Support » Fixing WordPress » Remove Date on Posts

  • I did what this forum post said to do but it did not work for me. I have a client who wants me to remove the date off posts so readers won’t know how long it goes between posts. Any other suggestions other than the ones mentioned at the link above since it is three years old.

    Can you provide us with a link? The way I would do it is just to hide the date via CSS but editing/creating a child theme file is usually an option too.

    If we had a link we could just see what theme you are talking about.

    You know what, a team of Virtual Assistants helped me figure out that I had missed removing it from index.php in the editor section. I had just done the singlepost.php. So you can probably delete this.

    Thanks so much for your quick response!

    Removing dates from wordpress posts is very easy. All you have to do is open your themes index.php file, and some where in that file these is a piece of code which looks like

    <?php the_time(); ?>

    , you can comment or delete this. If you want the complete guide then you can visit the link that i have given above. Hope this helps

    * The default post formatting from the post.php template file will be used.
    * If you want to customize the post formatting for your homepage:
    * – Create a new file: post-homepage.php
    * – Copy/Paste the content of post.php to post-homepage.php
    * – Edit and customize the post-homepage.php file for your needs.
    * Learn more about the get_template_part() function:

    get_template_part(‘post’, ‘homepage’);


    else :
    get_template_part(‘post’, ‘noresults’);


    <?php $theme->hook(‘content_after’); ?>

    </div><!– #content –>

    <?php get_sidebars(); ?>

    <?php $theme->hook(‘main_after’); ?>

    </div><!– #main –>

    <?php get_footer(); ?>
