Remove Page Title problem

First, I want to say that the support here has been incredibly useful and thorough.  All my issues have been fixed one-by-one and I'm even learning a little about code.  Thanks!

One more issue:

I enabled the 'Remove Page Title Completely' option under 'general display settings'.  This also made the 'forum' link on my topbar drop-down menu go blank (handtoolwoodworking.com>for chairmakers>forum).  I have now disabled that option, but is there a way to remove the forum page titles without making the menu item go blank?

Hey Elia,

Glad you are happy with the support, we do our best!

As for the page title, can you enable 'Remove Page Title Completely' again, but then go to Forum > Integration > Page and Permalink and under 'Integration Options' can you check the option 'Filter WP List Pages' to see if that helps?

I just enabled ‘Remove Page Title Completely’, then went to ‘Integration Options’, but the ‘Filter WP List Pages’ was already checked.

Can you also try turning 'filter WP list pages' off. The option is really there as a fix for a long standing WP problem which doesn't affect everybody.

Same problem either way.  Elia

OK, well they were the easy choices!

Firstly it's worth noting that displaying the page title is a standard WordPress function and really isn't a Simple:Press issue - Essentially it's doing what WordPress should. The reason I'm saying this isn't to wash our hands of it, just to inform. It seems like something to do with your nav menu / theme / menu plugin or whatever you are using isn't behaving in a usual way as this works for the majority of people who use this option, so going off instances of this in the past there are two immediate options:

The first one is to create a custom page template for your WP theme. You can remove the call to the_title() and use it for your SP page. You should also do this as a child theme for your WP theme to make sure you don't have to make the change again every time the theme gets updates. For this we might not be able to offer the same level of support as we do for SP so you may need to contact the theme authors if you need any help. Of course you're welcome to ask questions and we will try and answer where we can.

The second is a bit more of a quick fix solution. You could try adding a display: none; rule to your forum themes stylesheet. You'd need to put it back the way it was so we could tell you exactly what code to change but by the look of it you would need to add:

h1 .entry-title post-title { 
    display: none; 
}

This would be added to reboot.php, although again to preserve the change you'd need to make a Child Theme of reboot.

Any thought's on which way you'd like to go?

I understand it is not really your issue and I appreciate you willingness to help.

Let's try the quick-fix solution, as long as there aren't any major reasons not to.  I have checked ‘Filter WP List Pages’ and enabled ‘Remove Page Title Completely’. 

If you could tell me exactly where the file I'm changing is, that would be great.

No problem, I hope it works OK for you.

Since you already have a child theme setup (I think from previous topic) and assuming you used the Reboot child theme framework, you should already have the stylesheet ready:

sp-resources > forum-themes > yourchildtheme > styles > yourchildtheme.css

Try adding the code I posted above under the info text and be sure to click 'View Raw Code' before you select and copy it.

Please also give it a test to make sure it's not removing the page titles on every page.

Nothing changed, but I think I'm just going to let this slide.  This is a pretty minor issue all things considered.  Thanks for your help!  Elia
