Support » Theme: Spacious » Why is there h3 on the “site-title” in Spacious?

  • Hello,
    I have been using Spacious for a while and I like it. But one of the things that upset me the most is the “h3” tag on the “site-title”, in the header (/wp-content/themes/spacious/header.php)
    It destroys the structure of my page, because there is no <h1> or <h2> before :

    <h3> site title </h3>
    <h1> post title </h1>
    <h2> title of paragraph 1 </h2>
    <h3> title of sub-paragraph a </h3>
    <h3> title of sub-paragraph b </h3>
    <h2> title of paragraph 2 </h2>
    <h3> title of sub-paragraph a </h3>
    <h3> title of sub-paragraph b </h3>

    I tried changing the <h3 id=”site-title”> into “<div id=”site-title”>” but it comes back each time I update Spacious. Is there any way to change it ? Or is there any reason why there is an <h3> in the title ? I can’t really understand.

    I am considering buying the pro features of Spacious but I would prefer not have to make manual modifications each time it is updated.

    Thank your for your help

  • Hi @genevine,

    We appreciate your writing in.

    According to the SEO guidelines, there must be an h1 tag per post or page and in our Spacious theme, For the site title, we have used the h1 tag on the homepage. However, in a specific post or page, we need to highlight the post title more than the site title to make the post title SEO friendly so that we have used the H1 tag on the post title rather than the site title.

    If you need a different format for your post then we suggest you create a child theme and create the same directory file on the child theme and then modify it. This process will help you to keep your customization safe. If you do not have any idea on how to create a child theme then please check this link and follow the instruction kindly.

    According to the support guideline, we can not discuss the premium features in wordpress.org, if you are interested then please contact us via chat support.

    With Regards,

    Hello, thank you for your answer. I’m sorry but I don’t understand what you say.

    I am talking about regular pages and articles, not about the homepage. Why is there an <h3> tag on the site-title and no <h1> and <h2> before it? An <h3> should always come after an <h1> and an <h2>, no?

    I doesn’t make sense to have this structure :
    <h3> site title </h3>
    <h1> post title </h1>
    <h2> title of paragraph 1 </h2>
    <h3> title of sub-paragraph a </h3>
    <h3> title of sub-paragraph b </h3>
    <h2> title of paragraph 2 </h2>
    <h3> title of sub-paragraph a </h3>
    <h3> title of sub-paragraph b </h3>

    Wouldn’t it be much more consistent and SEO-friendly to have just this?
    site title (no tag)
    <h1> post title </h1>
    <h2> title of paragraph 1 </h2>
    <h3> title of sub-paragraph a </h3>
    <h3> title of sub-paragraph b </h3>
    <h2> title of paragraph 2 </h2>
    <h3> title of sub-paragraph a </h3>
    <h3> title of sub-paragraph b </h3>

    There is no need to put a tag on the “site-title” in the articles and pages.

    Thank your in advance
