How to remove TAGs and Category

HI all,

Sorry for all those questions the last days :) .. I am a new elgg user, with limited prgramming skills and frying to find my way around Elgg.

I would like to remove the TAGS and Categories from the list view of blogs on the main page. I tried playing with the file blog.php on location : mod/blog/views/default/object/blog.php ..

But when i add an empty string to $tags, it still shows the original tags.. perhaps someone can be as kind to assist me here? There is a full view and brief view, i tried changing both.

thanks in advance :)
