Hello Community,

when using SilverStripe the first time, the headline is:

"Your Site Name"

I think there has to be an option existing which allows to set my site's name.
Please tell me how to find this :?:

It depends on the theme you have chosen. The easiest way is to do a search across your folders for "Your Site Name" and you'll be able to find the exact spot where it's being picked up. Just change it to what you'd like your site name to be. This is not done in the CMS (although that would be more elegant).

This makes sense, but I am using Windows Search to search for "Your Site Name" across all my folders, but there are no search results.
I am using BlackCandy by default, can somebody tell me the place where I can change the headline?

If you working " blackcandy" , you can go to themes/blackcandy/templates/

You will see code "


<div id="BgContainer">
<div id="Container">
<div id="Header">
<h1>Your Site Name</h1>
<p>your site&#39;s tagline here</p>


you can edit " Your site name " of you and save !
