SharePoint online - How do I remove the link in a web part title? I want the title to be text only.

  • I am using SharePoint online and a PC with Windows 10.
  • I do NOT have access to SP Designer
  • The result is the same for Chrome and IE
  • I swear I used to be able to do this easily and now I can't.

1st idea - Modify Web Part Properties, clear the Title URL field value in the Appearance section, Click OK and it does NOT work. After reloading the page, SP automatically fills the Title URL property back in with the URL of the default view of the list.

2nd idea - Replace the Title URL value with a “#”. In this case the link will not disappear yet it now links to the current page. Not what I want.

@GregSimonis could you post a screenshot of the problem you're facing?

@GregSimonis 

Here's a workaround I just came up with that is working great for me.

 

  1. Add a column:
    1. More… Calculated
    2. Name=Tool (or whatever makes sense for you)
    3. Formula = "=[Title]"
  2. Create a new view
    1. All Items drop down
    2. Create new view
    3. Give it a name like "NoLinkTitle"
    4. Be sure "make public" is checked
  3. Edit current view
    1. Uncheck Title field display option (we want to hide it because it is a hyperlink to nowhere)
    2. Make Tool = position 1
    3. Set SORT by Tool
    4. Click OK

@RobElliott  Attached below is a screenshot showing the Web Part title bar text I am trying to unlink.

The solution you show below does not remove the link to the text in the Web Part title bar.
