    I am showing the name of the person I am working on this site for, Kevin, on the homepage at the top in H1. I would like to remove this. Is there any way to accomplish this? I have looked everywhere I can think of.

    Also, on the bottom of the page is links for an RSS and I would like to remove these but as with the H1 at the top of the page I cannot see anywhere to remove them.

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Did you happen to add his name to the site title or site description, or do you have an idea how his name got inserted? Please post a link to your site so we can see why his name might be showing up.

    Yeah, his name is in the title. But the complete title is not showing.

    Anyway the link is http://kevin-test.site90.net/

    Thanks for the reply!

    OK, now I understand. You probably used his name as the title of the page that you are using as the static front page, but you don't want the title to show up.

    Go to Appearance > Swift Design Options and click on User CSS. Copy & paste this into the User CSS field, and make sure the checkbox labeled Check this box to enable CSS is checked.

    body.home .entry-title {
       display: none;
    }

    Click the Save Changes button.

    I didn't see a link for an RSS feed, did you already remove it?

    I did get the RSS removed. I went into the footer and removed it there.

    Not sure if that was the best way or not but it did work. I probably got that completed right before you got there because I haven't had that accomplished for long......

    But the CSS you provided worked perfectly, thank you.

    I went into the footer and removed it there.

    In general, changing the theme files through the theme editor (Appearance > Editor) isn't recommended. If the theme ever gets updated because of a feature enhancement or a security patch, then you will lose your changes. Best practice is to create a child theme and make your changes to a copy of the footer file. However, since your change is very minor and doesn't really impact the functionality of the theme, it should be OK. Just be aware what might have happened in case it pops up in the footer again sometime in the future (depends upon how often a new version gets released).

    I will keep that in mind.

    Thanks for everything!
