    How can I move this line of text:

    This entry was posted in (category) on (date) by (author)

    from the bottom of the posts, to the top, just below the title?

    I need urgent help with this, anyone?



    work around on contents.php find

    <footer class="entry-meta">
    move it to after
    <header class="entry-header">

    but you have to work it again to make it better



    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

    I tried this, but didn’t quite get it to work (site got messed up, the content of the post disappeared.)

    Could you please tell me exactly what part of the code I have to move, exactly where?

    I would really appreciate it. :)))



    easy 🙂

    this is the hole code for contents.php, still mess up but I hope you can fix it

    Thank you so much! It totally worked! 🙂



    Is there any way to move just the date to the top but not the “This entry was posted in (category) by (author)”? I want to leave that below the post and move the date, but not time (I don’t want the time), to above the title.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!



    To take the date out only, try the plugin “WP Date Remover” by Omar.
    Just install and it works right away on twenty twelve.
    One thing though is that the label became “This entry was posted in (cateogory) on”
    I wish the plugin took the “on” out too because I couldn’t figure out how to take it out.
    If anyone knows how to take the “on” out please let me know.



    For some reason “author” does not show up in the “This entry was posted in (category) on (date) by (author)” line below posts.

    Here is my page:

    please start your own topic;

    your problem is too different to the current topic to continue here.



    Will do, thank you.


    Let me amend the question: How do you remove “This entry was posted (date) …” ENTIRELY from a post?

    I wonder about this, too. I’d like to be able to move around date, author name, category, tags.

    If you last two posters want help, please take the advice above and start your own thread.
