Support » Fixing WordPress » Removing Timestamps (does this just hide them?)
7 years, 5 months ago
If I remove timestamps by removing:
from index, page template and archives:
<?php the_time(‘F jS, Y’) ?>
Will my posts still be controlled by and ordered by the post date?
Does removing <?php the_time(‘F jS, Y’) ?> just HIDE the timestamps?
I just want to hide all timestamps everywhere.
Time data is still stored in the database for each post and posts are still sorted by that data; all <?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?> does is display the time on the page when it’s rendered.
<?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?>
Just to clarify- I can still re-order my posts changing the post date in the admin area right?
Yes; and you can also edit the permalink to reflect the new date, but that will break any links back to that post form other sites.
Thanks for the help songdogtech!
