How to hide a WordPress page title

Need to hide a WordPress page title for your page or post?

By default, WordPress displays the title of every page. Page titles can be useful for drawing your user’s attention, as well, they provide a definite SEO benefit. However, there are times when you might not want to use a page title.

For example on a home page where the page title does not fit with the custom look you are trying to create. Or on a landing page where your goal is to draw attention elsewhere. 

Use a plugin to hide a WordPress page title

If you only want to hide the WordPress page title for a few pages or posts on your site, one option is to use a plugin.

To search the WordPress Plugin Repository, login to your WordPress installation, go to the Plugins page, then click on ‘Add New’ and search for ‘hide page title’

To install, click ‘Install Now’ then ‘Activate’.

Use your Theme to Hide a Page Title

If you are using a premium theme, the option to hide the title for a specific page or post may be included. These settings are typically found within the theme settings or in the meta boxes of the page itself.
