Remove word “Articles” from Heading

We found these solutions:

1. From Elaine's blog:
"In Joomla 1.6, when you create articles they must be associated with a category and menu. If you created an article and you do not associate it with a menu, Joomla 1.6 will add an h1 tag with the text “Articles” in all articles accessed from a link in the search results of the search module. The same happens with articles linked from the Latestnews module, but in this case, the h1 text is “Home”.
This is extremely annoying and I’ve received many questions about this. The easiest way to fix it is to:

a. Create a Category to place all these ‘No Menu Articles’.
b. Create a Menu in Menu Manager.
c. Create Menu item and assign to Menu created in step b.
d. Assign Articles to the Category created in step a.

The menu does not need to be displayed, it will just act as a place holder for these articles so the <h1> tag with text “Article” and “Home” will not appear anymore.   For example:

I have an article “Wordpress Themes” that is showing “Articles” tag.  I will create:

  • Category called ‘NoMenuArticles’
  • Menu called ‘MyHiddenMenu’
  • Menu Item called ‘MyArticles’, category blog and link to the NoMenuArticles

Below are steps on how to do this:

1.  Login to your Joomla 1.6 administrator backend.

a. Create a New Category in Category Manager

2.  Click on Content, Category Manager, Add New Category

3.  Set the following values:

  • Title = NoMenuArticles

4.  Save & Close the Category.

b. Create a New Menu in Menu Manager

5.  Click on Menus, Menu Manager, Add New Menu

6.  Set the following options:

  • Title = MyHiddenMenu
  • Menu type = MyHiddenMenu

7.  Save & Close the the Menu

c. Create a New Menu Item in Menu Manager

8.  Click on Menus, MyHiddenMenu, Add New Menu Item

9. Set the following values:

  • Menu Item Type = Category Blog
  • Menu Title = MyArticles
  • Menu Location = MyHiddenMenu
  • Required Settings,  Choose a category = NoMenuArticles
  • Page Display Options, Show Page Heading = No

10.  Save & Close the Menu Item

d. Assign Articles to New Category in Article Manager

11.  Click on Content, Article Manager

12.  Edit your article, in my example I’m editing ‘Wordpress Themes’

13.  Set the following value:

  • Category = NoMenuArticles

14.  Save & Close the article

15.  Repeat steps 11-14 for all the articles that are showing the “Articles”/”Home” heading.

That’s it! You’re done.  Now you can refresh your Joomla 1.6 website.    Do a search on it or click on it from the Latestnews module and you will not see the <h1> tag ‘Articles’ or ‘Home’ anymore.

Another way to fix this problem is provided by Harshal:

1.  Edit this file in your FTP Manager – Components/com_content/views/article/view_html.php

2.  In this file earch and comment out below line.
// $this->params->def(‘page_heading’, JText::_(‘JGLOBAL_ARTICLES’));

2. In Joomla Forum
