Changing the Category Archive title and subhead (10 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm making a website for a friend and instead of one "blog" page I created categories for her to use and from those categories, made a link to gather to "fake" different pages with different posts. Now I want to get rid/modify the "Category Archive" headline and the "Below you'll find a list of all posts that have been categorized as..." subhead if possible. Where do I look to change that? I'm using the X Theme if that helps.

    Below is a link to an example of what I see now. I created an "events" category for posts and a direct link to "events" that pull posts filed in the "events" category. The page that those posts show up had the headline/subhead that's in question.

    Thanks!

    Assuming you've already explored the Theme Options for an option to change this text and there isn't one, you have a couple of options:
    1) Hide this text from the user with CSS (easiest).

    .p-landmark-sub > span {
        display: none;
    }

    2) Have a look in the theme structure for what template is used for Category Archives (category.php or archive.php or similar), find the output in there and edit/delete accordingly.

    Oh, wow. That's awesome. That initial line of code worked to "hide" the subhead. Is there a way to hide the main "Category Archive" title as well? Thank you so much. I was actually a bit doubtful anyone would reply to this message.

    :)

    Below is the link with that first line of code that you so graciously provided.

    Btw, I'm editing the site as I write this and just in case this can't be solved easily, I've used the navigation to "cover" the Category Archive title but if you shrink the web browser enough, it'll pop back up. My "coverup" isn't ideal but if hiding the headline with code (like the subhead) isn't possible or easy to do, then this will suffice. :)

    I'm sorry but as you appear to be using a commercial theme, you need to seek support from the theme's developer/vendor. We do not support commercial products here.

    Thanks. Well, hiphopinenglish's answer proved to work to hide the subhead but not the headline which I'm also seeing if there's a simple CSS code to do that instead of going into any source files.

    The theme dev people haven't quite solved this problem for me so I thought I'd put it out there and thanks to hiphopinenglish's code, I was able to get half of it taken care of.

    Would you be able to provide the other half of the solution :D

    We do not support commercial themes as you paid for support when you bought the theme. It is not our place to keep theme vendors in business or deprive them of any income that they may derive from support services.

    Of course. Well, I thought I'd give it a shot here since I'm a little desperate at this point. Thank you for info.

    Since Esmi is completely right, I'll just add that using Firebug or a similar browser tool is a great way to solve relatively simple problems like this. However, you should head to the support area of your theme's dev site, and ask for help there.
