SharePoint 2010 Hide the title and description from Ribbon

If you don’t like the nice title and description in the ribbon bar, you can easily remove or hide it. Normally the ribbon looks like this:

It has a logo, the title and the description. It also could look like this if you do some branding or customizing:

If you only want to display the logo you can choose between two options.

Option 1: Hide the title only on single pages

Option 2: Hide the title on all sites

Let’s have a look at Option 1. For this you just have to insert a Content Editor Webpart on the Page where to hide the title. Then you insert in the html source view the following code:

[sourcecode language=”css”]


In option 2 you have to deal with the SharePoint Designer and the master page. If you open your masterpage and look for the placeholder “PlaceHolderSiteName”, you wrap a div around it and set the style to display none. See below the extract from the masterpage which only displays the logo afterwards:

[sourcecode language=”css”]


Hope this helps.
