WordPress Settings for Vantage

There are a few WordPress settings that play an important role in how your Vantage enabled website works. We’ll go over those here. More info on WordPress Settings can be found in the WordPress Codex.

To get to WordPress settings, go to the left sidebar menu and click Settings.

General Settings

Site Title

The Site Title is displayed in the title bar of a web browser and is displayed in the header for most themes. Your Site Title will also appear in the following locations:

Your site title can be anything you’d like; it doesn’t have to be the same as your blog’s URL or your username. You can use a cleaned-up version of your URL (e.g., myawesomeblog07 can become My Awesome Blog), or change it to whatever best reflects your site’s personality and topic. Note: No matter what you change your site’s title to, your address remains the same.


A tagline is a short phrase or sentence that states what your site is about. This is like the slogan of your site and is often funny, creative and eye-catching.

This option allows people to sign up as a member on your site using the WordPress user function.

Note: Your member/WordPress user permission settings still apply. Example: If you have it so an admin must approve a member this will still happen even if you have the “Anyone can register” option set
