    Hi! I would like to add a site description below site title in the eleven40 theme without cutting off the tagline area below. Also hoping to be able to edit the site description font style independently of the site title. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks! -Dustin

    Essentially hoping to move “Certified Personal Trainer” below my name and customize font styles for both title and description. Not sure if adding site description will mess things up for mobile?

    Dustin, I wrote a tutorial to do this for you since it involved a lot of steps.

    Thank you!

    I applied your suggestions (see my website). But what I wanted to do was leave the quote (or tagline as defined in the theme settings) where it was and to just move “Certified Personal Trainer” below my name (creating a site description below site title) with independent font stying options for both lines. Here’s a example:

    http://sridharkatakam.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/custom-header-right-content-on-page.png

    Basically, “Supports HTML5 &…” would be “Certified Personal Trainer”. The header might extend into the quote area, so there would need to be a solution to move everything down below appropriately. I may have totally misused the terms so my apologies for any misunderstanding.

    That information on Sridhar’s website is pulling from your tagline from the Settings page. I provided you the instructions on how to do that. I will leave my tutorial for someone who may benefit from it. Maybe another developer can provide you with another solution that matches what you really want.

    I played around with the settings a bit more and can defintely benefit from your tutorial :) I do however just need a bit more assistance or instruction on getting the quote (“We commit…”) to look like it did originally, same as the original theme layout. I updated my site content for reference, right now things are shifted around a bit. Thanks again for your time and help!

    I was trying to assist you but your theme keeps changing. What are you trying to do now?

    Sorry! I was double checking to make sure I wasn’t missing something. It’s back now, you’ll see what I mean. I didn’t add anything outside of your tutorial :)

    Add this to the Welcome Text. Something doesn’t look right in there because I only see 1 double line and not the 2 double lines

    margin: 40px 0 0;

    Added. There appears to be maybe extra line(s) around the footer?

    Here’s the studiopress demo template again if needed for reference – http://demo.studiopress.com/eleven40/

    Check your CSS and make sure you have all the semi-colons in place. I have a conference call to get on now for two hours. I can check back in after that.

    I started over and tracked results after each step of the tutorial. Before I started the “Now you need to Hook it!” step I only noticed a styling issue with the header/banner cutting off main content below as I increased the font size of the site-description (“Certified Per…”). But after entering the following code…

    /** Add the welcome text section */
    add_action( 'genesis_before_content_sidebar_wrap', 'custom_welcome_text' );
    function custom_welcome_text() {
       genesis_widget_area( 'welcome-text', array(
           'before' => '<div class="welcome-text widget-area">',
       ) );
    }

    …things begin to get strange (ex. new lines near footer, styling issues). All code has been double checked. In regards to the widget, I’m using/activating a Text widget in the Welcome Text.

    Also noticing when the window size is reduced “Certified Personal Trainer” is aligned left, this is the same for mobile.
