Hi experts,

I am just finishing my website www.freedomfighterclub.org and I would like to remove the post/page title field.

Its the part that says"———>>>>>Freedom Fighter Club – Slaying GURU’s for Breakfast<<<<<——–"

There is no option to do so within my theme. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Go to wp-content/themes/theme_name/ and open the header.php file, and inside it try to find the <title> tag, and inside the title tag you may find something that looks kinda like this:

<?php bloginfo( "name" ); ?> - wp_title()

Open in new window


remove whatever after the dash, and the dash itself. and that should keep the title, "Freedom Fighter Club" only.

Below is the title tag from the header.php.

No dashes - please advise.

<title><?php wp_title(' '); ?> <?php if(wp_title(' ', false)) { echo ' : '; } ?><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></title>

Open in new window

if you do this and it still not working, from your admin panel, go to: Settings -> General and change the Site Title to: Freedom Fighter Club

How does the below help??
go to: Settings -> General and change the Site Title to: Freedom Fighter Club

I want to remove the page title, not the entire site title displayed in google

The easiest way, is to simply not put a title in the title box.

If you try to publish a Page without a title, it won’t publish.

So the way to get around a Page not publishing is to first publish it with a title and then go back and simply delete the title

When you do this,  in your Admin area you get the (no title) place holder where your title is meant to go.

I have removed the title text but there is still a gap where the title would have gone.

Is there any way to at least reduce the height of the space where the page title text goes?
