Hi just installed Silverstripe and cannot find out how to change the sites name and slogan any help would be appretiated.

I did find a referance in a file called page.ss but dont no for sure if this is the correct place to make changes.

Also If I change the color of some of the images will I have to flush the chache I was reading a tutorial and dont really understand how to do that.

The website URL is: www.thebrumbyshop.com

Thanks for the reply's.

to change the Site's name you will have to edit the template files of the blackcandy theme.

themes/blackcandy/templates/Page.ss

Thats the file.
