Duster Theme double headers?

  1. hi there. i'm new to adapting themes. here's my issue. i'm a neat freak and duplicate labels drive me nuts.

    see how on this page there is a black bar indicating i'm on the 'about' page? why the heck does the theme repeat this information immediately below in a huge font? i want to get rid of the latter. can someone help me?

    thank you!

    The blog I need help with is aprojecttobenamedlater.wordpress.com.

  2. Hello there,
    Please allow me to be crystal clear. If you are a person who is into editing themes and templates and/or tweaking and hacking them you will not be happy on this multiuser blogging platform. Here on free hosted WordPress.COM all templates underlying themes are shared by all blogs using the same theme. We cannot access those files and edit. Only Staff can and every edit they makes affects all blogs wearing the same theme.

    I suggest you read this entry carefully and consider whether or not you can accept the limitation here on free hosted WordPress.COM or if you would prefer to hire a web host and self host a free install from WordPress.ORG

    The tab in the top nav menu doesn't have to be the actual page title, so here's what you can do:

    Edit the pages and delete their titles.
    Go to Appearance>Menus and create a custom menu. Select your (now nameless) pages from the Pages module, click Add to Menu. Click the arrow at the right side of each page module to open it, type the title in the Navigation Label field. Click Save Menu, select the menu from the Theme Locations pulldown, click Save.

  4. @panaghiotisadam, this is the perfect fix. thank you.
