    Hi Kimi,

    Great tutorial, I just installed the new WordPress 3.01 on my new blog and while watching this, I noticed the editor you were using to edit your css files. May I ask what it is and where I can get it. I usually have a hard time formatting them once I’ve pasted them back.

    Thanks!

    All the forums close without resolving the issue of changing the tagline -go to settings, then general, then change the wording in the tagline.
    I have asked for help with this same issue but, like many others, it has not been resolved.
    Perhaps this is too complicated for a quick fix. I have changed my tagline twice andmy blog title and tagline look just fine. That is not the issue. On top of the header, I still have my original tagline and no one seems to be able to tell me how to get rid of it.
    It is above the header bar, not inside it. The forums just don’t seem to understand the question. View the ugliness at http://www.homeschoolnmore.com. Thanks in advance for your help.

      Hi there Dolores,

      I have checked your site, and the page source as well, looks like it comes from all in seo pack plugin settings.

      Try to save all in one seo pack settings. then disable it, and see it solves the problem.

      Let me know how it goes.

        Hi Kimi:
        Wow! You are a godsend. How wonderful to find you and finally, after several months, you have solved my problem. Well, one of my problems anyway. ;}
        I didn’t have to deactivate the “all_in_one SEO plugin to remove that title that was just above the header (not in it), but in the Internet Explorer area. No one else seemed to understand my problem, but you did!
        For the benefit of others, I went to the Dashboard page, scrolled to the bottom of the page, left hand side under settings, select All-In-One SEO plugin. Open that and you will find the configuration page which is self-explanatory. Near the bottom of their form, it asks for “Titles” and “Other Titles.” I found that when I changed my tagline on the front page to a better SEO title, I neglected to go back to the SEO plugin info page and remove the old tagline.
        It was that easy! After weeks and weeks of wasted time and much hair-pulling, Kimi has solved my problem!

      Hi Kent!

      I have the same problem. I have a dot tk domain, and host with 000webhost. In the tab bar above the url the tab shows the following: “Flaxme|Just another WordPress…..” this is frustrating, and I’ve tried everything…. even going into CSS and adding “display:none” to the site-description. No luck. Nothing…. I’m a Noob too… and its driving me nuts. Do we have to go into php or something or is it a hosting or dot tk problem??
