It takes a bit of effort, of not settling for the defaults, but it's perfectly possible to break free from that tyranny. Most feed re... colinwalker.blog

Agreed.

@colinwalker FWIW, Rhoneisms is Wordpress based and the vast majority of posts don’t have Headlines. One can eliminate them with a bit of CSS editing of post types or there’s a few plug-ins that will do it too. Not that hard.

Exactly – not settling for the defaults and looking for solutions rather than complaining about it.

@colinwalker it's a really curious post. People have been blogging without a title for quite some time now. And I am sure these are people even Om would be aware of. I guess he is looking mainly looking from WordPress editor perspective?

Dave Winer was blogging without titles right back at the beginning. Admittedly he wrote his own software but it’s not exactly new.

@bix I managed to do it using Wordpress’ own Twenty Sixteen theme.

@colinwalker Yeah, same here. A very strange post. I had no trouble writing without titles when I was on WordPress. Those posts caused some minor problems when I moved over to building a static site and imported them into Nikola, but they were easily fixed.
