Removing "Caterogy:" label from post title

We want to remove the label "Category: " from our archive listings on

The only place i’ve found it in code is inc/template-tags.php, line 138:

		$title = sprintf( __( 'Category: %s', 'sydney' ), single_cat_title( '', false ) );

I deleted those characters from the sprintf function, but they remain on the archive listing.

What am I missing?


Hello there,

Title is now controlled by WP, that function is only for previous WP versions. Try solution from this post

All the Best!

That works perfectly for our needs. We do have a child theme (the ONLY way to customize).

Thanks for the great support.

You’re welcome,

And thank you for using our theme.

All the Best!
