><a href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1>

    Remember, it’s in there three times and you have to remove all of them to be sure.

    When you’re done, add the blog name back in Settings/General.

    It worked! Great and thank you!! This was bugging me for days now 🙂

    You’re welcome!



    Now how do you customize the Browser tabs logo. I would like a nice Emerald on my browser tab but the old thees tab is still there.
