    Hi, you know how when you enter your forums name in WordPress it shows up in the status indicator in the top of the webrowser? Well I made a custom header image so when I type in the name of my website it overlaps the image so I don’t have the name listed. Is there a way to stop it from over lapping or a way I can show the name in the status indicator at the top of the browser?

  • TheTytanic, I’m really not for sure what you’re asking. What “status indicator” are you reerring to? Where in WordPress are you typing in the name of forums?

    It is in the options<general it says Weblog Name, then it will put up the blog name. Like by status indicator I mean how in this window it says WordPress > Support >>Status Indicator in Browser up top. In the blue bar if you have XP of the browser window. I forgot the name of it…

    As I cannot enter the weblog name otherwise it overwrites my current header image and if I don’t then it doesn’t show my weblog name up there.

    I thought of the name it is the title bar.

    One work-around is to find the css that is used to display that item. If it only is used for that item you can change it to display:none;

    TheTytanic, I see what you mean now; you’ll want to check out your theme’s header.php file. In it, look for the bit of HTML & PHP that displays the title of your site. It may look like this:

    <h1><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></h1>

    There are of course all sorts of various ways that may appear in a theme, but that’s a simple example.

    Either delete it or, more preferably, change it like this:

    <h1 style="display:none;"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></h1>
