Hiding Your WordPress Pages With CSS 

Hiding All Pages

The first method for hiding your web pages is by adding CSS.

Head on over to WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Customize. In the left-hand menu, click on the Additional CSS section. 

Then in the blank text editor, add the following code:

.page .entry-title {
display: none;
additional cssadditional cssadditional css

Finally, click on the Publish button. All of the page titles on your WordPress pages should now be hidden.

Hiding Specific Pages

If you want to hide specific pages on your WordPress site, you need to find the page id and then add the CSS code. 

To find the page id, go to the page for which you want to hide the title in the WordPress Dashboard > Pages > All Pages. From the list of pages that pops up in the main section of the dashboard, find the page you want to add. 

Under the page, hover over the Edit link, but don't click it. The bottom of your browser will now display the page id. The page id will follow post= in the URL. 

Once you have this number, you're ready to add it to the CSS code.

Go back to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS. Add the following code with your specific page id number:

.page-id-3 .entry-title{

Replace .page-id-3 with the ID of the page for which you are trying to hide the title.

Click on the Publish button, and the page title for that particular page will be hidden. 

Hiding Page Titles With Third-Party Plugins

Another way to hide page titles is with a plugin. We'll be using the free plugin, Hide Page And Post Title.

After you install the plugin, go to Pages > All Pages in the WordPress dashboard. 

Click the Edit link under the page that you want to hide. Next, click the Settings button and scroll down to the Hide Page and Post Title section. Finally, click the Hide the title option.
