I hope I am posting in the correct place. If not, my apologies.

It is my understanding there is a code snippet somewhere in this site that can be added to the theme block html files that will allow for you to enter Custom Block (HTML) titles that do not show up on the web page but DO show up only in the Block Administration pages.

I use a lot of custom blocks on my site and I need to edit them often. I find it very time consuming and confusing locating the correct block to edit. It would be VERY helpful if I could have a title in the administration section only.

Thanks, Technobia

Find this expression in your theme.

<div class="blockTitle"><{$block.title}></div>

Add the if statement below.
<{if $block.title|regex_replace:"/.*none/":"none" ne "none"}>
<div class="blockTitle"><{$block.title}></div>

Insert this code in the left block loop for instance.
Simply name the block as block_name none.

Add loop to each block loop you want to have control over.

That's it.

On the admin side the block_name none shows.
On the user side no block_name is shown.

I have been using this for years on a production site. It works!
