I need to remove "Archive:" label from the archive page title. I tried this string without results:

<?php the_archive_title('<h2>','</h2>', false);?>

The title keeps displaying the "Archive:" label before the title. How can I get rid of it?

This is the full code of my page:

<?php get_header('inner');?>

    <div class="row large-uncollapse">
        <div class="columns small-12 medium-12 large-12">
            <div class="breadcrumbs" typeof="BreadcrumbList" vocab="http://schema.org/">

              <?php if(function_exists('bcn_display'))
              {

                echo '<b>Sei in:</b>';
                bcn_display();
              }?>
            </div>

        </div>
    </div>

    <div class="row large-uncollapse">
        <div class="columns small-12 medium-12 large-12 large-centered text-center pad-vr-2">
          <?php echo get_the_archive_title();?>
        </div>
    </div>

<?php if(is_singular('rassegna-stampa')): ?>

    <div id="rassegna-stampa">
        <div class="row large-collapse">

          <?php

You need to use the filter get_the_archive_title. It works like the_title filter. More details about the function that embed the filter here

More in this question remove category tag

EDIT :

When it's a custom post type archive page, you might use another function to print the title : post_type_archive_title() Then you'll be able to hook in the title with the filter post_type_archive_title , but there is no prefix for this function.

So in your template replace the call to get_the_archive_title() function with:

post_type_archive_title();

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately it doesn't work for me. It keeps diplaying "Archives:". I'm in the archive of a custom post type, can it helps?

  • You need to look into your archive template. Update your question with its content. If you don't know which page is load, install query monitor plugin, it will provides all info.

Also, you can remove unnecessary words from any standard title:

add_filter( 'get_the_archive_title', function ($title) {
  if ( is_category() ) {
    $title = single_cat_title( '', false );
  } elseif ( is_tag() ) {
    $title = single_tag_title( '', false );
  } elseif ( is_author() ) {
    $title = '<span class="vcard">' . get_the_author() . '</span>' ;
  } elseif ( is_tax() ) { //for custom post types
    $title = sprintf( __( '%1$s' ), single_term_title( '', false ) );
  } elseif (is_post_type_archive()) {
    $title = post_type_archive_title( '', false );
  }
  return $title;
});

If you look at the get_the_archive_title() function, the prefix is now (since WP 5.5.0) wrapped in its own filter (get_the_archive_title_prefix):

$prefix = apply_filters( 'get_the_archive_title_prefix', $prefix );
if ( $prefix ) {
    $title = sprintf(
        /* translators: 1: Title prefix. 2: Title. */
        _x( '%1$s %2$s', 'archive title' ),
        $prefix,
        '<span>' . $title . '</span>'
    );
}

So you could use the filter to return an empty string (or anything you want) to overwrite the 'Archive:' text:

add_filter( 'get_the_archive_title_prefix', '__return_empty_string');

or

add_filter( 'get_the_archive_title_prefix', function($prefix) {
    /*$prefix is available for processing, too*/
    return __('your custom prefix: ', 'theme-text-domain');
});
