Important: Don't create or edit your profile because HTML has to be added to obtain this look:

Important: The title in your profile box may not show correctly on your guides. We have alerted Springshare about this issue.

Click the pencil icon in the box title and delete all of the text in the Box Name, in this example "subject guide." When the Box name is blank, click save. If you wanted to have a profile title that is different from the default title, you can put that text in the Box name instead of leaving it blank.

Profile on the guide page will reload with the correct title.
