The setting in WordPress is where you can configure everything about how a blog works and functions.
WordPress provides two core APIs to make the administrative interfaces easy to build, secure, and consistent with the design of WordPress Administration.
The Settings_API focuses on providing a way for developers to create forms and manage form data.
The Options_API focuses on managing data using a simple key/value system.
The first setting that you will see is Site Title. The Site Title is displayed in the title bar of a web browser and is displayed in the header for most WordPress themes. Your Site Title will also appear in the following locations:
- Admin Bar – blog_menu, i.e (top left) when viewing your blog
- Admin Bar – main_menu, i.e (top right) when viewing the bogs linked to the account.
- My_Sites on the WordPress.com home page.
- Sender’s name when your followers receive notification
