Hide categories/tags in Squarespace 7.1


Cattty

Question

Hey, does anyone know how to hide categories and tags from Squarespace 7.1?

I'd like to optimise my internal search by using them on blog posts.

Until a solution is found, I've removed all categories and tags from my site.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Hey @Andrius! What if I wanted to move the tags rather than hide them? Is it possible to code .blog-meta-item--tags into a code block so I can insert them anywhere on the page I'd like?

Hey, similar but reverse to this. In 7.1, I want the tags and categories in the main events page to show up, instead of only at he bottom of the event's listing page. Any tips there? See screenshots attached.

Ideally tags (or categories) would show up as an element to let users sort events by category. I've marked them in the red boxes. It would be double amazing if one could sort by tag (or categories) at the top of the page too.

The tags DO show up but only when you click the listing, and only at the bottom, it's just not a very useful way to sort the events. Am I missing a setting somewhere for this?

And there is a built-in option to hide categories in the section settings

Hi Andrius,

Where do I enter this code in version 7.1? Am not a coding person and so I can see that there are a few places in the website where I could potentially add code to Custom CSS.

 

Would I add the above code to hide the tags in my blog posts, here?

  • Blog Settings>Advanced>Post Blog Item Code Injection>Blog Post Item Code Injection>
 

Have attached screenshot of that location, too.

 

Thank you in advance!

Best

Angie

@Angie123

Add to Home > Design > Custom CSS. This would be a site-wide effect.

If you want to only change the one blog page then wrap the code in a style tag. Enter it were you show in your post.

<style>
  
  [enter you code here]
  
  </style>

Let us know how it goes.

Hi Creedon,

Thank you.

1. So to enter the code like this?

<style>

.blog-meta-item--tags {
  display: none;
}

  </style>

 

2. Is this the place you mean (see attached screenshot) - is there a reason why it;s best to enter it site wide rather then here: Blog Settings>Advanced>Post Blog Item Code Injection>Blog Post Item Code Injection ? Perhaps the latter does not work for the blog page?

 

Thank you in advance

Angie

Yes if you want to change only the one blog page.

It's not a matter of best but what effect you want to achieve and where. CSS entered in Design > Custom CSS can effect all pages site-wide. Code added in Page Settings > Advanced > Page Header Code Injection effects only that single page.

Thank you Creedon. Sorry for being so dense, am so not a coder 🙂 so have one more clarification question, because you mentioned page header. Now, can't I add that code right here in what looks to me the blog page itself? Below is the location and attached is the screenshot of that location.

  • Blog Settings>Advanced>Post Blog Item Code Injection>Blog Post Item Code Injection>

 

Many thanks

Angie
