    Hello, for starters I would like to clarify that I have tried to apply the advice from previous threads to no avail.

    My issue is trying to remove the page titles from the top of the page beneath the menu on my site: http://www.timhynd.net/
    So where is says 'Portfolio' on the Portfolio page I would like to get rid of that text. I am using the Showcase Template. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Start by creating a child theme for your customisations.

    Working on the child thing right now. Question: I want to upload my child template; but I have not been working with a local setup of files. Will my child theme be able to access the necessary information from the parent when I upload it?

    What I have to upload:

    /*
    Theme Name:     Twenty Eleven Child
    Description:    Child theme for the Twenty Eleven theme
    Author:         Tim Hynd
    Template:       twentyeleven
    Version:        0.1.0
    */
    
    @import url("../twentyeleven/style.css");

    Also I am not sure if there are any other files in particular I need to extend. Should I be creating a child for showcase as well? I have one just in case; but I wasn't sure what the import url should be. I have this:

    /*
    Theme Name:     Showcase Child
    Description:    Child theme for the Showcase theme
    Author:         Tim Hynd
    Template:       showcasechild
    Version:        0.1.0
    */
    
    @import url("../twentyeleven/showcase.php");

    Would it be best for me to work from a local setup? If so how do I go about setting one up?

    If created & uploaded correctly, yes. The basic child theme only needs to contain a style.css file. Once that is active and working, you can create a copy of the showcase.php template file in your child theme and start editing the child's copy to your heart's content. :-)

    Sounds good to me, once I've got it up and running do you know which part I need to edit to remove the page title?

    Thank you for all your help.

    Sorry - it's content-intro.php that you need to copy into the child. Remove:

    <header class="entry-header">
    		<h2 class="entry-title"><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
    	</header><!-- .entry-header -->
