Does your site have the text "Just another WordPress site" in the header or title bar?

Often beginners do not know how to change this slogan. But leaving it in place doesn't look good. Fortunately, it's really easy to change this to something else, or even remove it entirely.

In this tutorial we will show you step by step how to change the text "Just another WordPress site".

What is the slogan of a WordPress site?

A slogan is the slogan or description of a WordPress site. Many websites use a slogan as a slogan to describe their website and brand.

By default, WordPress uses "Just another WordPress site" for your website's slogan when you first create a website. Not all topics display the slogan, but many will.

An example of the text

You should definitely change this text from the default. In fact, this is on our list of the most important things you should do after installing WordPress.

Here at WPBeginner we use "Beginner's Guide to WordPress" as a slogan. You can see it directly under our navigation menu. It is also in the title tag of our website in your browser.

You don't have to have a slogan for your website at all.

The subject or mission of your website may be evident from the domain name.

However, if your domain name isn't clearly linked to your blogging niche, adding a catchy slogan may be a good idea.

Method 1: change your slogan in WordPress settings

The easiest way to change the slogan "Just another WordPress site" is in the settings of your WordPress site.

First of all, you need to go to your WordPress dashboard. You can usually do this by adding / wp-admin to the end of your website's domain name.

For example, if your site is named example.com, your WordPress dashboard is at example.com/wp-admin.

If you are not already signed in, WordPress will ask you to sign in.

Once you are signed in, you have to go Settings »General on your dashboard, and that’s where the tagline box will appear.

You can either change the slogan or remove it entirely by unchecking the box.
