    Hello neu01,

    In your Dashboard:

    • Navigate to the Appearance > Editor menu
    • Locate and click on single.php

    Locate and delete this block of code:

    <div class="meta">
    				<p>This entry was posted on <?php the_time('l, F jS, Y') ?> at <?php the_time() ?> and is filed under <?php the_category(', ') ?>.</p>
                    <p>You can follow any responses to this entry through the <?php post_comments_feed_link('RSS 2.0'); ?> feed. <?php if (('open' == $post-> comment_status) && ('open' == $post->ping_status)) { ?></p>
                    <p>You can <a href="#respond">leave a response</a>, or <a href="<?php trackback_url(); ?>" rel="trackback">trackback</a> from your own site. <?php } elseif (!('open' == $post-> comment_status) && ('open' == $post->ping_status)) { ?>Responses are currently closed, but you can <a href="<?php trackback_url(); ?> " rel="trackback">trackback</a> from your own site. <?php } elseif (('open' == $post-> comment_status) && !('open' == $post->ping_status)) { ?> You can skip to the end and leave a response. Pinging is currently not allowed. <?php } elseif (!('open' == $post-> comment_status) && !('open' == $post->ping_status)) { ?> Both comments and pings are currently closed.<?php } ?></p>
    				<p><?php edit_post_link('Edit this entry','','.'); ?></p>
    				</div>
    				<?php comments_template(); ?>

    Hope that helps.

    Hi,
    Thank you for your reply. I followed the instructions,but going code for code,I was unable to tracke the exact content that you mentioned in your reply.Enclosed within is the code given which i see:
    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <div id=”single”>
    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <div class=”post” id=”post-<?php the_ID(); ?>”>
    <h2 class=”title”><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
    <div class=”entry”>
    <?php the_content(‘<p class=”serif”>Read the rest of this entry »</p>’); ?>
    <?php wp_link_pages(array(‘before’ => ‘<p>Pages: ‘, ‘after’ => ‘</p>’, ‘next_or_number’ => ‘number’)); ?>
    <p class=”taginfo”><?php echo get_the_tag_list(‘Tags:’,’, ‘,”); ?></p>
    <div class=”meta”>
    <p>This entry was posted on <?php the_time(‘l, F jS, Y’) ?> at <?php the_time() ?> and is filed under <?php the_category(‘, ‘) ?>.</p>
    <p>You can follow any responses to this entry through the <?php post_comments_feed_link(‘RSS 2.0’); ?> feed. <?php if ((‘open’ == $post-> comment_status) && (‘open’ == $post->ping_status)) { ?></p>
    <p>You can leave a response, or ” rel=”trackback”>trackback from your own site. <?php } elseif (!(‘open’ == $post-> comment_status) && (‘open’ == $post->ping_status)) { ?>Responses are currently closed, but you can ” rel=”trackback”>trackback from your own site. <?php } elseif ((‘open’ == $post-> comment_status) && !(‘open’ == $post->ping_status)) { ?> You can skip to the end and leave a response. Pinging is currently not allowed. <?php } elseif (!(‘open’ == $post-> comment_status) && !(‘open’ == $post->ping_status)) { ?> Both comments and pings are currently closed.<?php } ?></p>
    <p><?php edit_post_link(‘Edit this entry’,”,’.’); ?></p>
    </div>
    <?php comments_template(); ?>
    </div>
    </div>
    <?php endwhile; else: ?>
    <p>Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.</p>
    <?php endif; ?>
    </div>
    <!– end #content –>
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    </div>
    <div class=”clear”></div>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Apologies..I was able to locate the code & delete it..I clicked on update & when I went back to my site,in admin mode,the same content is still showing 🙁

    The code I see now is <?php get_header(); ?>
    <div id=”single”>
    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <div class=”post” id=”post-<?php the_ID(); ?>”>
    <h2 class=”title”><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
    <div class=”entry”>
    <?php the_content(‘<p class=”serif”>Read the rest of this entry »</p>’); ?>
    <?php wp_link_pages(array(‘before’ => ‘<p>Pages: ‘, ‘after’ => ‘</p>’, ‘next_or_number’ => ‘number’)); ?>
    <p class=”taginfo”><?php echo get_the_tag_list(‘Tags:’,’, ‘,”); ?></p>
    </div>
    </div>
    <?php endwhile; else: ?>
    <p>Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.</p>
    <?php endif; ?>
    </div>
    <!– end #content –>
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    </div>
    <div class=”clear”></div>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>
