If you’ve even written a blog post or page in WordPress and wanted to hide the title for one reason or another, you’ll find this post helpful.
In this post I’ll show you how to hide your page or post title in WordPress.
Hiding page titles is something I’ve been doing for a few years now. When running a website, there are times when I feel like displaying the page title is either unnecessary or just plain ol’ unattractive.
I find the ability to hide titles to be especially useful for landing pages.
I actually think it would be great if this were an option within the WordPress page or post editor. It would be nice if we could see something like this in the future.
Because my theme is built on Genesis, I’ve been using the Genesis Title Toggle plugin to hide my page titles. However, this plugin can only be used for Genesis blogs. If you’re using Genesis, I recommend checking out the Genesis Title Toggle plugin.
If you’re not using Genesis, there’s an option available for you called Hide Title. Hide Title allows you to hide the title of your page or post from within the page or post editor.
How to Use the Hide Title Plugin
1). To use the Hide Title plugin, search for, install, and activate the Hide Title plugin.
2). When you go to create or edit a page or post, you’ll have a new option in your editor labeled “Hide Title.”
It will look like this:
3). Check the box “Hide the title on singular page views,” in order to hide your page or post title.
One thing you should know is that the Hide Title plugin hides the title on singular pages only.
What this means is that when it comes to your blog posts, the titles will show on your blogs homepage and archives, however, they will not show once you have clicked through to the blog post (that would be a singular page).
