Support » Fixing WordPress » Can not get blog title to stop displaying

  • I am having the infamous “I can’t get the blog title to stop displaying in the header” problem. I added

    #header h1
    {display:none;}

    to the stylesheet of SpashleyU.com, but it does not seem to be working. Anyone have any other suggestions.

  • yeah, instead of hiding it with CSS, actually remove it from your template.

    Look for <?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?> in header.php in your template folder.

    Tried that also, actually delete everything in the title line, and it still shows up. I can’t figure out where the little bugger is hiding.

    I really wish they would include a check box for “Do not display”

    Sorry, but you’re clearly not doing something you should be doing.

    <div id=”hode”>
    <h4>SpashleyU.com</h4>
    </div>

    This is the section of HTML generated by your template which displays the URL in your header. Find this “hode” in your template, and remove the whole section.

    In your template it will appear with the PHP tag I mentioned earlier, not the actual URL.

    Also, don’t touch the <title> tags… those are not the droids you’re looking for.

    Okay, I went into header.php, and at the very bottom I found:

    <div id="hode">
    <h4><?php bloginfo('title'); ?></h4>
    <?php bloginfo('description'); ?>
    </div>

    I deleted that entire section… it’s still showing up. This is beyond frustrating at this point. -sigh-

    Here is the actual “hode” from the stylesheet.

    #hode {
    	width: 400px;
    	color: #ffffff;
    	height: 170px;
    	text-align: left;
    	clear: both;
    	margin: 5px;
    	padding-top: 10px;
    	padding-left: 0px;
    	padding-right: 0px;
    	padding-bottom: 0px;
    	background: transparent;
    }

    I’m open to using a voodoo doll at this point.

    seriously, if you deleted that whole section, it shouldn’t still be there!…

    um… excuse me for asking, but once you deleted it, did you upload header.php to the right place on your site?

    … I don’t get why it’s still there if that section is gone/

    I edited it in the theme editor inside of WordPress and clicked “SaveChanges”, just as I do with any other swap out I make. I swear, it is deleted!

    Excuse me, “Update File” is what I clicked.
