    When I go to the blog, short description that I have defined in the general settings does not appear. I see the title of the home page next to the name of the blog, but not the short description appears.

    How I can fix it?

    (I mean the short description appears on the top navigation bar, next to the name of the blog)

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    I’m guessing you’re referring to this page. When using a page to display the blog archive, the content for that page doesn’t show, unfortunately. This is pretty common in many themes because some special customizations need to be made in order to make this happen. WordPress treats that page differently than normal pages, which is why the content doesn’t show.

    No. I mean http://www.ceskfreixas.cat (main page and generic). The problem is that in the top bar of the browser window does not appear short description of the page, which in my case is “Lloc web oficial del cantautor català”. In search engines (like Google) and in the top bar of the browser, does not appear the short description of the page. What is the problem?

    WordPress.com handles how the title and description are shown on search engines and on the page. In most cases, I believe the page title and content are used. I don’t think there is a way to customize this on WordPress.com, unfortunately.

    The problem is that a few weeks ago there short description (in search engines like Google and in the top bar of the browser window), and not now. A few weeks ago disappeared the short description (“Lloc web oficial del cantautor català”) and rather now appears the name of the page I have marked as principal (“INICI”). What is the problem? Can I change it?

    I know what happens. When the main page (in read-options) is the latest entries, short description is displayed. When the main page is a chosen page, and page of entries is another selected page, the short description is not shown. Why?

    (short description = tagline)

    That is how WordPress.com has things setup. If you’d like a more detailed reasoning, it might be helpful to post your question to the General Support forums. From there, a WP.com staff member with more insight may be able to better answer your question. They might also know of any changes behind the scenes that may have been updated. I don’t believe there is a way to change this on WordPress.com.
