Learn how to hide categories and Tags in GeneratePress without having to purchase GeneratePress Premium?

GeneratePress is a terrific WordPress theme that I believe everyone should be using — it’s ridiculously fast, lightweight, and is guaranteed to help you rank better in search.

The GeneratePress premium option gives you a theme builder, several pre-made templates and blocks, a premium site library, and much more.

Typically, if you use the classic GeneratePress theme (the most common one you’ll likely end up using), you’ll see that your blog post page will show blog posts as usual — along with the title, an excerpt of your blog post, and a featured image.

By default, GeneratePress will also display categories (as links) and tags (as links) right beneath the blog post.

See how it looks:

If you don’t want to display these categories and tags in GeneratePress, your usual option is to use GeneratePress Premium.

However, you can do it without the premium option of GeneratePress — at least not for this alone.

Here’s how you can use Additional CSS code and accomplish this in minutes:

CSS to hide Tags and Categories GeneratePress

Here’s the actual additional CSS code that you can copy and paste into the Additional CSS section:

.cat-links { display:none; }
.tags-links { display:none; }

You’ll immediately see that your blog posts now will not have categories and tags showing up.

This way, you’ll keep your blog post display clean and clutter-free.

The Categories and Tags in GeneratePress will still exist (and you’ll likely see these when you see your full post as a single post).
