[resolved] Hiding selected page titles in Origami (8 posts)

    I would like to hide or delete (preferable hide), the page title on my static home page in Origami. I have tried using a custom field as described on a couple other threads, without results. It would be great to be able to do this from page to page, or even across the board, but at least on my home page. It is just a matter of aesthetics. I prefer not to have the title so featured on every page when it is already right there on the navigation bar. Some pages it seems appropriate, but some not.

    You can probably hide the titles on specific pages using CSS -- but the particulars depends on your site/theme. Can you post a link to it and which pages you don't want the titles to show?

    my main concern is my home page so, for now, i will stick to that.
    thanks for the help.

    Okay, you should be able to hide it by adding this CSS:

    .home h1.entry-title.noinfo {
       display: none;
    }

    But you should not make changes in theme files -- but rather use a child theme or custom CSS option or plug-in. That way, your changes won't get overwritten when the theme is updated. So once you set that up, add the above code to the new file/location.

    ok. i still haven't learned how to create a child theme just yet, (just started learning a couple weeks ago on this) but i assume that when i upgrade this page to premium, which i will do today, it will give me an option to change css. that will be my first option.

    if not, any tips on creating the child theme? what do i do as far as not only creating, but saving? i'm unclear as to how these things work together. does the child replace the parent, or work with it?

    if this topic is better on a new thread, i understand.

    If you upgrade the theme, there's a chance your changes will be erased if they've not been made within a Child Theme or Custom CSS plugin.

    wow. just updated and added the css. worked great! thanks very much!!

    one more quick question. do you notice a slight shift in the page from home, or any other pages, to and from the "about" page? why does this occurr? i have noticed it on many other themesi have tried. no shift from home to gallery or the others, but a shift from any other sites to about. is it because of the added content?

    thanks much for the help.
