Have you created a new WordPress site and want to change your title or site tagline? For most new WordPress websites, the title will be set to the website name/domain name, whilst the tagline will be the default "Just another WordPress site" (did you know, up until fairly recently, the tagline was "Just another WordPress blog", paying homage to the fact WordPress was originally a blogging platform?).

Obviously this isn't ideal, you're going to want your own tagline and title which describes your site.

Luckily, changing both the title, and the tagline is quick and easy.

Firstly, you need to navigate to Settings->General:

wpowl-settings-general

You'll see that the first 2 options are your title and your tagline:

wpowl title/tagline settings in WordPress admin

Simply fill out the information you want to display as your website title, and tagline, then click on the "Save Changes" button at the bottom of the page.

Did you know: By default, your site title and tagline will be displayed together as the browser title on your browser tab.
