    Is this targeted in functions.php

    <span class="cat-title">Filed under:</span>

    I just want to change the wording from ‘Filed Under:’ to ‘In:’

    The only info I could find on the Codex was ‘single_cat_title() is located in wp-includes/general-template.php’ but nothing regards cat-title

    I didn’t want to dick about with the php this early. Or maybe I’m completely wrong in my thinking

    It’s definitely PHP but you probably have never played with WordPress filters before and didn’t know where to look. That’s normal!

    Here’s what you need.

    That falls under the “byline text” filter… very easy to change and I provide example code. Also linked on that page is a description of what filters are and how they work. So that’s worth a read too because that’s how you change EVERY filtered element on WordPress themes.

    But for the quick solution, this is how you change it (paste into functions.php file):

    // Change byline static text
    function static_byline_text( $cat_text ) {
        $cat_text = str_replace( 'Filed under:', 'Topics:', $cat_text );
        return $cat_text;
    add_filter( 'byline_text', 'static_byline_text' );

    Be sure to read up on the filters. You can change every little detail about Volatyl. 🙂

    And just to be clear, every single code example I give in that filters page is ready for use and the values can be adjusted. So it takes no thinking, really. I’ve already done the work.

    Your code posted here didn’t do it for me but I think it could’ve been related to Super Cache.

    The filter ‘ByLine’ docs sorted it anyway.

    off topic –

    I just got notified of the reply now via email. 2 days later….?

    I’m sorry… there was one variable name incorrect in the code I gave you. I edited the code so it made more sense when I pasted it here and forgot to edit one part.

    So if you went to the filter docs, it most definitely should have been good to go. Sorry about that!
