Delete page title from page (9 posts)

    Anyone know how I can delete the page titles from appearing at the top of my page in the center post section?

    They take up too much space and seem unnecessary.

    A link to your site might help...

    You do realise that, by removing them, you will also be removing possibly one of the most powerful SEO tools on your pages? Search engines give extra weight to the text associated with first (highest) heading on each page.

    Ok, makes sense, but let's say I want to just remove it from one page, the HOME page? Is that possible?

    And actually, because this is a blog, most of my blog posts have titles which I of course have no intention of removing. I only have a few actual "pages", and the titles are not really important for SEO.

    Try adding:

    div.post-headline {display:none;}

    to your theme's stylesheet.

    Here is my CSS Stylesheet, with the line you suggest adding:

    /*
    Theme Name: Atahualpa
    Theme URI: http://wordpress.bytesforall.com/
    Description: Version 3.4.1 - Atahualpa is a WordPress/PHP/CSS Framework that lets you build your own unique, professional and browser-safe WordPress theme: 1-5 columns, fluid or fixed width, rotating header images and over 200 theme options. Tutorials, downloads and support at the BFA WP Forum
    Version: 3.4.1
    Author: BytesForAll
    Author URI: http://forum.bytesforall.com/
    Tags: white, one-column, two-columns, three-columns, four-columns, fixed-width, flexible-width, custom-colors, custom-header, theme-options, left-sidebar, right-sidebar, threaded-comments, sticky-post, translation-ready
    */

    .aligncenter {
    display: block;
    margin-left: auto;
    margin-right: auto;
    }

    .alignleft {
    float: left;
    }

    .alignright {
    float: right;
    }

    div.post-headline {display:none;}

    Unfortunatley, it does not seem to have made any changes to the style of the website, particularly with respect to the page titles. They still appear as before.

    Any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!

    If you're using Atathualpa, just insert
    display:none;
    in the theme options for Header Box: Text:
    Appearance/Atahualpa theme options/Style POSTS & PAGES

    This allows the title to display in the page menu, but not on the page itself.
