Theming: How to change or remove site title from body public?

Dear Community,

how can I change the header that shows when accessing the site by a public link? Removing (make it empty) the getName value in defaults.php leads to other issues. The file layout.base.php has the following code:

	<body id="body-public">
		<?php include('layout.noscript.warning.php'); ?>
		<?php print_unescaped($_['content']); ?>

But where do I change the result that looks like

<a href="/index.php" title="" id="owncloud">
  <h1 class="logo-icon">my ownCloud Title</h1>

Where do I remove the my ownCloud Title from this part?

Steps to reproduce

  1. Checked all template files for body-public
  2. only found the layout.base.php
  3. not able to change the header part to only show logo (remove the getName value part)

Expected behaviour

As the core files contain layout.guest.php and layout.user.php to change the basic design I was really suprised that the site access by a public link is based on layout.base.php.

Actual behaviour
