  • I’m trying to verify a site by inserting a meta tag. the instructins say to “Copy the meta tag below and paste it into your Web site’s home page. It should go in the <head> section, before the first <body> section.”

    <meta name="norton-safeweb-site-verification" content="6cblz2psnup7q814xkah7cjukrm5vzb8or1ok2yci7a90u8nvwwb02iovpj1h6osdnfl1ba-7-cyss3codmhvebgt1l74-tsddq-58-89e5e41weynglz-l47ueqmuiy" />

    I think the homempage is called Header.php in the Editor (or is it Index.php?).

    Anyway, in Header.php, I found this (below). Do i put the tag in here somewhere? Thank you for your help!

    	<meta charset="<?php bloginfo('charset'); ?>" />
    	<link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo('pingback_url'); ?>" />
    	if (is_singular()) {
    	<!--[if lt IE 9]>
    	<script src="<?php echo get_template_directory_uri(); ?>/scripts/html5.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    	global $suf_cpt_layouts, $suffusion_cpt_layouts;
    	if (isset($suf_cpt_layouts)) {
    		$suffusion_cpt_layouts = suffusion_get_associative_array($suf_cpt_layouts);
    <body <?php body_class(); ?>>
        <?php suffusion_before_page(); ?>
    		<div id="wrapper" class="fix">
    			<div id="container" class="fix">

  • The head section of the page is in the header.php file, yes. But you should not be editing theme files directly, but rather using a Child Theme so that your changes won’t be erased when the theme is updated.

    Once you do that, make a copy of your header.php file in the child theme and you can add the code just above the closing head tag – this </head>

    Thanks, WPyogi.

    Is a Child Theme necessary when all I’m doing is verifying a site so that Norton can check it? Or do they continue to verify it forever?

    Besides, learning how to use Child Themes is on my list somewhere, but nowhere soon… I hope.

    Well, it’s up to you. Any changes you make to theme files (i.e. the header.php file) will be erased when the theme is updated, so you’ll have to redo those changes. (Make sure you keep copies of changed files and very good backups if you are doing it that way!) I believe that Suffusion has a free child theme – so you might just check into that sooner rather than later :). You really don’t want to get too far down the road of “later” as you’ll have to redo a lot of stuff when you move to a child theme — settings and options don’t transfer over to a child theme.

    Thanks, Yogi.

    It just now got verified. And you’ve nudged me a little closer to learning about Child themes.

    Thanks for the help!
