Can't Hide Menu Name v.3.7.2

Postby Compositeur » Sun Jun 11, 2017 12:24 pm

My main menu has pretty buttons, but the text 'Main Menu' appears above these.

When I set menu settings so as not to show menu name, and I refresh the page, I still get the words 'Menu Name' appearing above the buttons.

My settings are shown below.

Please can any clever person tell me what I am doing wrong? :-\

Thanks in advance.

Does the page say "Home" or "Main menu"? Because you wrote it says "Main menu" and in the screen shot, it says "home".

Also, did you try to empty your cash?

Hello AlohaYoga

It says 'Main Menu', and yes, I have cleared the cache. - Same problem.

Found my own solution!...

You have to edit the module that the menu is in, and not the 'menu' itself. You can do this via Manage menus though...

1. From the main top administrator menu in Joomla's back-end, go to Menus>Manage
2. On left, click 'Menus'
3. A list of your menus will appear. In the 'Linked Modules' column for the menu whose title you want to hide, select the name of the Menu with its position (yes I know it sounds weird, but just do it).
4. A popup window 'Edit module settings' will appear. In that window, top right, under 'Show Title', select 'Hide'.
5. Bottom right, click the 'Save and Close' button.

Job done. :D
