Page titles showing up TWICE under header… HELP!

  • Help!! I have spent 3 days looking for an answer with NO luck!
    Please visit my website to see what I’m about to ask for help on…. http://www.cristalcreative.com
    All the page titles are showing up twice, (besides on the home page).
    I am a major noobie and do not know code very well.. So I will definitely need some Laymens terms on how to fix it.
    I don’t know if this matters (and it probably does) I changed some code originally for two things. 1. I wanted all the comment boxes to go away. and 2. Because my homepage/site title was showing up above the header (Cristal Creative) and I wanted to remove it.
    So, that being said… PLEASE, why are my titles showing up twice? And how can I stop that? IDEALLY I wouldnt need titles at ALL… I would just write my own title in the header of the page post.
    Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelp!

  • You could edit your page template code and remove the heading output but you could also just as easily hide it through CSS. Add this to your style.css file:

    h1.entry-title, h2.entry-title {
        display: none;
    }

    open page.php from your working theme directory and check if u have this line twice

    the_title();

    If u find it written twice then just replace it with

    //the_title();

    dgwyer: where would I input that in the style.css file? I tried inserting it in the header section and it didn’t work, I’m still getting a double title.
    Santosh: the page.php file does not have that line written anywhere. It doesn’t even have the word title… Ugh! How frustrating…

    More help, more ideas??? (If I need to input code, I would have to know where to put it… again, I’m a major noobie! Thanks!)

    Seems like you have fixed this. Could you post what you did to fix your problem and mark the post as resolved? Thanks.

    OMG…. I wish I could tell you dgwyer but the thing is, I didn’t do anything. I’m starting to wonder if this was some glitch. I changed absolutely no coding…. So I am stumped. I signed on today to show my friend my problem and the problem was resolved. The gremlins of wordpress.org forum must have fixed it… thanks gremlins!
