  1. Hi guys,

    First post and probably a dead giveaway that Im a real beginner when it comes to anything web. Apologies in advance !

    I have installed the gallery child theme and wish to have a title and description for my main page but cant seem to find a way to edit this. I read something about H1 title and can find this in the functions.php but not sure what to do with it.

    Ive also tried using this information:

    Scroll down to: Adding meta to <head> but with no luck.

    Any help is really appreciated.

  2. Could you please tell me if you need to add an on-page title (<h1>) or meta title and description (<title>, <meta name="description" />)?

    To setup keyword and description meta in the Thematic template, simply add the following code into your child theme functions.php. And don't forget to insert your keywords! ;)

    function child_meta_keywords($description) {
    $keywords_meta = "\t" . '<meta name="keywords" content="Your keywords go here!" />' . "\n\n";
    $description_meta = "\t" . '<meta name="description" content="Your description goes here!" />' . "\n\n";
    $child_meta = $description . $keywords_meta . $description_meta;
    return $child_meta;
    return $description;
    add_filter ('thematic_create_description','child_meta_keywords');
