Hello attempting to remove the title from static front page using the following code is (not working) in my functions.php

    function remove_page_title() { if (is_front_page() )
      add_filter( 'the_title', '__return_false' );

IS there something missing? Thanks in advance

PS I know I can hard code it in to my page template with

<?php if(!is_front_page()) { ?><h2><?php the_title(); ?></h2><?php } ?>

but I'd rather not change the template

How about hiding the title with CSS?

.entry-title {
  display: none;
  • a good fallback solution thank you but am really after a php solution to learn. Thanks again though
