sorry i didn't see this earlier, but to make a template page, just make a copy of the page.php and i named it "home.php" but you can name it watever
copy all the code from page.php to your new page and include "template name: watever you want" at the top:
* @package WordPress
* @subpackage Pretty_Spots
Template Name: home page
then scroll down and remove this under the content section:
<h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
then save. go into your page editor in the wp-admin page and select the template page, watever you named it. you can use that template for any pages that you dont want the title name included.
let me know if that works for you, or if you have any more questions.
