How to Hide a Page or Post Title in WordPress

Hiding a single WordPress page or post title might be useful for the appearance of your website. But, do you know how to configure this correctly on WordPress? Do not worry, we will show you how to in two ways!

Methods to Hide a WordPress Page or Post Title 

Why hide a WordPress Page or Post Title?

Hiding a page or post title has the following benefits:

  • Avoids visual redundancy – If you have pages that are for specific purposes, like Landing Pages, you do not need to add a title for it. The image or call to action of the page can already tell your website visitors what the page is about.
  • Not necessary for static homepages – In some scenarios, static homepages show a title for the page. This may not be needed because viewers can assume that the page is a homepage.
  • Not aesthetically pleasing – This is true for many e-commerce businesses when they have pages that direct to a selection of items. These businesses may also have a custom layout that may not need the title to be displayed.  

Now that you know the importance of hiding a page or post title, let us discuss each method to configure this WordPress activity on your website.

Inspect the style sheet

This allows you to see the html code of the page where you can identify the CSS class of the title. The CSS class varies on the type of your theme, so therefore, it is important to check it.

Theme Style Class name

Go to Appearance from your Dashboard menu and select Theme Editor. On the right side of your screen, click Stylesheet (style.css). This section covers how your website looks.

Enter this code at the bottom of the style.css edit page (“entry-title” is our CSS class name): 

.entry-title {

   display: none;

} If you have a different CSS class, change the “entry-title” part of the code to its appropriate one. Click Update File at the bottom of your screen to save the changes.
