  • Resolved teeli


    I need to remove “posted on” from dates on wpp when using the template tag. There’s some references to “use custom HTML”, but I have no idea how to use this.

    Alternative (much easier way) would be if I could get popular posts as array and just “foreach” through with my custom formatting.

    Is either way possible? Now I’m just using an ugly javascript hack to remove it.

    Hi teeli,

    I’m planning to improve the custom HTML feature so that people can code their own stuff and use whatever text they like. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for quite some time now, but haven’t had enough time to actually work on it.

    I also thought of the array idea you mentioned and gave it a shot not long ago however couldn’t make it work due to the way the plugin is written now so I decided to drop that idea.

    Thanks for the answer. I think I can live with it, but it would be cool if you could improve customization at some point 🙂



    Has there been a fix for the “posted on” text? Is it removable somehow?

    Actually, I’ve been working on a similar feature in the past two days or so that will allow you guys more flexibility to customize the HTML output. It seems to be working nicely now, I’m going to do some tests in the next hours and post a test version here so you can try it out.

    I am also interested in removing the “posted on” text from my posts. Got the dates removed but the “posted on” remains. How is the test version coming along? I look forward to trying it out. Thanks for your efforts!

    It’s doing pretty good! I updated the development version around 10 days ago with a couple of fixes and gotta say I believe it’s quite stable now.

    It includes a lot of changes compared to the current stable version, and I’ve updated most of the documentation in the development version to reflect the new functionalities as well. If you decide to test it, please post your questions / feedbacks here.

    Here I posted an example on customizing the HTML output, let me know what you guys think!

    Thanks for the quick response! I will give it a try. Hopefully it does not require too much tech savvy. 🙂

    Michele, it appears to be caused by Yoast’s WordPress SEO plugin. Have you tried contacting him already?

    Thanks, Hector. I will contact him. Did not know what was causing it.

    Hey guys,

    A quick heads-up: from version v2.3.3 and on, the plugin handles better the whole custom HTML part allowing even using your own HTML tags (and, of course, custom texts).

    Please, update and let me know if you need further help.
