By default, every Studiopress child theme for Genesis framework display “Filed under” text next to categories and “Tageed with” text next to tags in post meta section. While this is meaningful, few users may want to modify this text. For example: show “Tags” instead of “Tagged with”.

Please Note: This code was tested on Aug 23, 2015 on Genesis Sample Themes. It works fine.

Add following code to functions.php file, this will replace “Filed Under” text with “Category: “ and “Tagged with” text with “Tags: “. Further, you can edit “Category” and “Tags” in the code for any custom text that you may want to display.

Following code will delete “Filed Under” and “Tagged With” text from display in post meta information on your Studiopress theme.

Incase above looks difficult for you to implement, then you can use Genesis Simple Edits plugin. It allows editing of three most commonly modified areas in any Genesis theme: the post-info (byline), the post-meta and the footer area.

    this does not seem to work with genesis 2.0 , do you have an idea of how to change the “file under” and “tagged with” texts ?

    thank you!

    It helped me a lot with modifying that “FILED UNDER”.
    From Genesis Simple Edits I just added [post_categories sep=”/” before=”WHAT I WANT: “]

    Hi I have tried this code to try remove text, before Categories and Tags in Metro Pro in my Site Plugin and it has no affect. Could the short codes have changed?

    Hi Davinder,

    I’ve copied the snippet to DELETE the ‘FILED UNDER’ text in my functions.php, but it didn’t make any difference. Any suggestions to make it work? Thanks a lot!

      Can you share your website url and which specific Genesis theme is being used?

    Hi Davinder, thanks for this tutorial, I have the same problem, I want to remove the File Under text and the snippet didn’t work, I’m using Genesis Sample.

    Same issue here. Not having any effect for me with Genesis 2.2.6.

    This worked perfectly for me, as I needed to change the ‘Filed With’ and ‘Tagged With’ wording to Spanish. Thank you so much!

      Oh, actually I combined two codes with the help of the code in this post. This is what worked for me:

      // Customize entry meta footer
      add_filter( ‘genesis_post_meta’, ‘themeprefix_post_meta_filter’ );
      function themeprefix_post_meta_filter( $post_meta ) {
      $post_meta = ‘Por [post_author_posts_link] | [post_categories before=”Categoría: “] | [post_tags before=”Etiqueta: “]’;
      return $post_meta;
