[resolved] Two things I'd like to remove - sticky icon and "written on at" (5 posts)

    I would like to remove the phrase "written on at" that shows up on every post of fbcindy.org

    I'd also like to get rid of the yellow notepad that denotes that the post is a sticky.

    You may use custom styling to hide the post meta data. The free version of WPtouch is not easily customizable beyond what is available in the admin panel but you will, however, be able to add custom styling in the Stats & Custom Code area of your WPtouch admin panel. The tool tip there will give you additional information if you want to use a stylesheet otherwise simply include your custom CSS inside <style></style> tags.

    Try .post-author { display: none; } to hide the display of the author site-wide in your mobile theme and .post .sticky-icon { display: none; } to hide the sticky post icon. You may choose to combine these into one CSS statement: .post-author, .post .sticky-icon { display: none; }

    This fix <style>.post-author { display: none; }</style> didn't just remove "written on at" it removed categories and tags too. Is there a way to just remove "written on at"? Or what .php file is that located in the plugins editor I can just remove it there.

    On a side note, I wish WordPress designers would understand that at least half of all WordPress users are using WordPress to just build a website and we don't need all the post data like date, author, time, etc. There's never an easy way to get rid of that. WordPress started out as a blog platform but it grew because everyone just started building basic web pages with it. A lot of times posts will be used as permanent pages because that's the way the theme is set up or it's just easier that way. Even with a blog that people update on a regular basis people don't want that extra post data. Who cares if someone doesn't know the exact date and time the post was written? It's at the top of the page anyway and people know it's the latest post. It just makes the site ugly and 90% of what I do it's totally unnecessary.
