Support » Fixing WordPress » Archives – where change description?

  • Resolved kenwinstoncaine


    When I click on an archive and it is called up, my archive page says, ‘Archive for the ‘”Whatever archive name is”‘ Category.”

    I would like to change that language but have been unable to locate what file it is in. What file would I go to to alter the wording on “Archive for the….Category?”

  • Link? What theme in use?
    When you have such a theme-dependent question, either give us a link to your blog, or tell the name of the theme (with a link to its source) etc.

    Sorry, Moshu. Didn’t realize this was a theme-dependent issue. Was just this moment thinking it might be in “functions” and was heading there when I decided to look back in here.

    Link to blog?


    Most likely that text is half hardcoded, half dinamically generated at the top of a file called archive.php in your theme folder. Look for something like:
    <?php /* If this is a category archive */ if (is_category()) { ?>
    <h2 class="pagetitle">Archive for the '<?php echo single_cat_title(); ?>' Category</h2>

    Some details my be different (this is an example from the Default theme) but you got the idea 🙂
