Removing Timestamps (does this just hide them?) (5 posts)

    If I remove timestamps by removing:
    from index, page template and archives:
    <?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?>

    Will my posts still be controlled by and ordered by the post date?

    Does removing <?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?> just HIDE the timestamps?

    I just want to hide all timestamps everywhere.

    Thanks,
    Jimmy

  2. Time data is still stored in the database for each post and posts are still sorted by that data; all <?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?> does is display the time on the page when it's rendered.

    Thanks songdogtech!

    Just to clarify- I can still re-order my posts changing the post date in the admin area right?

  4. Yes; and you can also edit the permalink to reflect the new date, but that will break any links back to that post form other sites.
