I am looking for a way to hide or get rid of the page title at the top left of each page. I do not want to use JavaScript to do so.

For clarification - I want to hide or get rid of the thing outlined in red here: enter image description here

  • Do you want to hide from all pages or one page? – Venkat Konjeti Jun 12 '17 at 15:52

You can edit your custom Master Page design file (.html file) and remove the Page Title Snippet.

You can search with keyword "pageTitle" and remove the related snippet.

Here is snippet you have to remove.

<h1 id="pageTitle" class="ms-core-pageTitle">
    <!--SPM:<SharePoint:AjaxDelta id="DeltaPlaceHolderPageSiteName" class="ms-core-navigation" runat="server">-->
    <!--SPM:<asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="PlaceHolderSiteName" runat="server">-->
    <!--SPM:<SharePoint:SPLinkButton runat="server" NavigateUrl="~site/" id="onetidProjectPropertyTitle1">-->
    <!--SPM:<SharePoint:ProjectProperty Property="Title" runat="server"/>-->
    <!--PS: Start of READ-ONLY PREVIEW (do not modify)-->Default Publishing Site<!--PE: End of READ-ONLY PREVIEW-->

  • This is definitely the best option - very little chance of corrupting your master page and also very easy to do. Just ctrl+f "h1" and you should immediately find the portion that you need to delete. – Mdomin45 Jun 12 '17 at 18:41
  • Yes. Every portion of the design file is a snippet which can be easy to manage. – Venkat Konjeti Jun 12 '17 at 18:43
  • Is there a way to change the navigation bar from the Master Page design file? I would like to make changes to the font-size and possibly even add pictures along with the text. – Mdomin45 Jun 12 '17 at 18:47
  • You can get a customized snippet using design manager and replace with one you have in your design file. But I recommend any design related changes manage with CSS. – Venkat Konjeti Jun 12 '17 at 18:54

If this needs to be removed on single page then drop the Content Editor Web Part and reference the CSS mentioned in that thread in your web part and that should do the trick.

For global changes you can edit your Master page and reference your CSS file in there.

<SharePoint:CssRegistration ID="HidePageTitleCSS" Name="PATHTOYOURCSS" runat="server" After="corev15.css" />

  • I DO NOT recommend trying this. If you add this snippet of code to the HTML page that updates your master page then you will break your site and you must revert to the working master page somehow. – Mdomin45 Jun 12 '17 at 18:22

This seems easy enough. Just add a Script editor web part in your page and add below script to hide the title.

<style type="text/css">
h1#pageTitle {
display :none;

  • Absouely, for all pages in your site, you can use in master page. Actually I have faced this scenario where I dont want to loose page title information for all pages in my site. So I did this page wise as and when required :) – DvG Jun 12 '17 at 18:47
