[Resolved] How can I hide (not delete) my blog title?

  • 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~
    ~Ashley

    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

    Settings->General

    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!
