how to hide page title in wordpress

Are you wondering how to hide page title in WordPress? By default, WordPress themes display the title in every post and page. But there are times when you want to remove the title:

  • You have a landing page where you don’t need a title
  • You need to remove the title from your homepage
  • With the help of a page builder, you want to display a custom title instead of the default one

Whatever the case may be, it is possible to remove the title of your page.

And in this tutorial, I’ll show you the step by step process on how to hide the page title in WordPress, with or without the help of a plugin.

I’ll also explain how you can easily remove the title of the page if you’re using the Elementor page builder or popular themes like GeneratePress, Astra, or OceanWP.

Let’s get started.

How to Hide Page Title Using a Plugin

The easiest way to hide or remove the page title is to use a plugin. And you’ll find many plugins that can do this job for you.

One such plugin is Title Remover.

It is a free plugin with 100,000+ active installations and works perfectly with most WordPress themes. And you can use it for removing the title of any post or page with a single click.

Let me show you how to use it.

First, you need to go to Plugins -> Add New from the left sidebar and then, search for the “Title Remover” plugin using the search box. Once you find it, you should install and activate the plugin.

Next, head over to Pages -> All Pages and then click on the page whose title needs to be removed. This will redirect you to the page editor.

Now you’ll have to find the option “Hide Title?” on the Document Settings panel, present on the right side of your screen.

Finally, check the “” box to hide the title of that page.

That’s all! You can now update the page to save the changes.

How to Hide the Page Title Without a Plugin

Say, you want to remove the title of just one or two pages on your WordPress site. In such cases, you may not want to install a plugin.

Also, some users don’t like to use a plugin for every problem.

The good news is there are 3 ways by which you can hide the title of a post or page without using a plugin. Let’s check each of them.

1. Don’t Add a Title

Sounds crazy, right?

Yes, you can keep the title field blank and this will serve your purpose. However, this method is NOT recommended for two reasons:

#1. WordPress adds (no title) to those pages whose title is kept blank.

If you have two or more pages without a title, it’ll be difficult for you to understand which page is for which purpose.

#2. If you keep the title field blank, the meta title of the page will also be blank. This is not good for SEO as search engines display the meta title in the search results.

Also, WordPress will use the page ID in the URL slug in such cases.

However, you can solve the above by editing the URL Slug field.

Also, if you are using an SEO plugin like Yoast SEO (or Rank Math), you can add the meta title in the SEO title field, present in the Yoast meta box.

2. CSS Method to Hide the Title

If you’re a DIY user, then you can use a bit of CSS to remove the title of a single page or all the pages on your website.

Let me show you how to do it.

Note: Don’t forget to backup your site before making any changes

Step 1: First, you need to find the ID of the page.

The easiest way to get the page ID is to open the editor for that page and then check the address bar of your web browser. The page ID will be sandwiched between “post=” and “&action” in the URL.

You may follow my tutorial on how to find the page ID for detailed instructions.

Step 2: Go to Appearance -> Customize from the left sidebar of your admin panel to open the theme customizer.

Step 3: Click on the Additional CSS tab and then add the following code (replace XXXX with the ID of your page):

.page-id-XXXX .entry-title {display:none;}

use css to remove the wordpress page title

And finally, click on Publish to save the changes

Want to hide the title of all the pages on your website? In that case, replace the above code with the following:

.page .entry-title {display:none;}

While most themes use “entry-title” class for the page title, some themes may use a different class. And in such cases, the above code will not work.

However, you can find the title class by opening that page on your browser, then take your mouse cursor over the title, right-click on it, and click on Inspect.

inspect title element

This will open the Developer Tools. Now check the class name in the code:

find the css class

In the above example, the Hestia theme is using the class “hestia-title” for its title. So go to the Theme Customizer now and replace entry-title with hestia-title if you’re using that theme.

Similarly, you can find the CSS class of the title in your theme. However, you may contact your developer (or ask me in the comment section) if you need any help.

3. Use Themes Having the “Hide Title” Option

Many themes like GeneratePress, Astra, and OceanWP have an in-built option to remove the page title.

So you can easily use them to hide the title of any page you like.

You can also use the Elementor page builder with your existing theme as it offers a feature to remove the page title.

In the next few sections, let me show how you can use the Elementor page builder or themes like GeneratePress, Astra, or OceanWP to disable the page title.

Let’s dive in.
