    Dear Support,

    How do I change or remove the word ‘Category:’ from the title in my archive posts section.

    Kind regards Jen


    Hello @jenifer,

    If you wish to remove the word “Category” from your category Archive, you will need to add a block of code for the quick customization. This can be done with the help of child theme.

    To learn more about child themes, check the link here :

    You can also automate the child theme creation with the help of Child theme generator plugins.

    After Creating and activating the child theme, please paste in the following code in your child theme’s functions.php file :

    add_filter( 'get_the_archive_title', 'wen_business_pro_child_archive_titles' );
    function wen_business_pro_child_archive_titles($title) {
        if ( is_category() ) {
                $title = single_cat_title( '', false );
            } elseif ( is_tag() ) {
                $title = single_tag_title( '', false );
            } elseif ( is_author() ) {
                $title = '<span class="vcard">' . get_the_author() . '</span>' ;
        return $title;

    This will remove the title texts in the archive pages.

    Hope this Helps,

    Best Regards !!

    Thanks for the information.

    After adding in the code to the child theme functions.php file do I need to select a documentation?

    Also how does it save?

    I have no safe or update button and when I move away from the window the code is lost.

    All fixed.
