The NoTitle extension adds a magic word, __NOTITLE__, that lets you hide the main title heading on any page.


Add __NOTITLE__ behaviour switch on any pages where you want to hide the title. [1]

{{DISPLAYTITLE:newtitle}} works for any page.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called NoTitle in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'NoTitle' );
    $wgRestrictDisplayTitle = false;
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

To users running MediaWiki 1.30 or earlier:

The instructions above describe the new way of installing this extension using wfLoadExtension(). If you need to install this extension on these earlier versions (MediaWiki 1.30 and earlier), instead of wfLoadExtension( 'NoTitle' );, you need to use:

require_once "$IP/extensions/NoTitle/NoTitle.php";


  1. This extension will work for any skin that puts the title heading in an ‎<h1> with class="firstHeading", including the default Vector skin.
