How To Prevent The Page Title From Displaying

Last Update: November 14, 2017

Have you found this to be annoying you?



I have tried many times to get this hidden as it is unnecessary to display it. Once again I have found the answer here at WA. In the following post by Janice Bowles - How To Remove The Title From My Page In Wordpress, she mentions a plugin that works for page titles (not for blog titles though)

I have just downloaded it and installed in on a couple of my websites. It works a treat! Go into Settings and select the option to remove the title from all pages and hey presto no more titles on display.

This plugin has not been updated for a while but I have just used it for Wordpress 4.8.3 and the following themes - Dejiru and Omega. I suspect that it is a simple tweak to do so the plugin will probably work for many updates to come.

Hi, Robert, you shouldn't need a plugin to hide the page title. In Omega theme bring up your stylesheet and scroll down until you see this:

/* Headings
--------------------------------------------- */
.entry-title {
font-size: 36px;
word-wrap: break-word;
line-height: 1.2;
Copy and paste it into your child theme or custom css, whichever you have, and add the following: "display: none;" (without the quotes) under .entry-title { then click update, and refresh page.

There should be something similar in the Dejiru theme. Hope this helps.

Greetings Harry,

Thanks for that code I will keep a note of it. But I try not to mess directly with the CSS sheet. It is all too easy to mess it up. But there may come updates when the plugin doesn't work anymore so the code will come in handy.

Hi Robert, you don't need to mess with your stylesheet. In Omega dashboard click on Appearance>Customize. Now click on CSS in the customizable list. Copy and paste the code I've already given into the new window, make the necessary changes and click Update CSS.

By using Custom CSS you can dispense with the plugin and no need to worry about it becoming incompatible with any further WordPress updates, and won't affect your parent stylesheet. Hope this helps
