After reading this post - http://wordpress.org/support/topic/145855 I think this advise is useful to me, but doesn't quite answer my problem; how to hide the page title only on the home page of my site.
I tried substituting the word 'forum' in the post with 'home' (the title of my home page) but it doesn't work. I guess this is because when viewing the home page it doesn't appear in the address bar as [site url]/home/ but as [site url].
How would I go about using this coding solution to resolve this issue?
Hope this makes sense!
Thanks in advance,
