To display the tagline on your website place the following code within your template file where you want to display it.

<?php bloginfo( 'description' ); ?>

Note : The above code will output i.e. echo the tagline. If you want to return the tagline to store it inside a variable, use the following code,

<?php echo get_bloginfo( 'description' ); ?>

    Also love how your posts are quick and to the point. This one’s a classic – question though, don’t we usually need to echo out “get” functions? So wouldn’t we use “echo get_bloginfo(‘description’)” instead?
