What is the Site Title widget?

The Site Title widget is a dynamic widget that automatically pulls the site title. Although the title can only be replaced or deleted in the Elementor Site Identity settings or WordPress Customizer, this widget gives you additional control over design aspects such as font size, color, and alignment.

Common use case

Sarah is creating a website for a fashion blog. They want to ensure that the site title reflects the trendy and stylish nature of the content. In the WordPress Customizer, Sarah sets the site title to Chic & Trendy Style Blog. 

But Sarah finds that the default presentation of the site title doesn’t quite match the aesthetic she’s aiming for. So Sarah uses the Site Title widget on her homepage. With this widget, they customize the design aspects of the site title. Sarah increases the font size, changes the color, and adjusts the alignment to center it on the page.
