Why Should You Remove or Change “Just Another WordPress Site” Tagline

When it comes to a WordPress website, when you pick a theme (especially a free theme) and apply it, by default, a tagline will appear on the top of every page called “Just another WordPress site.” It gives off a very unprofessional look to your website.

When a visitor notices it, that person will be put off by the fact that the owner hasn’t put much work into it. That’s why removing or changing it is very important to improve the overall look of the website and improve its traffic.

The problem arises when you go looking for a way to remove or change it. The reason for it is that the option to change the tagline varies from theme to theme. Knowing where to find it can help you move things along easily.

Method 3: Hiding the Tagline Using CSS

If your only objective is to hide the tagline temporarily (or permanently, for that matter), using CSS coding is the best option for your website. Mostly you won’t need this option because taglines can be easily removed using the previous 2 methods.

This method is only used if the tagline can’t be removed using regular means.

  • Start by going to “Appearance” and clicking on the “Customize” option.

Note: You also access this section by simply clicking on the “Customize” option from the website’s toolbar.

Go To &Quot;Appearance&Quot; And Click On &Quot;Customize.&Quot;
Go To “Appearance” And Click On “Customize.”
  • Go to the “Additional CSS” section.
Go To &Quot;Additional Css.&Quot;
Go To “Additional Css.”

Here, paste any of the two mentioned codes.

.site-description {

 visibility: hidden;



.site-description {

  display: none;

  • After pasting the code, click on the “Publish” button.

Note: For me, the 1st code worked, but for many, the 2nd also worked.

Paster The Code And Click &Quot;Publish.&Quot;
Paster The Code And Click “Publish.”
  • The tagline will be removed from your website.

If you want to make the tagline visible again, go back and remove the line of coding which you pasted and click on the “Publish” button. It’ll display the tagline

Why does it say “Just another WordPress site”?

When your WordPress website displays the phrase “Just another WordPress site,” it is usually the default tagline set by WordPress during installation. To improve your website’s brand and SEO, it is recommended to replace this generic tagline with a concise and relevant description that reflects the purpose of your site. By customizing the tagline, you can enhance your site’s branding, make it more appealing to visitors, and potentially improve its search engine visibility.

How do I change “Just another WordPress site”?

To update the default tagline “Just another WordPress site” on your WordPress website, follow these steps:

1. Log in to your WordPress dashboard.
2. Navigate to the “Settings” menu and select “General.”
3. You will find an option to change the Site Title and Tagline. Update the Tagline field to reflect your website’s purpose, services, or a catchy phrase that represents your brand.
4. Save the changes, and the new tagline will be displayed on your website in place of the default “Just another WordPress site.”

Can you create a second WordPress site?

Yes, you can create multiple WordPress sites on the same hosting account or server. Here are a few methods to create a second WordPress site:

1. Using Subdomains or Subdirectories: You can set up a new WordPress site as a subdomain (e.g., blog.example.com) or a subdirectory (e.g., example.com/blog) of your existing domain.
2. Multisite Installation: With the WordPress Multisite feature, you can manage multiple websites from a single WordPress installation. This is ideal if you want to create a network of websites using one WordPress setup.
3. Separate Installations: You can install multiple instances of WordPress in different directories on your server. Each installation will function as an independent website.

By following these methods, you can effectively create and manage multiple WordPress sites according to your needs and preferences.
