    New to WordPress but it has been amazing, absolutely love it!

    I would like to remove the "Posted on 12/11//2012 by admin" and "Posted In" from my Home Page.

    I am using the Shell Lite theme, which I have done some mods to but I cannot figure out how to remove this info...
    Other themes seem to have a <php author> code by I only see "get_author" in this theme.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    You may be able to hide that info using CSS, but you need to post a link to your site where the problem can be viewed.

    Thanks for your response my site is http://www.nebronx.com
    I designated a static page as my home page, but it automatically puts
    Posted on December 11, 2012 by admin on the home page.

    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:

    .home .post-meta { display: none; }

    Thank you, I will try that code and I will research how to make child themes, but does my theme update automatically? (figured I would just not update)

    It won't update automatically, but a future WP update might break the theme. In that case, you would be forced to update to continue using the theme, or else find a different theme.

    .home .post-meta { display: none; }

    THANKS ALOT! It worked great to remove the top, but I still have a small thing at the bottom "Posted in" any suggestions on that?

    PERFECT THANKS ALOT!!!! Cant tell you how many things I tried editing and just couldnt figure it out.

    The easiest way is to create a zip file for the child theme on your local PC and install it.

    • Create a folder for your child theme, named something like 'twentyten-child'. Do not use spaces in the name.
    • Create a style.css file in the folder. Follow the instructions under 'Example of a basic Child Theme' here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes#The_required_style.css_file
    • Optionally create an empty functions.php file for later use.
    • Optionally copy the screenshot.png file from your parent theme into the folder.
    • Zip the entire folder into a .zip file. Do not zip the individual files, only the folder containing the files.
    • Install the theme using Admin->Appearance->Themes->Install Themes->Upload

    Once the theme installs properly, activate it.
