    Hi!

    Use Able theme for my brothers site http://www.bogatov-anton.ru/
    And i have a little problem: too much H1 (more than 20).
    What is the siple way to make only 1 H1?
    May be you have PRo version with mor functions?

    Best regards,saintvittsdance.

  2. Hi there, could you explain in a bit more detail what you mean by "too much H1 (more than 20)"? Once I understand better what the issue is I'll be glad to see if I can help.

    May be you have PRo version with mor functions?

    Able is a free theme and there isn't a "Pro" version.

    There were to much h1 headings. Now i left 1 H1 on inner pages. For all titles i use H2 or H3.
    But i don't know how remove this: <nav role="navigation" id="nav-above" class="site-navigation paging-navigation">
    <h1 class="assistive-text">Post navigation</h1>

    This is on every page.

    Can you link to a page where this is abnormal, i.e you don't have 20 posts on 1 page?

    Link in the first post. Main idea of blog to show foto. If i show 10 posts on one page - there are 10 titles of post:
    <H1>: Post navigation
    <H1>: Москва. Новое время.
    <H1>: Выставка Москва глазами молодых 2013.
    <H1>: Московский парк Коломенское.
    <H1>: Зима в Коломне
    <H1>: Поздняя весна в усадьбе М.Ю. Лермонтова
    <H1>: Весна в Рязани
    <H1>: Летний салон МСХ
    <H1>: Мартовский день в Хотьково
    <H1>: Набережная в Коктебеле
    <H1>: 32 ежегодная молодежная выставка МСХ.
    <H1>: Post navigation

    I find all h1 classes in .php files and css, but i can't remove this:<H1>: Post navigation. It is located in js small-menu. I'm just do my first steps, so it's hard to me.

    For diagnostics i use seoquake plugin.
    Now, in sub level pages everythings look nice: http://www.bogatov-anton.ru/moskva-novoe-vremya/

    Why in your opinion is having this many H1 elements wrong?

    I find tis hint in a lot of places. When there are more than one h1 on the page it could be cause of pessimisation by seaching systems. Sorry for prob. spelling mistakes. But now i can try it in practice with this blog and after few updates i'll know for shure.

    I would suggest using another theme, something that's a bit old and uses HTML4. That's the easiest option you have.

    Who told you search engines prefer HTML4 over HTML5 btw?

    I tell about Titles (h1,h2,h3, etc). Search engines prefer not spammy sites (with 1 h1 title). Because there are a lot of sites that use H1 everywhere. And I have positive experience of wining in little seo wars using 1 h1

    Okay, but if the diagnostics plugin was telling you this then you should get a second opinion.

    No,no,no. Diagnostics tells me that on blog page (main page, there are 12 h1) and on sub pages there is only one(thats nice). So i need to leave only one (like highlander =)) on main blog page (may be only site title). Or there is antother decision: use another template, but this is working fast....

    If you want to change those, you'll need to create a child theme and then find where the h tags are output in the theme code - change those and also any corresponding CSS. It's not a quick/easy fix.

    WPyogi, now - yes! But in Russia we have Yandex. And this beast has his own taste)))

    I have checked all .php and style.css too. Proble in java script. Bub there is antother problem - i don't now js)))

  16. Putting aside the issue of whether multiple h1 tags on a page have a negative effect on SEO - since this is a controversial issue and this isn't an SEO forum :-) - the file you'd want to look at is content.php, lines 10-12:

    <h1 class="entry-title">
      <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a>
    </h1>

    As WPyogi said above, the best way to make changes to a theme is to use a child theme, so your tweaks won't be overwritten when updating the theme. Here are some guides in case you haven't made one before:

    Let me know how it goes.
