Remove Home Header

Postby digiPixel » Sat Nov 26, 2011 10:10 pm

Have a big problem with the Home header appearing whenever the user navigates to the home page. After looking at other templates it seems as though this is a problem with Joomla 1.7.

Is there is a way to remove the Home header with the Beez5 template? Might be a bit messy but I am very much stuck on how to do this.

Go to the Beez5 template index.php. Remove <img alt="Logo" src="/joomla-17/templates/beez5/images/fruits.jpg"> or change it to your own image.

What I meant was that the Home title is showing (it is represented by a HTML H1 element).

Try going to your Beez5.css file line 91 - h1#logo. Add a {display: none;} property

Hiding the element via CSS had no effect.

If you have not yet done so, I would recommend that you download and use the Firefox plugin Firebug. This greatly simplifies the process of finding css code. Firebug will tell you the name of the css file and the line number of the element that you want to change. You can also make changes on the screen to see how that change will look before you make the change in the css file.

Already had Firebug installed. Found the relevant CSS for the Home title under #main h1 in beez5.css. Adding in "display: none;" resolved the issue.

I'm glad to hear that you were finally able to solve the issue. Firebug is a great tool.

Now that you have solved this, please go back to your original post. At the beginning of the subject line, add the word [SOLVED!] and the green circle check mark.

An easier way to remove the Home from the page is go to the admin back end. Go to Menu Manager/Edit Menu Item and select Home.

Under Page Display Options, select No for Show Page Heading. You can also add a Browser Page Title that does not need to be the same name as the menu.

Remove Home Header [SOLVED!]

Couldn't find the equivalent of an Edit button for editing the first post. Instead I have posted a reply to change the subject line. Strange, I can edit all other posts I have made except for the first one.

Magic! Thanks so much. I used the back end option :)
