Hi, I would love to get some help on this, thanks for reading me...

I have an SEO issue: duplicate H1 on our forum page https://rplusplus.com/forum/ .

The page header is H1 ("Forum R++") and in the forum itself ([wpforo]), there is also another H1 which is the forum title: "R++ Forum".

I have to remove one of the two, any suggestion please?

Thanks!

Fabienne

Hi @fabienneo,

Please navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Styles admin page, put the following CSS code in the "Custom CSS Code:" textarea:

.qodef-title-subtitle-holder-inner{
display: none !important;
}

The code hides text in the Forum header page.

Hi @alvina and thanks for your reply!

I put the css code as advised and my header disappeared, but because it is only hiden and not removed, I still have the duplicate H1 SEO issue. 

I need to replace H1 by H2 or completely remove from the code one of the two H1 headers.

Do you know how to do this  please?

Fabienne

Hi @sofy, thanks for answering me.

I had already tried to untick this box but it did work. Again, the header only hidden so the H1 duplicate warning still appears on my SEO check report.

I guess that many people use the WP forum, so I am surprised to be the only one with this SEO issue...

PLEASE if anybody has a solution for this duplicate H1 on the wp forum page, I'll try it straight away!

Thanks

Thank you @fabienneo,

The issue comes from your current active theme. You should customize the forum page of your active theme and remove the <h1> tag.

Of course, the wpForo also allows you to customize and remove the "R++ Forum" forum title but this is not recommended. All the wpForo pages are considering as one page and in this case, the primary is, of course, the forum title.

If you don't know how to customize your theme page you should contact your theme support to get some instruction on how to do it.

The following instruction may help you to do it by yourself: https://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-themes/how-to-create-a-custom-page-in-wordpress/
