View Full Version : What do we need to edit please to remove the date from top of Wordpress blog posts?

In our blog the date of the blog posts appears at the top of each blog post, next to the title (see here (http://www.azam.info/)). This puts pressure on us to continually keep the blog updated and people think that blog posts are 'old' even though the ones from a year ago are usually as relevant today as they were in 2011.

Just wish to call upon the Wordpress gurus out there: what do we need to edit to remove the date from the top and put it at the end of each blog post? Would be ideal if, even it was at the end, it wasn't so prominent.

Thanks very much.

You should be able to take it out by modifying the template styles.

Quick CSS fix:

add these two bits of code to your CSS file:

.PostHead {
padding-left: 0px !important;

.PostDate {
display: none !important;
visibility: hidden !important;

Or, edit some of the template files in your theme directory ...
Such files as (and the names differ depending on theme author) ...

You can remove the date as well as the "posted by" name.

Only edit files in your theme directory, not any of the WP files outside of that.
If your theme author has an update for your theme, you'll need to remember
where changes were made, or you'll overwrite them if you update your theme files.
