Hide Widget Titles when you need to

There are times when you need to hide a widget title from the front of your site while keeping it visible in the Admin area. A good example is when you have a slider or image banner you want to display.

WordPress does not have the ability to disable your widget title, so people are left with only a few options:

  • Don’t add a title to the widget – Makes it difficult to know what a widget is when closed.
  • Create custom CSS to hide the widget title – Required you to use HTML code.
  • Use a plugin that hides your title for you – The best solution

One plugin that we recommend is called “Remove Widget Titlesby Stephen Cronin. A quality plugin and very easy to use because all you have to do is add an ! exclamation mark right before your title.
