[Update] – I ussually don’t update previous blog posts, but in this case it wasn’t worth writing a new one.  The following steps also work for hiding web part headers in SharePoint 2013.

A while a go a write a short post on how to hide web part headers in SharePoint 2007.  Recently I had some inquire how to do the same thing for SharePoint 2010.  So, here is what to do in order to hide a web part header in SharePoint 2010.

1.  Add a content editor web part to your page.

2. Edit the Web Part

3. Click in the content area of the web part, click HTML and select Edit HTML Source

4. Put the following code in the web part:

  1. <style>
  2.   TR.ms-viewheadertr > TH.ms-vh2 {
  3.   DISPLAY: none
  4.   }
  5. style>

5. Click OK

6. Expand Appearance (on the right side of the page)

7. Set the chrome type to None

8. Click OK and then save and check in your page.

The headers of your web part should now be hidden.  This can be extremely helpful when your page contains a web part using boxed for your style when creating a list view.  The only downside to this approach is if you have multiple web parts on a single page, it will hide the headers for all the web parts on your site.
