I’m using the non-premium version of SKETCH theme by WordPress. It’s a great theme but for some reason it won’t display the tagline. I’m guessing because the default colour is white? Is there a way to change it? Or do you have the premium version? If so, what’s the point in giving it as an option?
Some themes don’t include a visible tagline. Sketch appears to be one of those themes. I don’t know if it’s possible to add that using CSS, but you could ask your question in that forum. CSS editing would require a paid upgrade.
As ifmomsaysok mentioned, some themes don’t display the tagline, such as Sketch, to keep the design clean and minimal. You can indeed display it using custom CSS, which is available with the Premium or Business plan.
If so, what’s the point in giving it as an option?
The tagline is displayed in search-engine snippets and in the browser’s title bar.
