How to change header title?

  1. Hello,

    I've just started and made a few blogs.

    However, I just created a new blog on "Life After a Stroke".

    Unfortunately, I cannot find any way of changing the Empowerism wording to "Life After a Stroke". in the header.

    As you can also see below, it also contains another blog called "Home Bonsai - Easier To Grow, Than You Thought!"

    I simply want a new blog on strokes. Does this mean that every new blog will contain links to all my old blogs? I hope not, as I wish to address each new subject seperately.

    Any clues pleae.

    Life After a Stroke

    Every year thousands of people suffer from the debilitating consequences of a stroke. Many will die. The sooner you recognize the early warning signs Of stroke,

    Above is the URL of my above post and found the Empowerism blog right beneath my Stroke one!

    Any easy suggestions, please?

  3. -> Options - > Weblog Title
    -> Options - > Tagline (make changes and click "Update Options" to save)

  4. Those are blog entries, not individual blogs. The whole "site" is the blog. Therefore, it can only have one title and many entries (think of it like a book - one title, many chapters). If you want to cover different subjects that have their own page headers and whatnot, you have to sign up for new, stand-alone blogs.

    I'd also like to point out that you can't have all that money-making stuff on there:

    We have a very low tolerance for blogs created purely for search engine optimization or commercial purposes, machine-generated blogs, and will continue to nuke them, so if that’s what you’re interested in WordPress.com is not for you.

  5. Thumbs up for abbydonkrafts.

    @greycap1
    In addition to the advertising restrictions that abbydonkrafts provided a link to above I encourage you to read the ToS Section 2 bullet 5. There you will find that wordpress.com blogs cannot be used to drive traffic to other sites.

  6. Hello,

    Thank you, I was unaware of that fact.

    Sorry I transgressed.

    That is why my blogs and myself were suspended.

    Actually, the "Life After a Stroke" blog (which I wanted to show on its own) was pointing to my website on strokes and the treatment of same.

    Sure my blog has (had!) a link to an ebook on the care of stroke victims. I can't afford to maintain a stroke site, without the chance of some income, such as an affiliate ebook/Adsense. Is that a crime in WordPress' eyes? I'm only on a small pension.

    Remember, I didn't want the Empowerism header; the blog underneath, or the bit about growing Bonsai. That is why I asked for help to have it as purely a 'Life After a Stroke' site/blog.

    Boy, asking for help sure got me clobbered. I have been given the header answer, I think, but now have no blogs, it seems.

    O.K. Have I now been banned from WordPress?

    Thank you for your help.

  7. If you contact staff and remove all commercial content from your blogs, you can generally get them back. But if you want to do business on your blogs, you need business blogs which are independently hosted (at a cost to you: it costs to do business).

    I believe from your posts at WordPress.org that you have such a blog, so all you need is to get a copy of your WP.com blogs and put the content up on that blog.

  8. Thank you Raincoaster.

    I tried WordPress.org in two ways.
    I attempted for two solid days, to upload WordPress 2.2 onto a hosting account, but couldn't get it to work properly and finally corrupted it on my Qualityhost, deleted it and gave that up as a bad job.

    Then I bought a hosting and domain in Yahoo's small business setupup, but am also totally at a loss how to upload there and they don't seem to answer support questions. Their instructions would take months to read and understand, I feel, for a newbie to follow, anyway.

    I don't have the time left to do that.

    Do you know what WordPress charges for the business blogs you mentioned?

    If I can find their location and don't have to upload to some web site, I might be able to use that.

    Sounds like it could be the answer. Is it like WordPress.com, with no FTP uploading?

    Cheers,

  9. Please Read Me First Before Posting - Please read this. It explains the differences between wordpress.com and wordpress.org http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic.php?id=3700

    WordPress.org does not host blogs. You misunderstood raincoaster. The blogs she referred to are running free wordpress.org software. FTP uploading is required. The bloggers either are able to self-host on their own servers or they have hired web hosts. Web hosting is not expensive. Those in business don't hesitate to spend a little money to enable them to make much more. http://wordpress.org/hosting/

  10. If you want a hosted version, but can't set it up yourself, GoDaddy.com has Linux hosting plans that come with all sorts of apps, including WordPress, that can be installed with the click of a button (pretty much).

  11. Thank you everybody, for explaining it all too me. I appreciate your patience.

    Abbydonkrafts, I do have some domains in GoDaddy and some are even in Linux there.
    Shall investigate it, as it can't be more difficult, to me, than Yahoo.

    Thank you again, for your time.

    Maybe I'll just do a series of non-commercial stroke articles here, later. I suppose a resource box at the bottom with a link to more stroke articles on a web site, would be acceptable. That will be later though.

    Cheers,

    Ray.

  12. You're welcome and happy blogging. :)

  13. Trent.. that wasn't an affiliate link. That was a subpage link. I navigated directly to it from the front page. I linked the subpage so that he could see the plans directly, including the anchor part that jumped to the comparison tabs. Go ahead. Try it yourself. Hover over the "Hosting & Servers", then choose "Personal, Small & Med. Businesses"

  14. @Greycap1: Your general cluelessness with Web Publishing does not confer on you any entitlement to publish commercial blogs on WP dot com or to spam these forums. Either get a pro in and pay him/her accordingly or RTFM.

  15. He only did two posts and doesn't seem nefarious. Cut him some slack.

  16. My daughter created a blog for me about a week ago, and I'm really enjoying it, but I would like to change the wording in the header. Can you please tell me how to do that?
    Thank you.

  17. @mamabakes, see the second reply above from timethief.

  18. A guy sets out to spam us. Then when he gets pulled up he says *he is only on a pension*. So what? Why do old people think that is an excuse for everything they do. Its just a guilt trip for everybody else. Plenty of bloggers are very poor but they dont make a big deal of it.

  19. @atthe404
    Did you notice that clicking greycap1's blog link above produces this message "This blog has been archived or suspended for a violation of our Terms of Service" ?

  20. Thank you! I am so new to this, it's a little overwhelming. But I am loving the blogging world! Lot's to see and do.

  21. @mamabakes, you are welcome, and happy blogging!

  22. I didn't publish that first post from attthe404. Gremlins at work. Wierd. I think I know how it happened and I am on the war path.

  23. Good grief! I'm shocked.
