Remove blog title from wordpress form, but keep info in css

  1. Hi,
    I've uploaded a custom graphic which features my site's name in the graphic. So I'd like to remove the title as I entered it into wordpress' form asking me for the blog's name.
    However, I want to make sure the information remains in my css info so that it can still be properly indexed and picked up for SEO, etc.
    Can someone please help?? I'm using the Blaskan theme.
    Any help is greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!!!

    The blog I need help with is downthemiddleblog.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi, you can add the following to hide your site title via CSS and then enter it back in at Settings > General.

    #site-name {
    text-indent: -9999px;
    }
  3. Hi,
    Thanks so much for that!! It worked perfectly!
    However my blog description is not pushed way down. Could you advise on how to shift that upwards so it all fits together nicely?
    That'll be my last CSS question for a while I'm sure as after that I'm ready to start writing!
    Thanks again!!

  4. Add this to your custom CSS to reduce the white space (it was 30px):

    #header figure {
    margin-bottom: 0;
    }
  5. Hey there,
    Could I ask you just one more question? Thought I had everything hammered out but can't seem to figure this last one out. Is it possible for me to customize just the tagline of my blog on this theme? I'd like to make the text a little bigger and more prominent? I've searched for the answer online to see if I could discern the coding myself, but to no avail.
    Thanks so much!

  6. Actually I figured it out myself! See I told you I would start learning sooner or later :)
    Thanks so much for all your help!!

  7. Ok friend, I am back for one more caption. I have tried *everything* to figure out how to modify the color of the captions on my blog to no avail. I can change the border, padding, b/g color, etc. But no dice on the font color which seems stuck on gray. It's driving me nuts?
    Any helps, as always, greatly appreciated.

  8. Woops that was one more question...about captions.

  9. I'll let you pass with the additional question this time, but in the futureā€¦

    Just kidding, we are happy to help. :)

    This will do it for you (edit the red color as desired).

    .wp-caption p.wp-caption-text, .wp-caption figcaption.wp-caption-text {
    color:
    #CC0000;
    }
  10. Thanks so much! I think I've managed to find and incorporate the tweaks I've wanted but that one helped. How about this one?
    Sub-title to a post title? I've seen that there are plugins for this kind of thing. And I've scoured for the proper css coding to drop in, but to no avail.
    Thanks again!!! I love my blog!!

  11. This would be quite a job in CSS since you would have to create a post ID specific rule with the subtitle for each post that had a subtitle. You can try this code, which is for the "Sochi, Stoli, and Why Putin Just Likes to Ruin it for Everyone" post.

    #post-208 header:after {
        content: "This is a subtitle";
        color: #000000;
        font-weight: 400;
        font-size: 110%;
    }

    I would suggest putting the subtitle at the top of the post content and apply either h2 or h3 font style to it. If the spacing isn't quite right, you can adjust padding and/or margins to get the subtitle aligned the way you want it.

  12. That subtitle one seemed too tricky. I think I've put that one on the back burner for now.

    How about moving the date line to the bottom of a post instead of appearing on top.
