If you're trying to remove the "Category: " and "Tags: " prefix that comes when trying to create dynamic achieve pages in Oxygen, you're not alone.

To get rid of this, you can install a php code snippet and then call that function to remove the prefix. Here's how:

Removing Category Archive Insert in Oxygen Builder

If you're tired of seeing the name in front of your category/tag/custom archive you can easily get rid of it.

You'll need a code snippets plugin to do this. I like the Code Snippets one since it's super easy to integrate. One you add the plugin, add a new php snippet and paste the following code:

add_filter( 'get_the_archive_title', 'my_theme_archive_title' );
 * Remove archive labels.
 * @param  string $title Current archive title to be displayed.
 * @return string        Modified archive title to be displayed.
function my_theme_archive_title( $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_post_type_archive() ) {
        $title = post_type_archive_title( '', false );
    } elseif ( is_tax() ) {
        $title = single_term_title( '', false );

    return $title;

Once you're done, instead of using the archive title dynamic data you'll just use a php function call and replace it with the name of the code snippet: get_the_archive_title:

That's it! You won't have the prefix anymore. You should see the name itself (I added the word blogs after just because I wanted to):
