Hi everyone, How do I get my site title to appear beside my logo? Do I need to change my site theme for that? I've tried going into the appearance customization but could not find how to do it.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Yes, definitely create a logo the way you want it to be and you won't have to worry about trying to make two things do one. You're going to get a headache, so save yourself the time and stress by creating an awesome logo. That image you have will go great with some text and Canva is definitely a great place to get it done.

Hey John,
Thanks and nice to see you again. I've tried what Marion suggested but the theme resizes it and makes it unreadable.
Take a look if you can at www.ahealingweed.com

I think it's fine to be honest. I do think that the background needs to go though as that is what makes your header harder to read.

Good point John,
I changed it. It does indeed make things better but I will keep searching for a way to make the text bigger.
Good night.
Thank you

Did you try using Canva? You can pick whatever size you want on there.

The problem is the theme that automatically shrinks whatever size I create and I am not sure how to change that in the code. I will probably end up changing the theme

Go to canva.com and create a new header image which includes your logo and site title.

Hi - I don't know how to solve your problem, but just as an aside, your site is not secure. You need to switch on your SSL Certificate using Site Manager.

Some themes have more options than others. While most of them that I know have the option to put both logo and title, it can be difficult to manage them the way you want.

From WordPress, you should go to customize, then Site identity. There you will see options like in the picture.

Write your title and upload a logo and they should appear in your site.

Note: UNCHECK little boxes if you want title and tagline to appear on your webpage.

Dalibor Thanks for the quick reply. Let me try that out and see. Not sure if it looks the same as on your pick.

www.ahealingweed.com is my site and you can see that the empty space beside my logo should have the title in it.
Will keep you posted.

The image below is what I get, no check mark for hiding or unhiding the title.
Does that mean I may need to change the theme? I don't want to play with the theme HTML code...

And if you remove logo does title appear than?

Yes, it would. Because I remember it used to be there until I added the logo.

Then it could be your logo is too big. Try making it smaller. Play a bit with the size of your logo and see when will title show.

Suggested logo size should be 350 by 70 pixels.

OK, let me try that.

Made logo 100 x 99 but the result is the same. It removes the Site title from the header

Perhaps this theme doesn't support both title and logo at the same time. I don't know what other option could it be beside that one.

You can experiment with a different theme in a live preview. And once you find one you like, you can change to it, if you want.
