Using the CSS editor:


.homepage #top { display: none; }

Also check through the style tweaks, your template author may have provided an option for the homepage to not display a title.

I don't set the roadmap and I can't talk about upcoming stuff. Answers aren't official, they're me helping out on my own time.

If you're going to do this consistently, take out the CSS and check the 'Options>Hide Page Title' tweak in the style editor. That will disable the title on all pages.

If you're going to do it on a per-page basis, you'll have to use the page id. This is found in the id attribute on the page's body tag. In the case of your 'Who We Are' page it'd be "#collection-509c3dd7e4b0b5d93ca20b69 #top"

Visually or structurally?

Visually. Here the title has been hidden but the space it took up is still in the flow.

.header-title {

  visibility : hidden;
  
  }

If I remove it structurally is it going to change my google search ?

Structurally is probably not the best term but I couldn't think of a better one. I'm trying to explain some complex stuff without going into all the deeper stuff.

When display : none is used it takes the element out of the rendering flow but the element still remains available but now not visible. Since the element is still available it can be put back into the flow by changing display again.

I don't know if Google ignores elements that have display : none on them and if it does how it goes into Google ranking.

I doubt Google is going to get confused about which site and page it is indexing. The site and page title are still part of the header information for your site.

For some reason this doesn't work for me. I am using the Impact template.

 

I want the top "The Social...." gone because it is redundant.
