Support » Fixing WordPress » How can I hide (not delete) my blog title?

  • Resolved Ashleyschnarr


    I haven’t been able to figure this out. I’ve created a custom header that already displays my blog name. How do I hide the blog title that automatically shows? I want search engines to be able to see it but not my readers.

    I’ve tried changing the CSS code and unchecking the “show title” option in the customization tool but I can’t figure it out.

    Thank you~

    We need to know what theme you are using and likely see your site.

    Have you tried doing it in the admin by going to


    and clearing out Site Title and Tagline (if applicable)?



    I don’t want to delete the title because that’s bad for search engines but thank for the suggestion.

    I’m using Genesis and Pretty Pictures child theme.

    There is still a lot of editing to do but here is the web address:



    Try adding this to your CSS:

    .header-image #title {
    position: absolute !important;
    	clip: rect(1px 1px 1px 1px); /* IE6, IE7 */
    	clip: rect(1px, 1px, 1px, 1px);

    If that doesn’t do what you want, I’d suggest that you ask StudioPress for help – as commercial themes aren’t supported on these forums – partly because we don’t have access to them, so don’t know how they are set up.



    #title a {
        display: none;

    should do the trick or:

    #title a{
    position: absolute;
        top: -9999px;
        left: -9999px;

    to style.css in your child theme.

    whoops just saw wpyogi’s reply which is probably best



    Great! That worked! Thank you so much!
