Support » Fixing WordPress » Removing the date/time stamp and tags from posts

  • Resolved eastbayjosh


    Hi, I have built the site using the BlueBlack theme, and have two things I am struggling with.
    Both apply to post pages like this one.

    1. How do I remove the box at the top left of each post that contains the date, time, etc…?
    2. How do I make it so that the tags (at the bottom), do not show?

    Any help is hugely appreciated!

    Two methods:

    The Right Way: Edit your theme’s single.php file and remove:

    <div class="side-box-holder">
    <div class="dateholder">
    <div class="date"><?php the_date('j');?></div>
    <div class="monthyear">
    <div><?php the_date('F');?></div>
    <div><?php the_date('Y');?></div>

    The Quick Way:
    Edit style.css and add display:none; to:

    side-box-holder  {
    padding:5px 25px 5px 10px;


    I tried doing it the “right way”, but the formatting got all messed up so I just plugged the code right back in, but now the post pages are messed up. The sidebar is coming over the left.

    I didn’t change anything else. I even tried putting the original single.php code back in, but it still didn’t come out right.

    I don’t know how to fix this page now. Please help!
