    hi, i am trying to customize the text prior to the category, instead of the default “filed under”. i inserted this into my functions file:

    /** Customize the post meta function */
    add_filter( ‘genesis_post_meta’, ‘post_meta_filter’ );
    function post_meta_filter($post_meta) {
    if ( !is_page() ) {
    $post_meta = ‘[post_categories before="Blog Category: "] [post_tags before="Tagged: "]‘;
    return $post_meta;
    }}

    which i got from the snippets page and it is not changing anything.

    I then tried this:

    /** Customize the post meta function */
    add_filter(‘genesis_post_meta’, ‘post_meta_filter’);
    function post_meta_filter($post_meta) {
    if (!is_page()) {

    $post_meta = ‘Blog Category: [post_categories], Tagged: [post_tags]‘;
    return $post_meta;
    }}

    no change.

    i am using MomPrenuer Child Theme.  Am i missing something? thanks

    I can help you with this code, but it might be easier if you use the Genesis Simple Edits plugin – it makes this all a bit simpler.

    thanks, i did install simple edits but it just makes me curious as to why these aren’t working,  the first snippet is from StudioPress…

    i thought for anyone else who may have this issue, I read on the old forum that simple edits can conflict with snippets, such as the above, added to the functions file when trying to customize post meta.
