I'd like to hide the header on my homepage (the <h1 id="pageContentTitle" .. > element.) I could use some CSS like

#pageContentTitle{ display:none; }

But because my CSS is referenced in the master file, this effects all pages on my site, where I would like to only change one.

I've also considered using some jQuery:

    return $(this).find('a:contains(Home)').length;

Which works, but has issues. Firstly the header is displayed momentarily until the JavaScript is executed, secondly this still needs to run on every page which seems like overkill.

I would have thought this would be quite a common desire so was hoping to find an option in the Page Settings but couldn't find anything yet.

Is there a better way of doing this?

Add the following CSS and reference it from your masterpage:


#aspnetForm[action*="Home.aspx"] #pageContentTitle {display:none;}

  • Brilliant, the form scope is what I needed. Thanks.

You can easily add a content editor webpart and add in your CSS in the HTML editor.

Or you can add your CSS to a text file, then using a content editor webpart, you can reference that text file and it will include the css in that page.

  • I've tried your suggestion, and it works, but since the content editor webpart is presumably loaded after the page load, my title still shows up momentarily before being hidden.

  • It is inevitably going to show for a split second before the css hides it.

  • Sure, because the CSS is dynamically loaded. I thought there may well be an option provided by sharepoint so as to not include the header altogether. I guess not.

  • When I try this SPO removes the css code from my content editor.

you can edit the page directly using sharepoint designer, then add your snippet of code directly, it will break the page definition... but that normally isn't a big deal.

  • I did try that yes, but like you said I got complaints about the page definition. Should I not worry about this warning?

You could edit the page in SharePoint Designer, and add the CSS to the page.

    You need to add more detail about how to do it.
