Hiding Tags (7 posts)

    On my site http://www.SciFiDimensions.com I would like for the tags I assign NOT to show at the bottom of each entry, but I'll be damned if I can figure out how to do it. On my other site http://www.AmericanFreethought.com I can assign tags but they don't automatically show up. I can't tell what I've done differently.

    Anyway...how can I assign tags but not have them show up on the main page? Thanks!

    To not display tags, in the WordPress Default Theme you would delete this:
    <?php the_tags('Tags: ', ', ', '<br />'); ?>

    from the wp-content/themes/default/index.php template file.

    See:

    Thanks, but... I haven't tinkered with the code at http://www.AmericanFreethought.com and it doesn't show tags. Isn't there some setting I can select/deselect and get the same result? Thanks again!

    If a theme uses the_tag in the theme it is UNLIKELY you will be able to suppress the display unless you modify the appropriate template file in that theme.

    Hello MichaelH:

    I followed your above instructions to hide the tags from posts and it worked.

    Many thanks.

    Now, I wish to hide the tags that are displayed with each post listed in the RSS. May I ask how I do this?

    Give Customizing_Feeds a read.

    Dear MichaelH:

    Thanks for your response.

    I looked under "Customizing Your Feeds" under Customizing_Feeds. I don't see any reference to hiding tags. Would "Bloginfo_rss" be the correct area?

    The site that I am dealing with is http://www.ChristopherPavlov.com.

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Yours truly,

    chris392
