I have noticed that when you hover over a tab on a website you get a nice meta description of someone's site in their <head> <title>???<title> area.
Am I right in thinking there is no preset field in Genesis (Minimum Pro) to fill this in, and I will have to edit the functions.php file?
Hi Chris. Are you talking about how the title of your site shows as
www.chrislines.net, rather than words?
To fix that, you can either go into Settings > General and set a site title and tagline, or you can go into your Genesis SEO settings and set a custom title.
Yes, that's exactly what I'm talking about.
The Site Title & Tagline under Settings>General doesn't achieve this.
Which particular field in Genesis SEO settings are you referring to? Nothing in the 'Homepage Settings' section of Genesis>SEO Settings works?
It looks like you entered a title, but not a tagline. The title you entered is showing up properly when I look at your site, so I don't know what you mean that it's not achieved.
Well a strange things happened. For months I had a Title and Tagline entered, but only http://www.chrislines.net showed up when I hovered over a tab.
Then yesterday I cleared it all out, entered the title again and that is what you are now seeing when you hover over the tab 'Chris Lines - Game Composer'.
But what happens if you what a fully descriptive site title for SEO purposes, but you don't necessarily want that showing up on my home page?
Eg I might want my 'hover tab description' (for want of the correct wording) to read 'game composer for indie developers' but I might not want this exact wording to appear as my title on my home page.
Upload a Header Image I guess is one solution?

That's where you want to use Genesis SEO settings. The field is the Homepage Document Title.
And the crucial bit is to *untick* 'Add site description (tagline) to <title> on home page?' in that section.
Then the Homepage Document Title kicks in.
