The Erudite
How do I remove Categories from Posts? (3 posts)

    Now that we have tags in WordPress, I see no reason to use Categories for my posts as well. It seems like an inelegant duplication of the same thing.

    I have a child theme of The Erudite, and I have spent weeks trying to work out this problem on my own through various other forums, but none of them seem to work with The Erudite.

    I hope someone can help me with this simple problem of removing the lines "Posted in category". For example, I want to remove the line "Posted in People" in this blog post of mine for both the post and for the front page.

    Open single.php

    Find

    <span class="cat-links"><?php printf( __( 'Posted in %s', 'erudite' ), get_the_category_list(', ') ) ?></span>

    either delete it or just comment it out by pasting in

    <!--<span class="cat-links"><?php printf( __( 'Posted in %s', 'erudite' ), get_the_category_list(', ') ) ?></span>-->

    Thanks. Worked like a charm when I edited the files in the Erudite folder. But not when I pasted the edited files to the child folder.

    Isn't editing child themes as simple as copying the relevant php files to the child folder? In this instance, single.php and home.php?
