Customize the Post Meta Function

The following snippet should only be used for sites using XHTML themes and Genesis versions earlier than 3.0.0. XHTML is no longer used in Genesis 3.0.0+.

Also, unless otherwise indicated, the code snippet should be placed into your theme’s functions.php file.

The following code snippets can be used to customize the Post Meta in XHTML themes. If you are using a HTML5 (Pro) theme, please refer to the Entry Footer customization snippets.

Here is the code to customize the post meta on your website:

//* Do NOT include the opening php tag shown above. Copy the code shown below.
//* Customize the post meta function
add_filter( 'genesis_post_meta', 'sp_post_meta_filter' );
function sp_post_meta_filter($post_meta) {
if ( !is_page() ) {
	$post_meta = '[post_categories before="Filed Under: "] [post_tags before="Tagged: "]';
	return $post_meta;
