How to Instantly Improve Twenty Nineteen’s Home Page

Twenty Nineteen will be the first official WordPress theme to be built with Gutenberg in mind, and it looks very promising. While it’s still in active development, there is one bothersome feature. You cannot hide the title of the page. That means if you want to replace the title with say, a cover image, you can’t. Not officially anyway. However, there is a simple tweak you can make to fix that.

There are actually 2 way to do this – with or without code.

Add this Tiny Bit of CSS

Adding these 3 lines to the “Additional CSS” section of the Customizer will do the trick (and probably work in more than just Twenty Nineteen):

.home .entry-header {
   display: none;

Here’s a GIF of the CSS in action:

Use the Title Remove Plugin

If adding CSS (or code in general) isn’t your thing, don’t fret! There are a few plugins to accomplish that. The one that has been most recently updated is Title Remover. It’s free on the WordPress plugin repository, and it gives you control over any post’s or page’s title, not just the home page.

That’s It!

So there you have it – 2 simple ways to really improve Twenty Nineteen’s home page and give you finer control over what you want the page title to display as. Will you use this tip? Is there another theme or plugin you prefer to use? Let us know!
