How to Hide a Component Heading in Joomla


People use Joomla templates as a way to manage their website content without needing to learn Web design coding such as HTML and PHP. This content management system (CMS) allows users to add content and modules to their website through the back-end, or administrative panel. Components add dynamic visuals to the Web design. They range from a simple search box to news feeds and image sliders. These components, also called modules, can be set with a heading or without a heading.

  • Log into the administration side of the website. You can reach this with most Joomla template websites by typing in the website address then adding /administrator to the end of the URL. You will need to know the user name and password.

  • Click on the "Extensions" button located in the top menu. A drop-down menu appears. Click on "Module Manager." This opens a screen that lists all the modules created for your website.

  • Find the module you wish to modify. Click on the module name to open it. The "Module (Edit)" screen will appear.

  • Choose "No" as the option for "Show Title" located in the "Details" box. This removes the heading from the component/module.

  • Save your edits by clicking on the "Save" option located on the upper right corner of the screen. View the updated Web page to see the changes. Once you click on "Save," the "Module (Edit)" screen closes and the module list appears.

  • Check your changes by clicking on "Preview" located in the upper right corner of the screen. This opens a new window with your website.

Tips & Warnings

  • Create custom modules by choosing "Custom HTML" when creating a new module.
