I have a Custom Page Layout and I have placed a Content Editor Webpart to display some introductory text. I want to hide the title as there was this chrome type property in webpart which appears blank and cant set it to none.

If I remove the title text it appears as UNTITLED. now what to do?

  • didn't got you. Why Chrome type none is not helping you?? – Varun Verma Jul 10 '14 at 8:54

If the chrome type does not help you, you can just add a blank space as title. Just tried it out and it works. It's a ugly way to do it, but it works.

  • It is not showing properties of Chrome Type..just the heading "Chrome Type" and under that there are no options..this is weird. – user342944 Jul 10 '14 at 8:59
  • It's really weird. Are the web part modified in any way? Does the options show on the CEWP in any other site collection? – Christoffer Jul 10 '14 at 9:02
  • Please attach a screenshot – Varun Verma Jul 10 '14 at 9:08

  • Looks like you are using a custom masterpage / css.. when you are editing the webpart, use F12 developer tools where the dropdown should be, and see if there's any missing element or so. – Christoffer Jul 10 '14 at 9:15

if you want to do programmatically, put FrameType as None in webpart properties, it will help.

  • FYI for SPO users landing on this page, this option does not seem to exist in webpart properties for SPO sites. – TylerH Mar 16 '20 at 16:21

Edit the web part and set "Chrome type" to "None". http://www.isacantx.org/SharePointTraining/TrainingPages/HideWebPartTitle.html

If it does not work or if you wanna do grammatically, then in the Page_Load() of the webpart, add below code.

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

((System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.WebPart)(sender)).ChromeType = System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.PartChromeType.None;


It worked for me.


I was having the same problem, but if you simply change the drop down under "appearance" to "none", click OK and then save the page, it will then disappear.

  • worked for me and by far the easiest answer – Anthony Oct 25 '16 at 19:19

You can always hide that html element with CSS
