How to change the site name and tagline in SilverStripe

In this tutorial you will learn how to change the site name and tagline in SilverStripe.

To make the changes, follow the steps below:

Step 1 To change the "Your Site Name" and "your site's tagline here" messages in the header of your site, you should edit the Page.ss file located in your SilverStripe's directory > themes/<theme_name>/templates.

For example, if you are using the default BlackCandy template, you should edit the file themes/blackcandy/templates/Page.ss.

Step 2 The two lines in the Page.ss you should edit are:

<h1>Your Site Name</h1>
<p>your site's tagline here</p>

Let's call our site "My Test Site" and put "my site's test tagline" for tagline. Thus the above code should be changed to:

<h1>My Test Site</h1>
<p>my site's test tagline</p>

Here's how our test page would look with the new site name and tagline in the header:
