Clicking "Posted in" Category in navigates away from site. Does it have to?

  1. Under each post, there is a link titled "Posted in" category. When you click on the category it navigates to an area showing other "featured" blogs that use this same category.

    Is there a way to either:
    1) modify the link such that it doesn't navigate away from my site?
    or 2) remove the link entirely?

    I'm using the Rusty Grunge theme.

    Thanks for any tips! I am just getting started with wordpress.com and I am very impressed with what I have seen so far.

    The blog I need help with is bsatroop107.wordpress.com.

  2. Please start here :

    The Global Tag Listings at WordPress.com aggregate all published posts attached to any particular tag or category, and display our most popular topics. http://en.support.wordpress.com/global-tags/

    You can:
    (1) Set blog visibility to private. http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/

    (2) Use the iNove theme which is the only one that has options you can use to prevent display of categories and tags. http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/inove/

    Vote that the links to your posted displayed in Categories and Tags widgets direct to the content in your own blog rather than for the global tag pages.

    Edit: Note that the links to your posted displayed in Categories and Tags widgets direct to the content in your own blog rather than to the global tag pages.

  4. Thank you for your quick response.

    In my case, #1 is not an option. #2 is not ideal, but something I will consider.

    I was able to hide the links using the CSS editor so that is something else I may consider (whether it is worth the CSS Upgrade).

    span.cat-links { display:none; }

    Thanks again for giving me some things to consider.

  5. I did not realize you had the CSS upgrade as this thread is not in the CSS forum. It's in the support Forum. You're welcome.

  6. I do not have the CSS upgrade, but it does allow me to preview it so it's just something else I am considering.

  7. Ahh ... I see now. What you are doing is exploring all options. Best wishes with your decision making. :)
