Removing Date From WordPress Posts

Discussion in 'WordPress' started by Pacific Publishing, Jan 8, 2008.

    I'd like to remove the date from the welcome post at www.obsessionfitness.com
    This is a sticky post that remains at the top of the page. I've contacted the template designer but have not heard back. Does anyone know how I can accomplish this? Thanks.

    This varies from theme to theme, but the general idea is to find snippets of code like this that mention time or date and remove them from the Theme code:

    <?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?>

    I got this one out of my Main Index Template. You may also have to check in your Single Post Template and others.

    Just open up the theme editor, and use your browser Find function to search for "time" or "date". As always, be careful. Cut and pasted the date in case you need to put it back in. (Remember where it came from.)

    It sounds like a pain doing this manually, but it gets easier.

    I guess you gotta find the date wp_template tags in your single.php file of the theme.
    If your not familiar with wordpress code and loop than you'll have to find a coder to fix that.

    I know this is an old thread, however, if I wanted to have an automated blog and remove the date from articles in wordpress, would this have an effect on search engine rankings?
