I followed the instructions and no tags showed in my posts. But then coding always works like a charm for other people, but not for me. LOL! Any advice?

Awesome, this works great, thank you! It works on Single Post screens, which is what I need.

Thank you, lotsOlogs. Elegant Themes Divi tech support referred me to this page in response to my question about how to display Date | Category | Tag as a single line of text. Your code works beautifully, and I can't understand why Elegant Themes hasn't implemented something similar...

Two comments, neither of which is meant as criticism:

  1. The tags don't show up on the blog page list, as mentioned by at least one other user. That's not very important, though. More important for visitors to see and search Category and Tag from the individual post.

  2. I may be mistaken, but I think post meta information typically displays Category first, followed by Tag. I simply switched the two instructions in your (extremely easy-to-follow) code and it's PERFECT.

Again, thanks a LOT.

For those who say this code does not work for them, I note that the change does NOT appear in Divi's Visual Builder, nor does it appear in the 'New' Divi Builder previews. It DOES, however, appear when you select View Page, which takes you to the actual page displayed on the Internet.

So don't be fooled. The code works very well. Category and Tag names are searchable (too good) and they adhere to whatever visual formatting you chose in the Blog Title module's Elements section. A real problem solver.

Hi, does the above code works after the last DIVI updates? I have the version "3.27.4" and I can not see the code in Blog.php that Blog-1 and Blog-2 dictates to replace it with the tags code.
I made an override in divi-child/module/Blog.php that works but as said I can not find the code that need to be replaced.
