    How do I remove “Modify: Edit This” from the top of every post?

    Also how do I move the Dates, Tags, etc to the very bottom of a post rather than the top?

    The blog I need help with is chiclittlepoorgirl.com.

    I don’t help with CSS. I will answer your first question though. Those are Admin [edit] links that only you as a logged-in Admin can see. Your visitors cannot see the Admin [edit] links. They are provided for your convenience so you can edit from the front of a post or page with one click, rather than having to click o to your Admin page, then locate the post or page click the title, and then click again to edit. Also note that we cannot edit templates or themes so you may not be able to remove them. http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/editing-themes/

    Please be patient while waiting for CSS editing help.

    P.S. The blog linked to your username is not using the Clean Home theme. It’s wearing Bold Life. Please post an active link starting with http:// to the blog wearing Clean Home that you purchased the custom design ugrade for.

    You can hide those with CSS, but it really shouldn’t be necessary since Edit links are only shown to logged in users with rights to edit. Let me know if you’re still interested in removing them anyway, but I don’t think it’s necessary. Try logging out and viewing your blog to see the difference.

    How do I move the Dates, Tags, etc to the very bottom of a post rather than the top?

    That stuff is called the post meta. To move the post meta to the bottom of posts in the Clean Home theme, try this:

    .post {
    position: relative;
    padding-bottom: 50px;
    margin-bottom: 12px;
    }
    
    .post-meta {
    display: block;
    position: absolute;
    bottom: 0;
    }

    Note that the trouble with moving the post meta in context here is that it has a variable width, and when you position something absolutely, you need to know how much space to give it and set that accordingly (that’s why I added a 50px padding-bottom to .post). Since the height is variable, it’s possible the spacing may look off if you add too many categories and tags. I picked a padding that I think looks good with two lines and still works for three. Try it out and check the posts your home page to see what I mean. You can adjust the numbers in the example if you want to change them.
