I have read all the threads about hiding tags yet I was still unable to remove them. I see the_tags and tag cloud mentioned in many php files, such as index, post, template, configure, etc. But they all come in the format of if... then . Sorry about my language, I'm new to php.
It seems that I cannot get to the root of the problem. If I could only find the one place that I should remove this, it would be great. But it's nowhere to be found. Please help!!!
P.S. index.php file also contains conditional use of the_tag so nothing happens when I remove it from there.
