    Hi,

    Can someone please help me with a couple of wordpress issues? I've searched around and haven't seemed to figure this out.

    1) I DON'T want my blog to show tags below each post. I'm not sure if that's related to the theme or if there is an easy way to have them not appear. I still want tags for each post, I just don't want them showing up below the post.

    2) Is there a way to JUST have my sticky post show up on the main page? I have several posts but I want them to only be available for viewing on the sidebar and have the main page be nice and simple with my sticky post. I have the sticky post appearing first but all the other posts appear below it.

    THANKS!

    Cool, thanks.

    Any way to not show the tags while keeping the same theme? I really like the theme I have.

    Search the plugins there may be a plugin for that to hide tags.. or you can pay a guy on odesk to edit your php file and change that. I have a good coder that can do almost anything he is not expensive. If you cant find a solution PM me and I will link you to him.

    Home Page:
    Theres a page on the wordpress support pages that explains (very briefly and undetailed) how to remove the code.

    I would post the link to the support page but I'm not allowed to post links as a new member...
    And I can't PM either as a new member....

    so go on the wordpress org website and search for "remove tags" and it's the second result (at the time of writing, I'm not responsible if the second result changes later...)

    Just a SEO caution on this--the more words you have on the front page, the better. I flipped one of my niche sites from just 1 article + excerpts on the home page to all articles, all text, and without doing anything else (no active backlinking) it bumped from the 2nd page to the first in its niche...competitive keyword competing with old school businesses.

    Under "Appearance" click "editor", then on the right side click "Single Post" or "single.php". Now you will see a php codes, Find this line (or similar):

    Code:
    <?php the_tags('Tags: ', ', ', '<br />'); ?>
    Then edit that line by adding two slashes, like this:

    Code:
    <?php [COLOR="Red"]//[/COLOR] the_tags('Tags: ', ', ', '<br />'); ?>
    Now the tags will not appear under your all posts. Hope this helps :)
