Removing Post Tags
Is it possible...for me to enter in my Post Tags, but I don't want them to show at the bottom of each post. How can I remove the tags so they don't show?
The only way that I am aware of is to edit the theme file/s to remove the reference to the tags.
In Socrates I think the only reference is in single.php which is what is used when an individual post is viewed.
Find and remove the lines that read:
<div class="postmetadata"><?php the_tags('Tags: ', ', ', '<br />'); ?> Posted in <?php the_category(', ') ?> <?php edit_post_link('| Edit', '', ' '); ?></div>
This should stop the tags from appearing on the post.
If you also install the 'Simple Tags' plugin then you have a little more control over your tags so can choose to show or hide them as you wish.
Tried putting tags in All in One SEO too
Thanks for the tip, However, I did find, what I think may be an easier way after creating this thread.
I put my post tags in my in my Keywords section of my
All in One SEO plugin, then deleted them out of the post tags in Word Press.
Now the keywords don't show on my website but I think I still get the benefits of having the keywords because they are in my source code, when I view page source.
Let me know if you agree with this and if I am on track with my thinking.
