    I am using wordpress for a website and not a blog and I would like to get rid of the date and author that appears at the top of my "post" on my website's main page. I am using the theme twentyten and am very new to wordpress. Any east, step-by-step advice?

    You should create a Child theme to make your changes. If you do not, all of your changes will be lost if you update your theme.

    Try adding this to the end of your child theme's style.css:

    body.blog div.entry-meta { display: none; }

    Thanks! Do you have any easy step-by-step instructions I could use or a video I could watch. I have Notepad and Filezilla.

    I don't have anything, but a Google search on 'how to create a wordpress child theme' should turn up lots of references.
