    Hi everyone,

    Sorry to bother you with such a basic question, but I've been googling for hours now to no avail.

    I tried custom CSS codes and I've just spent the last little while trying to create a child theme. The version of wordpress I'm using does not seem to allow it.

    If anyone can advise me of a custom CSS code to remove the page title from each page I would be incredibly grateful.

    If you have any advice on how to install a child theme with the latest version of wordpress too I would be very grateful. It does not appear possible via the dashboard and I don't know how to connect via FTP.

    My blog site is interactive.net

    Thanks in advance.

    seems to me that if you want to remove the title on a page, look at where it is generated, probably in page.php and single.php, or in index.php. should be fairly simple, use Firebug in FF to identify the specific code generating the page title.

    additionally, do install a child theme of this theme, lots of tutorials around on how to do this, and make any changes in the child theme. i.e. create a page.php or single.php template file in the child theme and only change it in the child theme to avoid blowing up your theme when the parent theme is changed and automatically updated.

    See this re: Child Themes http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    You DO need to get FTP access set up - ask your hosting company about that. It's important to have that set up for various troubleshooting steps as well.

    This CSS should work to hide the page titles:

    .hentry header h1 {
        display: none;

    EDIT - just noticed that your site is hosted on WordPress.COM - so you CANNOT make a child theme there - but if you have the CSS upgrade you can use the code above to do what you want.

    But you also need to be on their forums for help - not here as these forums are for self-hosted WordPress.ORG sites. So go here:

    Thank you! I can't tell you how grateful I am.

    The CSS you provided worked a treat.

    Just curious - is it possible to transfer my hosting from wordpress.com to wordpress.org? I'd love to install a child theme.

    Thanks so much again for your help, I really appreciate it.

    You're welcome!

    Yes, sure, people move from .COM to self-hosted sites all the time :)! Here's a good explanation of what's involved:
