Tips for using the Site Title block

To place the block, you can use the block inserter or you can type /title to access a shortcut.

The site title block uses an H1 heading by default. You should use one H1 on every page, remember that if you already have an H1, you need to change the heading level.

The Site Title block does not have toolbar options for bold or italic. Instead, you can change this in the block settings sidebar under Typography > Appearance.
It also does not have options for inline images, editing as HTML, or highlights (inline colors).
