Are you looking for a way to add H1 tag for your WordPress title on the home page only? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to add H1 site title only on home page in WordPress.
All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s header.php file or in a site-specific plugin:
<?php is_front_page() ? $title_tag = 'h1' : $title_tag = 'div'; ?> <<?php echo $title_tag; ?> id="site-title"> <a href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/"><?php bloginfo( 'name' ); ?></a> </<?php echo $title_tag; ?>>
