An incredibly frustrating issue with the WordPress platform is that it's difficult to rename without digging around in the theme files. While other page titles can be modified using various hooks, I have yet to find an easy way to override the forced title "Blog" at the top of the posts page selected under the Appearance > Customize > Homepage without some JavaScript-y magic, so I've created this quick plugin that will - when activated - simply use the actual title of the page that you specify. Why this isn't always the default action is beyond me, but with this plugin, it can be.

Instructions:

  • Download the plugin here.
  • Upload the Zip file to your Plugins section in WordPress.
  • Activate the plugin.
