I need to change my site tag line. Basically, this is school site we create for xyz higher sec school and ABC Nursery school; so I need to add both as a tag line in my site if I use xyz higher sec school I can't be able to use ABC NURSERY for those particular pages.

I need to change tagline for around only 6 pages; kindly suggest me for that.

    If I'm understanding correctly it sounds like you will need to create a child theme, and instead of outputting the site tagline for certain pages, you'll need a conditional to output the other wording you want to appear there. – WebElaine Jun 1 '20 at 13:26
  • yes obviously correct – Arumugam G Jun 1 '20 at 13:40

If your theme is using the WordPress site tagline, you should be able to filter it. get_bloginfo( 'description' ) will call get_option( 'blogdescription' );, and we can filter the value of an option using the option_{$option} hook.

Let's suppose, for this code sample, that you want to change the tagline on 3 pages, with the titles Kindergarten, Nursery School, and Babysitting.

add_filter( 'option_blogdescription', 'wpse368031_change_tagline' );
function wpse368031_change_tagline( $tagline ) {
    $pages = array( 'Kindergarten', 'Nursery School', 'Babysitting' );
    if ( is_page( $pages ) ) {
        $tagline = 'ABC Nursery';
    return $tagline;

Try adding this code to your active theme's functions.php file.
