Thanks for your help in this old thread, but I have a question about what you said here:
Alternatively, you can disable the title using the “Disable Elements” metabox on the page, and then add your H1 to the content.
Since this discussion is (sort of) about SEO, I want to inform everyone reading this that if you use CSS to hide the automatic H1, then create your own H1, you are making one h1 visible while there are still two h1s on the page (from the search engine’s perspective).
Tom, can you tell me if there is a way to find the relevant file, then clone it into a child theme and remove the h1 entirely? That way I can create my h1 in the place where I actually want it to be and have it say what I actually want it to say.
