    I am using the thesis theme and all my pages have a title at the top that for static pages that say: Home page, about us, contact us, how do you remove this?

    A link to your site would help.

    That's your navigation menu! If it's not there, how will visitors move from page to page?

    I dont want o remove the navigation menue, just the name at the top of each page. For example if you click on about us it says : About Us at the top of the page. I need to get rid of that.

    Ah! That page heading is actually quite important from an SEO perspective, so what I'm about to suggest won't remove it but will hide it from the visual display in graphical browsers whilst leaving it available for non-visual agents such as Google.

    Edit style.css and add to the bottom of the file:

    .headline_area {
    	position:absolute;
    	top:-1500px;
    	left:-1500px;
    }

    Hi

    I want to have the page headings for all the pages except the home page. How can I remove just the heading from the home page?

    Thanks

    Edit index.php and remove the link and reference to <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Post <?php the_ID(); ?> - permanent link"><?php the_title(); ?></a>

    the above method would work only if your homepage is your posts-page.
    Otherwise you'll have to create a new page template and do it.
