Support » Fixing WordPress » Location of the title on a “page”

  • I’m using the “Write / Page” function to create a page. But the page title always appears at the very top of the page. I’d like to have a navigation bar go ahead of the page title. Is there a way to cause the page title for this page to present below my navbar? I tried removing the title altogether; the slug still gives the url an identity, of course, but there’s no page title at the top of the browser.

  • Does your theme come with a page.php template? You could edit that to remove <?php the_title(); ?> from it, move it to where you want it located, and so on.

    Thanks, Kafkaequi. I’m using a turn on the Kubrick theme. Thing is, I want the title to be in a different location only on some pages, but not on others. Any way to deal with this?

    Yep. Create a custom Page template with the “title mod” you’re after, then assign the template to those Pages you want displaying the title differently:

    Many thanks. I guess I’d been avoiding getting into page templates without quite realizing it. Your patience is appreciated, believe me.

    Just one more thought, though: the method of creating a new page template works just fine; the only thing is that I’m going to have to multiply the page templates a lot. What I really would like is the ability to cause a new input box to arise in the Write / Pages screen — e.g. an empty <div></div>. As it is, I have to hard code my menu into my template (to get it above the page title) and need a different template for each nuance, let alone each different menu.

    I wish I knew (some, any) PHP, because I suspect that it wouldn’t be all that hard to create.

    Anyhow, thanks again for the useful help.
