I looked in the header.php file and default values are given for site title and site description if they are not provided by me. However, when I change the site title and description in the admin panel nothing happens on the front end and the default values are still displayed. What is going on?
EDIT: I just noticed I cannot add text for slides, only image slide options are available. Even when I add an image slide nothing is displayed. It seems like many of the options in the control panel have no effect
