What to Do If Title Cannot Be Hidden

Note that if your theme is using a different class for the title, this option won’t automatically work and you will have to manually set it.

The default class for most themes is:

<h1 class="entry-title">Title</h1>

If your theme is using a different class, you’ll need to change the Page Title Selector.

  1. Simply “Edit with Elementor” any page or post
  2. Click the hamburger menu icon in the upper left corner of the Elementor Widget Panel, and click on Site Settings.
  3. Under Settings, click Layout.

Here you will see the Page Title Selector field with the description:

Elementor lets you hide the page title. This works for themes that have “h1.entry-title” selector. If your theme’s selector is different, please enter it above.

Now, add your theme’s selector for the title, and the hide title functionality should now work.

How Do I Know What Class Name My Theme Is Using For the H1 Title?

Visit your page in a Chrome browser, and then
right-click on the title to be hidden, choose
Inspect, and make a note of the H1 class name, which is shown in quotes, as demonstrated below.

If the class name is “abc-page-title” for example, then you would type h1.abc-page-title into the Page Title Selector in the Elementor > Settings > Style area mentioned above.
