Support » Theme: Minnow » Replace Author with Category in the post meta block

    Hello folks

    The Minnow theme looks just about perfect for a small personal blog. However, I really don’t need the Author line on the post meta – since, you know, I’m the only author on my personal blog. πŸ™‚ I’d really like to replace this Author line with the post Category, which makes much more sense for a personal blog than listing the post author.

    I’ve found where in the template files this piece of code is. However, this block of code is too difficult for me to decipher, I don’t know PHP enough to rewrite it.

    Could you please assist?

    I’ve found a solution in another theme using similar template structure. Don’t know how fine it is code-wise, but it works. πŸ™‚

    Glad you found a theme that works. If you ever decide to return to Minnow, let me know and I’d be glad to help you with the code tweaks needed to replace author with category.

    I meant, I took a piece of code out of another theme as an example and adapted it to Minnow. πŸ™‚

    OK, cool! Just a heads-up that the best way to make changes to a theme is to use a child theme, so your tweaks won’t be overwritten every time you update the theme to the latest version. Here are some guides in case you haven’t made one before:

    If you already created a child theme, just disregard the warning. πŸ™‚
