by Elaine on July 15, 2013

When you view your Joomla 3.1.1 website frontpage, you might see this huge title that says ‘Home’ on it.  Sometimes it’s nice to let your users know that they are on the home page, but other times, it can be a little annoying.  You can either change the title to something else, or totally remove it from the top of your site.  This tutorial will show you how to remove the Home Page title.
