Page titles showing up TWICE under header... HELP! (6 posts)

    Help!! I have spent 3 days looking for an answer with NO luck!
    Please visit my website to see what I'm about to ask for help on.... http://www.cristalcreative.com
    All the page titles are showing up twice, (besides on the home page).
    I am a major noobie and do not know code very well.. So I will definitely need some Laymens terms on how to fix it.
    I don't know if this matters (and it probably does) I changed some code originally for two things. 1. I wanted all the comment boxes to go away. and 2. Because my homepage/site title was showing up above the header (Cristal Creative) and I wanted to remove it.
    So, that being said... PLEASE, why are my titles showing up twice? And how can I stop that? IDEALLY I wouldnt need titles at ALL... I would just write my own title in the header of the page post.
    Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelp!

    You could edit your page template code and remove the heading output but you could also just as easily hide it through CSS. Add this to your style.css file:

    h1.entry-title, h2.entry-title {
        display: none;
    }

    open page.php from your working theme directory and check if u have this line twice

    the_title();

    If u find it written twice then just replace it with

    //the_title();

    dgwyer: where would I input that in the style.css file? I tried inserting it in the header section and it didn't work, I'm still getting a double title.
    Santosh: the page.php file does not have that line written anywhere. It doesn't even have the word title... Ugh! How frustrating...

    More help, more ideas??? (If I need to input code, I would have to know where to put it... again, I'm a major noobie! Thanks!)

    Seems like you have fixed this. Could you post what you did to fix your problem and mark the post as resolved? Thanks.

    OMG.... I wish I could tell you dgwyer but the thing is, I didn't do anything. I'm starting to wonder if this was some glitch. I changed absolutely no coding.... So I am stumped. I signed on today to show my friend my problem and the problem was resolved. The gremlins of wordpress.org forum must have fixed it... thanks gremlins!
