Hi, I'm working on a new site, very beginning at the moment, and I'm trying to place my wordpress site description after the site title instead of below. At the moment is is like this: Energetic learning What do you need for that? And I want it to be like this: Energetic learning. What do you need for that? I have Googled for quite a while but it seems that this is not a regular question, or either I'm using the wrong search terms. You could argue that I could place all the info in the site title field, but I'd like to give the description a smaller typesize and a different colour and therefore using both fields gives me more flexibility. I've looked into header.php of the pagelines framework where some websites pointed me too, but I can't find any leads there. Maybe because header.php loads information from other files? I'm not an expert in php. Thanks for any help. Jan

Hoi @janpeeters: The site description is set in WordPress. Font size & colour for "wat heb jij daarvoor nodig?" can be changed through CSS. You can change the font size here: h6.site-description { font-size: 1.5em; You'll have to dig into the CSS in order to change the font color as the site description is inherited from the theme's H6 properties. Veel geluk!

Hi Jan, The simplest way to achieve this would be to simply create an image using software such as GIMP or Photoshop and use the text tools. Save the image, then upload it as your logo. I did a quick for you below.

If you want the blog description to be text rather than included in an image, that's possible, too.

Hi all, Thanks for your replies and sorry for my late response but strangely enough I didn't get notifications of your reactions. I must have forgotten to tick a box. ;-) It would be preferable to have it done in text for SEO reasons. So Catrina can you let me know how you would achieve this? Thanks in advance, Jan

Jan, I think Catrina was just pointing out that you can include it in WP's general settings. I don't know how it's possible to do what you're trying to do, but if you can provide us with some links to the posts you referred to, guiding the solution in the header file, we'll take a look and see how this is possible, if at all. It may need to be added to Custom Code or in a function.

Hi Danny,

That worked like a charm. I've used

instead of 10.5. Spacing is a bit nicer like that, but that might differ per browser and platform so i have to test that.

Thanks a lot, really appreciated,
Jan
