no categories - only tags

  1. Hi everybody,

    I need some help about categories and tags. I already read a lot of posts, threads and articles but i can't find a solution for my blog. I understood what categories and tags mean in WordPress.com, but I don't need this. I don't care about visitors, indexing and so on, my blog is an autistic one. I moved from splinder platform and convert all categories to tags, after importing the xml file. I'd just like to have tags as post labels, but i can't rid out (through dashboard) of published in <name_category> under my posts. Maybe I can manually edit the style sheet, but are there any alternative ways to remove categories?

    Thanks for your attention.

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

  2. You can use a theme that has an option not to display tags and/or categories, but there are only a couple of them. You can also learn CSS editing, buy the CSS upgrade, and edit the CSS to hide them.

  3. Thanks for your (really fast :-D) reply.
    So are there no alternatives? I already know something about CSS editing and I saw the Custom Design section in the dashboard, but now I have no time for a fine tuning of my blog style. I just moved and want a quick customing. You mentioned a couple of themes with a display categories/tags option: can you show them or explain how can I find them?
    Thanks for you patience :)

  4. If you go to your Dashboard->Appearance->Themes you can scroll through and even filter the search for certain qualities like Customize Appearance etc. I'm afraid I can't remember the names of the themes that hide tags etc, but there are at least two of them. One starts with the letter A, if that helps.

    Off the top of my head the INove theme has the option to suppress display of Categories and Tags under > Appearance > Theme Options.
    Posts __Show author on posts. __Show categories on posts. __Show tags on posts.

  6. The other one is Monochrome (allows hiding tags only).

  7. I forgot again and there are only two (hanging head in shame - face red ).

  8. And I got my vowels mixed up. Thanks, guys!

  9. Thank you raincoaster, timethief and panaghlotisadam. I look at the mentioned themes, but i don't like it. I need somthing similar to twentieleven (or ten) template as a starting point because it's similar to my old one. So I decided on Altervista, where I can install WordPress and I can make my tests with css and php for free (good chance for improve my skills).
    Thank you again for your kind attention.

    Best wishes with your new site.
