Hide Page And Post Titles In WordPress: Understanding What It Means

Not every page on your website needs a title. While titles are required for blog articles, they don’t necessarily look good on other sites. What works well for a blog isn’t necessarily appropriate for the rest of the website.

For example, putting a “Home” title on your site is superfluous and may appear amateurish. Similarly, your “Contact” or “Product” page should speak for itself, and putting the title at the top may be unnecessary.

Most of the time, you don’t even want to remove the title – maybe it’s simply its location or theme design that bothers you. If your page title is in an unusual location or does not match your design, you may conceal it and put an H1 heading instead.

This title is shown at the top of most WordPress themes. A detailed, relevant title can help visitors know they’ve arrived at the appropriate page and what to anticipate. Titles can be useful, but not every page or post requires one. One common example is the homepage of your website.

At times, you might wish to display the page title in a separate section. For example, you might begin your category page with a captivating banner and then display the headline farther down the page.
