I am new to this but hopefully someone and help. I am using Blogengine and whenever I create a new blog post it puts the title of the actual blog on to the top of the posts page. So when you click in to the post from the blog home page the page starts with the main blog title as am H1 tag and then underneath that is the actual post title as an H2 tag.

I want to remove the blog title from each of the posts, how do I do this?

I am not talking about the meta page title here but the actual titles on the page. Here is a link to on of my posts and you can see it has the large title of "Florida Villas Blog - Things to do in Orlando" which I want to remove. I want the main title to be the posts title which in this case is "Windsor Hills Resort Reviews and Tips"

Hopefully someone can give me a quick fix on how to remove this.

Kind Regards

Hard to say for sure without seeing code, but looks like a theme mod and there are a couple of places to check for starters.
The themes folder in the blog root should contain your theme folder, there are two files within your theme folder where any customisations are likely to have been made.

site.master and PostView.ascx.

When you first enter the blog via browser or when browsing by category or tag you see a couple of paragraphs of preamble following the blog title that aren't there when viewing a single post - this might make your task a little easier.

Perhaps start with the PostView file and look for two containers:
<div class ="headingbar">Your Offending H1</div>
<div class ="content blog">Preamble paragraphs and standard BlogEngine markup</div>
I don't know how comfortable you are with coding, but there may well be conditional code near to these divs that needs altering. Should you find code near these divs or code referencing them, it should be a simple fix, if you are familiar with coding.

Then you would ideally change the single post title to be within an H1 tag.

You might want to think about how to replace the blog title and preamble or just leave them in for anything that's not a single post view.
