    Hi, I am trying to post my new site (www.wordonthewildside.co.uk) made with wordpress into facebook. However the status feed just states my URL (being: http://www.wordonthewildside.co.uk) and then ‘just another wordpress site’. I changed the tagline in my general settings a few days ago, and its still saying this. Its really bugging me, as I was going to use facebook to market my site, which will be pretty hard if I have that terrible tagline on it. Any ideas!? Your help will be greatly appreciated, and I will be able to get some sleep! :)

    You are posting to the w ong support forum and have to post to http://wordpress.org/support/ as yours is a WordPress.org install and we only provide support for those who have blogs being free hosted by WordPress.com.

    go here > Settings > General and delete the existing tagline or add one of your own
    click “save changes”

    That will continue until Facebook decides to clear thie caches. It will also appear in Google SERPS (search page results) until you publish more content and push it down the page. ( Please don’t post here agin. This isn’t a WordPress.com issue and there are other WordPress.com bloggers who need help.)
