Help with blog title issues

  • I’m having two issues with my blog – prettybythebay.com

    First, the template I’m using shows the blog title above the custom header. I have done some initial research on how to make this disappear (specifically, following this advice: http://wpthemepark.com/2007/07/09/how-to-properly-hide-the-title-of-your-blog.html). Didn’t work for me. The theme does not have something as simple as a button to “Hide Title” – it appears to be something that must be altered in the code. Suggestions? I’m using the theme called PrimePress.

    Second, I initially tried to solve this problem by not listing a title in WordPress – and, as commonly happens, the blog would not show up in Google reader when I tried to subscribe. It said title was unknown. I’ve since re-added the title, but does it take time for Google to recognize the change and register the name?

    in your style.css add at the end:

    #branding h1 {text-indent:-9999px;}
    #branding p {text-indent:-9999px;}

    that leaves the title still available for google, but shifts it from the screen.

    if the white space is too large at the top, optionally also add:
    #branding {height:50px;}
    for instance 50px, but you can adapt that number to create the white space you like.

    Did you try approach #2 on that link? it’s pretty easy to locate that in header.php in your theme.

    Acrane, I saw that but it said that might not make your blog searchable?

    alchymyth – wow, it appears that did the trick. so this should make the title searcable by google standards?

    many, many thanks.

    OK, now here is another weird thing: now, the blog title appears twice in the broswer bar, like this: Pretty By The Bay pretty by the bay. Ayeyayeyae. Why?

    I just made in CSS (font size 0 pixel):

    .header-title {
    font-family: Verdana;
    color:#ff0000;
    font-size:0px;
    font-weight:normal;
    padding: 108px 0 0 48px;
    text-align:left;
    }
