  • Resolved table4five


    My blog is Table for Five, I have 2.1.2 and the 3K2 theme. My blog was showing up as untitled in Technorati, because I didn’t have my blog title in General Options. I have a custom graphic for my blog header, and I couldn’t figure out how to keep the title from showing.

    I read here that I should go into style.css, find the h1 for the header, and put display:none at the end of the line of code. But I must not be putting display:none in the right place, because it’s still there in the header. Could someone pretty please tell me exactly WHICH theme file and WHERE in that theme file to put the display:none? Thank you so much!

  • I assume you applied the “display: none” code in the wrong place. You don’t want it for your whole header only for the title!

    Rudolf, I was editing the post as you were commenting. I went through the stylesheet and found where I put in the display:none and took it out. So now my header shows up, but I can still see the title. Where does it need to go exactly? Thanks!

    Well, whenever not sure about a style… try this:

    In your case you’ll have to modify this:

    h1 { /* H1 is used for the title of your blog */

    (the comment is quite clear about it 😉

    In your CSS, look for #header .description. See how it says display:inline ? Try changing that to display:none.

    Also, in your CSS, the part that starts h1, h1a, h1 a:hover, etc., could have #header .description removed from it.

    Also, you really need to validate

    Rudolf-the thing is, that is the line of code that I changed, and it made my whole header disappear!

    jabecker-I know, I know, isn’t it bad?? But there are SO MANY errors, and I am so afraid I’ll screw it up even worse!

    I applied the suggested changes in FF using the CSS editor (Developer Toolbar) and it worked. So, I don’t know what to say…

    I went in to style.css, and took out the #header. description, and I changed display: inline to display: none. The title is still there in the header. What am I missing here? Thanks for the help!

    With all due respect but what the other poster suggested… just doesn’t make sense.
    Except the validation which is always good.

    Okay, second try. I went to style.css, found “h1 { /* H1 is used for the title of your blog */”, took out the underline and the hover, and now the title is still there but it just isn’t clickable. Rudolf, if you’re not busy, could you please help?? If you email me at, I would be willing to give you temporary admin access if you would please help me with this! It’s really bugging me!

    I didn’t say to delete anything. I thought it was clear that you have to add. The end result should be:

    h1 { /* H1 is used for the title of your blog */
          display: none;  <=== ADD THIS
    	font-size: 3em;
    	font-weight: bold;
    	letter-spacing: -1px;
    	margin: 0;
    	padding: 35px 0 0 40px;

    Oh sorry, Rudolf, that was my bad for not reading more clearly. I’m going to upload a fresh copy of the CSS and then I will add the display code. Hopefully it will work and then I will come back and close this topic!

    Fixed! Thank you so much!

    ok…it now shows up but still looks ugly! but hey, better than nothing. the issue was that i put the following tag

    <span style="display:none;">

    in the header.php file to hide the description. it looks like that tag is the tag of death for IE…

    Once I took it out…the blog showed up fine!
