When I installed WordPress, I went for an Express Install which kept the Site Settings to its default settings.
Though it provided me a much quicker installation, it didn’t give me the option to change the site’s name and description.
If you’ve done the same thing, let me show you how to customize it.
Customize Site Identity
Login to your WordPress dashboard. Then click on Customize from the menu bar.
Select Site Identity to continue.
From here, you can change the Site Title and Tagline which were left as default. You can also upload an image for the Site Icon.
- Site Title – This refers to the name of your site. I use my name on my domain name so I just put my name for the site title as well.
- Tagline – This puts a description on your site. I haven’t decided yet, but this is where you tell people what your site is about in a few words.
- Site Icon – This is the small icon you see on your browser tabs and bookmark bars. It is also known as Favicon. Make sure to upload an image with at least 512 x 512 pixels. I used Canva to create a site icon for this site.
When you’re done, hit Publish to save the changes.
That’s it! I hope you learned from this quick tutorial. If you have some questions, please feel free to drop me a comment below.
