    How do you get rid of the title home on the main page but keep all the other titles for your pages there. Is there something you have to change in your page.php?

    I use a plugin called WP Title 2 to do that kind of thing: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-title-2/

    That might get done what you need to get done.

    Right. So using WP Title 2, when you're on the page that you're editing in admin, the second Title Box that you see (right below the one that says Home now) should have a space in it. If you leave that second title box blank, nothing will happen and you'll continue to see the word HOME as your title on the page.

    Just add a single space to that box and update the page.

    I tried what you said and I'm not sure if I'm doing it right because the Home is still there..

    First you have to install that plugin, if you haven't already.

    Once that's installed, you'll notice that you now have two Heading boxes that you can use when editing a page in your admin area.

    The first Heading box should hold the title of the page (the home page will have the word Home, the about page will have the word About, etc.)

    The second heading box is blank (by default)

    If you want no title to appear on the page, all you have to do is add a space to that second box. (As in, hit the space bar on your keyboard one time, kind of space.) Then update the page. You should now see that your page has no title on it. The word home will no longer appear.

    or,

    find the CSS element for the title, and add this property to it:
    text-indent: -999em;

    alternately, you could also add the following property:
    display:none;
