    You can also do the same thing by editing forum_list from:

    It would still show on the browser tabs right?

    This is just to remove the e.g. XenForo Community from the forum list view: http://xenforo.com/community/

    Between the top breadcrumb and the first category/node.

    Why don't we remove them all. what's the reason to leave the empty <xen:h1> tag

    Brogan XenForo Moderator Staff Member

    Removing the tags altogether will actually result in the title appearing again.

    You need to have empty tags to stop it showing.

    But you have to keep doing this every upgrade right? (after you revert the template)

    You only need to revert if the template is outdated.

    Not all templates are changed between releases.

    I dont like removing a H1 like the forum title for SEO reasons.
    So in forum_list I hid the title by changing the font color to the default background color like so

    <xen:h1><FONT COLOR="fcfcff">{$xenOptions.boardTitle}</font></xen:h1>

    I would suggest this to be optional in admin prefs, since it's hardly necessary to have the board title both in the browser window, header (logo) and above the forum index.

    It's penalized by Google (cloaking) so I don't recommend it.

    I will edit my post when/if Google ever penalizes me for hiding a single h1 tag, I wont be holding my breath though.

    Maybe it will hurt your position in Google a little and you won't notice. I wouldn't do it, anyway I also want to remove that h1 and make the logo image.

    I'm going to try to modify the template and then I'll post it here.

    Nothing but upward motion in google rankings for me, which actually surprises me as I thought that I would need a more established forum to see this much love from google (might put this down to good forum software :))

    If I do this will it effect my SEO search results?

    Thanks for this. I knew I had seen it somewhere but couldn't find it last night but now have it in my sights and done.

    Your time and effort is greatly appreciated.
