Remove date from posts, using Benevolence theme

  1. I'd like to keep the dates of posts on my homepage, but remove dates from all category pages. So, the only dates you will see on the blog are on the homepage. I like to write (the reason of starting a blog), yet have NO CLUE about CSS, HTML or any other combination of capital letters. If I need to purchase a CSS upgrade- I'll do it. If I need to change my theme, I can do that too. Just please, somebody...help. I've searched everywhere for this info and can't find it. Thanks.

  2. I don't know much about CSS but I do know you certainly cannot do this without the CSS upgrade AND that you'd be ill-advised to buy the upgrade before you know some CSS. I do not know for sure if you can do this with the upgrade.

    CSS customization can be used to improve on any existing theme; you can define your own classes for use in posts; you can select the Sandbox theme and build on one of the Minimalist layouts or, opt for no stylesheet and do it all yourself. If you feel you are up to the challenge of customizing a theme then these link, link, link will be helpful. There are also css resources that you can access listed in the FAQs blog.

    The upgrade is not recommended to bloggers who do not have css customization experience. Although there is a forum and other bloggers may volunteer to help you if needs be, there is no staff support provided for learning css customization.

    The 15$ you pay to upgrade a wordpress.com blog enables you to to alter the appearance of your theme and but not the underlying php code. Purchasing the upgrade entitles you to customize css on one blog for one year.

  4. thanks for the info.

  5. You're welcome :)

  6. you can't hide the date in benevolence, it doesn't have it's own class.

    given that this is the second request for this in as many days - why do you want to do this?

    why not use pages, which don't have dates to begin with?

  7. hello sunburntkamel. do u mean use pages within wordpress, and the benevolence theme? or use an outside source with pages? again...i'm below the novice level. i'll use whatever need be to get it done- i'm not married to the template, so i'm willing to try anything to have dated info on homepage and non-dated on separate category pages. appreciate the response.

  8. okay, i think i've got it now. i need to read this and make pages... http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#What_is_a_Page.3F cool! thanks for ur help.
