Support » Theme: Twenty Thirteen » Removing post date from Google search

  • Trying to figure out how to remove the date from Google search results etc. I did it previously on earlier WordPress versions, but don’t recall how or if the same will work on Twenty Thirteen. Thanks

  • Found the following code in CSS 5.2 Entry Meta, I changed the “before” to “none” and placed in my child theme. Not sure if that will work but I’ll see.

    .entry-meta .date a:before {
    content: “\f303”;

    I have found many different ways to get rid of the dates, but none seem to work anymore according to people that have tried. Also most pertain to older themes. Haven’t found one yet for Twenty Thirteen.

    Still looking for a solution for this.

    Btw I don’t think Google will stop indexing your post date if you hide it with CSS.

    I previously was able to hide it in the twenty eleven theme on a different site. I don’t remember the exact code and several I have tried in twenty thirteen are not working.

    Is this just a twenty thirteen issue of not being able to remove the date snippet in a google search? I have found nothing. I need the date removed. My homepage is static and I do not want the date.

    So Im guessing its just this theme that no one knows how to remove the date snippet in a google search. Pretty sad for a “support forum” on this theme. Looks like Ill have to change back to an older version.
