Genesis: Remove everything Except Post Title - On Category View WordPress

  • SOLVED

I am using a genesis child theme on a site and cannot figure out how to remove all the extra data that is displayed on the category view. When I currently look at a category this is what it looks like:

<blockquote>Post Title
July 26, 2012 By Admin
Lorem lupsum… [Read more...]
Filed Under: Category</blockquote>

I want to get rid of everything else except the post title.

Dbranes answers:

have you tried the genesis filters (http://www.studiopress.com/tutorials) ?

you could try these filters in your child theme's functions.php :


/** Customize the post info function */
add_filter( 'genesis_post_info', 'post_info_filter' );
function post_info_filter($post_info) {
if (is_category()) {
$post_info = '';
return $post_info;
}}

/** Customize the post meta function */
add_filter( 'genesis_post_meta', 'post_meta_filter' );
function post_meta_filter($post_meta) {
if (is_category()) {
$post_meta = '';
return $post_meta;
}}

/** Customize the post meta function */
add_filter( 'the_excerpt', 'post_excerpt_filter' );
function post_excerpt_filter($post_excerpt) {
if (is_category()) {
$post_excerpt = '';
return $post_excerpt;
}}


or try removing the hooks:

remove_action( 'genesis_before_post_content', 'genesis_post_info' );
remove_action( 'genesis_after_post_content', 'genesis_post_meta' );


with a category check?


badnews comments:

I already use the "remove action" bits to get rid of the post meta and info - however this gets rid of that info on the posts as well.

Getting rid of the post excerpt & read more link doesn't work with the code you provided.

Thanks


Dbranes comments:

you could try this to remove the excerpt/content :


remove_action( 'genesis_post_content', 'genesis_do_post_content' );



ps: you can always use CSS to hide it with "display:none;" ;-)


badnews comments:

remove_action( 'genesis_post_content', 'genesis_do_post_content' );

Already tried that last night. This hides the content on the post as well.


Dbranes comments:

so this combined is doing the job

remove_action( 'genesis_before_post_content', 'genesis_post_info' );
remove_action( 'genesis_after_post_content', 'genesis_post_meta' );
remove_action( 'genesis_post_content', 'genesis_do_post_content' );


but you only want it to be removed on category pages and !is_single() ?


Dbranes comments:

ps: here is one idea of a conditional remove_action:

add_action('genesis_before','remove_some_actitons');
function remove_some_actitons() {
if ( is_category()) { // <--- you could change this to your needs
remove_action( 'genesis_before_post_content', 'genesis_post_info' );
remove_action( 'genesis_after_post_content', 'genesis_post_meta' );
remove_action( 'genesis_post_content', 'genesis_do_post_content' );
}
}



badnews comments:

Thanks that works perfectly.

Can you post your single.php code?

<?php

genesis();


Doesn't look like there is much in here :|.


Michael Caputo comments:

How about of your child theme... Sorry, should have been more specific.


badnews comments:

There is only 3 php files in the child theme.

home.php
functions.php
page_landing.php

Sorry.


Michael Caputo comments:

What version of the framework do you have


badnews comments:

Version: 1.8.2


Michael Caputo comments:

So exactly what 'extra data' do you want to remove?


badnews comments:

Post Title

Filed Under: Category

Out of everything that is there, I just want to keep the Post Titles.

// remove post data on category page except post title

remove_action('genesis_after_post_content', 'genesis_post_meta');
remove_action('genesis_before_post_content', 'genesis_post_info');
remove_action('genesis_post_content', 'genesis_do_post_content');

add_action('template_redirect', 'child_conditional_actions');
function child_conditional_actions() {
if( is_single() ) {
add_action('genesis_after_post_content', 'genesis_post_info');
add_action('genesis_after_post_content', 'genesis_post_meta');
add_action('genesis_post_content', 'genesis_do_post_content');
}}




Above should solve the issue at hand :)
