  • Resolved corona79


    I don’t want the time to display on posts and was able to “blank it out” in Settings – General – Time Format. Now the date displays with a trailing comma, e.g., “October 5, 2009,“. Is there a way to get rid of that extraneous comman?

  • What does your custom setting say on that Settings > General > Time Format page? Is there an extra comma there to just remove, ie: “F j, Y,”?

    The date format is October 5, 2009
    The time format is Custom: <blank> – which I why I don’t understand where the comma comes from.

    Sorry, I meant Date Format. Is there anything in the custom box for that?

    It shouldn’t matter, because the Custom option is not selected for Date Format, but it’s basically what produces October 5, 2009, that is, F j, Y

    Ahh, ok. Just checking.

    You’ll need to have a look through your theme files then. Try your index.php, page.php and single.php files. Sounds like it’s been coded in to that.

    Have a look for something along the lines of:

    <?php the_time('F j, Y'); ?>, <?php the_time('g:i a'); ?>

    …and remove the unwanted comma.
