[resolved] Remove "Page Title" from appearing on the page (7 posts)

    Hi there,
    I'm fairly new to WP, so I'm sorry if I sound wet behind the ears.
    I've got some pages on my site that I don't want the "page name" to appear on. For example, http://bananischool.org/wordpress/contact/
    I don't want "Contact Banani" to appear there before the little HTML box thingy..
    Can anyone help me with the CSS code or PHP code I need to use on this page?
    I'm using the Academica theme from Proudthemes, if that makes any difference.

    Thanks for any and all help,
    From Zambia,

    This is a premium theme and you can ask for support there...

    Anyway, inside the theme file page.php, search for <?php the_title(); ?> and do something like:
    <?php if( !is_page( array( 42,'about-me','Contact' ) ) ) the_title(); ?>

    Note that the array can contain any number of pages, and you can use the page's ID (42) or slug (about-me) or title (Contact).

    Other than that, you should really ask for their support, as the theme code may be complex or hard to guess.

    I'm using Museum Core as my theme...

    I've checked the .php files and haven't been able to find the 'the_title' to delete or comment out as suggested in a number of posts.

    Ant ideas? Or am I just missing something?!

    Hi there,
    As I mark this topic as closed, I'd just like to mention how I "solved" the issue. I built a custom_field called "hide_title" and applied it to the pages where I wanted the header hidden.

    We made it so we can add a custom field that you can set to "1", and functions.php will then add a body-class like body.hide_title, so that we can add some generit CSS to hide it, instead of cluttering style.css w/ body.page-contact, body.home, etc..


    // Add hide_title custom field support
    function banani_body_class ($input) {
    if (get_post_custom_values('hide_title')) {
    array_push($input, "hide_title");
    return $input;
    add_filter('thematic_body_class', 'banani_body_class');
    body.hide_title h1 {
    display: none;
    body.hide_title .entry-content {
    padding-top: 0;

    @mikepiff, thank you, this is a clean and flexible solution!

    To make it work with twentytwelve, use:

    add_filter('body_class', 'banani_body_class');

    instead of

    add_filter('thematic_body_class', 'banani_body_class');
