What is the Custom Site Generator option for? Is this regarding the screen that comes up when you go to create and add a new sub-site, does this fill in the blanks with this default,or is this something else?

    Hello Robert,
    I hope you’re well!

    The Custom Site Generator actually customizes the content of the automatically inserted generator meta tag, which is used by search engines when indexing your website. So it will change it on your new sub-site as well, but it's not a mandatory option.

    By default it looks like this:
    <meta name="generator" content="your_WordPress_version" />

    When you enable the Custom Site Generator, the generator meta tag starts looking like this:

    <meta name="generator" content="your_brand_text" />

    You can check this in your page source code.

    I hope this information has been helpful. If I can help you in this or other questions, please let me know!
