Hide Tags from WordPress Blog Posts

So you want to hide tags from your WordPress posts? Easy…

To remove the tags line, you need to find out how to reference it and change its style using CSS. This might sound alien and weird but trust me, you can do it. Or just post a comment if you’re having difficulty 🙂

  1. Open your website, open a post and open the dev tools in your browser. This is usually done by pressing F12
  2. Look at the screenshot below and follow the step:
    1. Press where arrow #1 hints to
    2. Hover over the “Tagged” section as arrow #2 shows
    3. Finally, see the name or ID that is given to that object (Mine is tags-links)

 

3. Now that we have that, we can add some CSS to our site to make this not appear.

4. Go into Appearance -> Customize -> Additional CSS

5. Here we will add the following lines (Note that you should replace this with whatever you found in section 2.3 above):

.tags-links{
    display:none;
}

6. You can see this below:

7. Now when we refresh the page, you should see that your tags have gone completely from all your posts!

Enjoy!
