WordPress, Why Do You Mock Me?

When installing WordPress there is one thing that always bothers me. If you look at your blog page after the installation process the tagline is set to "Just another WordPress site." I would imagine the WordPress developers didn't mean anything by it, but the message isn't very welcoming.

But not you WordPress. Maybe the tagline should be "Another awesome WordPress site in the works!" They don't have to mean it.

Removing the "Just another WordPress site"

To change the tagline or remove it completely

  1. Log into your WordPress admin panel
  2. Click the Settings option in the left menu (see Figure 1)
  3. Under General Setting, change or remove the text found in the Tagline field
  4. Click the Save Changes button
