    How do you edit the HTML of a Wordpress blog?
    And if that isn't possible, how do you add a meta tag?

    I'm trying to monetize my Wordpress blog with plugrush.

    You can edit the HTML of your theme by going to /wp-content/themes/your-theme/header.php

    But you shouldn't edit the files to add meta tags. Look through several SEO plugins, find one that suits your needs (almost all will allow the modification of meta tags, but to what degree depends on the plugin), then just install it.

    1. Download the Theme
    2. Unpack it
    3. Edit it
    4. Repack it
    5. Install your modified Theme

    Easiest way is to modify them in your header.php

    Cleanest way is to add them to your functions.php:

    Code:
    function headerscripts() { ?>
    <meta tag1 />
    <meta tag2 />
    <meta tag3 />
    <?php
    }
    add_action('wp_head', 'headerscripts');

    You can just use an SEO plugin as I mentioned, since you don't have direct access to the files. All of them will let you edit meta tags.

    Yes I know, but the thing is, I can't seem to find the drop down where you add plugins.
    I created my blog at Wordpress, but I can't find where you install plugins.
    I'm sorry, but I'm new to this, and I have been searching on Google for a while now.
