I have a CPT “Glossary.” The archive page is hidden link. I have tried to remove the word “Archives” from the page title several ways, including editing the custom layout and adding custom code to my theme as per ticket I haven’t been successful. Can you help?
Here is a Loom video detailing the issue. Thanks!

Jamal is on Vacation. This is Minesh here and I'll take care of this ticket. Hope this is OK.

I've added the following code to "remove-archive-title" code snippet you added to "Custom Code" section offered by Toolset:
=> hidden link

add_filter( 'get_the_archive_title','func_remove_archive_word_title',20,3); 
function func_remove_archive_word_title($title) {
    $temp = explode(':',$title);
    if(count($temp) > 1){
      return $temp[1];

I can see now "Archives:" word is removed from the archive page: hidden link


Another way to do this is;

add_filter( 'get_the_archive_title', 'paulg_5_get_the_archive_title' );

function paulg_5_get_the_archive_title( $title ) {
    $prefixes_to_remove = array(
        'Year: ',
        'Archives: ',
        'Company: ',
        'Category: '
        // Add other prefixes you want to remove...
    foreach( $prefixes_to_remove as $prefix ) {
        // If title starts with $prefix, remove it and finish
        if( $prefix == substr( $title, 0, strlen( $prefix ) ) )  {
            return substr( $title, strlen( $prefix ) );
    // No prefix was matched
    return $title;

Thank you, I tried the code you gave me but it actually removed the entire page title from all archives except Glossary. I searched again and found an Astra Pro forum post with the fix:

add_filter( 'get_the_archive_title', 'wpsite_archive_title_remove_prefix' );
function wpsite_archive_title_remove_prefix( $title ) {
if ( is_post_type_archive() ) {
$title = post_type_archive_title( '', false );
return $title;

This worked correctly. Thank you for your help and sorry for the trouble!
