I would like to hide the author and date posted on my blog

    Currently building a site using the Chateau theme and do not wish to have author or date posted. Those do not show on the pages but do on the posts. I assume per http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/hide-date-and-hide-author-oxygen?replies=7 that I would need to buy the upgrade to change the CSS, but once I do that what is the exact snippet I need to add/remove? Where exactly would that code need to be positioned?

    Side question: If I get the CSS upgrade will I be able to add in Javascript?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is wonderlandsongs.com.

  2. You will not be able to add javascript no matter what upgrades you have. Same for iframes.

    The date will always be included in the URL of posts, even if you can hide the display.

    Please answer this question. What is the code to remove the author and date of the blog post? I need to do the same thing. I'm not concerned that it will be in the URL. Thanks!

    The annually renewable custom design upgrade for free hosted WordPress.com blogs comes with WordPress.com Staff support. None of us remaining Volunteers provide CSS editing support.

    That said, the blog linked to your username is not a free hosted WordPress.com blog and you are posting to the wrong support forum if you expect to get support for that site here. This support forum is only for those who (1) have free hosted WordPress.com blogs and (2) have paid WordPress.com for a custom design upgrade.

    Any support you need for the site linked to your username must come from http://wordpress.org/support/
    For clarity read > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    No, my blog name is tatestake.com. I have the custom upgrade which I paid $30.00 for. I got to this forum through the custom upgrade tab. My question is the same: How do I hide the date and author name from the post itself? What is the code for that and additionally, what is the code to edit the footer?

    Thanks

  7. Hooray! I found the blog here http://tatestake.com/
    You will need to start your own thread by clicking the link below as all CSS editing is theme specific and your are using The Morning After theme, not Chateau like alicearnette.

    re: footer credits
    They cannot be removed:

    May I remove credit links such as ‘Blog at WordPress.com’, theme, font, or toolbar links?
    All WordPress.com bloggers are required to maintain the credit links, even our VIP bloggers. Please do not hide the footer credits or the toolbar with CSS after purchasing a Custom Design upgrade. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/#frequently-asked-questions

  8. Currently building a site using the Chateau theme and do not wish to have author or date posted. Those do not show on the pages but do on the posts.

    To add custom CSS to a WordPress.com, you do need to purchase the Custom Design upgrade.

    Here is a CSS example to get you started. The first thing it does is hide the date in the Chateau theme. Then, it works to expand the header, content, and footer area for posts so there isn't a big gap on the left where the date used to be. You can try this out by adding it to your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS page and clicking preview:

    .post-date {
    	display: none;
    }
    
    .post-title h1,
    .post-info,
    #comments #respond {
    	padding-left: 0;
    }
    
    #nav-below {
    	padding-left: 4%;
    }
    
    .post-entry {
    	width: 92%;
    }

    Note that you may need to make some adjustments to the numbers to get the spacing just how you'd like to see it.
