    I’m using the Twenty Ten theme and would like to remove the date from my blog posts, but haven’t been able to figure out how to do that. I’m not a big techie and haven’t done any work with CSS. Help!

    Thanks.

    You can indeed use the Custom Design Upgrade to hide the date from your blog posts.

    To get started, go to Appearance > Custom Design in your dashboard, and add the following to your Custom stylesheet:

    .meta-prep-author, .entry-date {
    display:none;
    }

    If you’d like the date to appear on the home page, but not within the post, add the following code instead:

    .single .meta-prep-author, .single .entry-date {
    display:none;
    }

    Let me know if that helps!

    Hi,

    Thanks so much for the info, though for some reason it doesn’t seem to work. I haven’t done anything with CSS before, so what I did here was delete the “Welcome” CSS text, pasted the code (the 2nd set) into the CSS stylesheet and did preview, but there was no change – the date still appear on all the posts.

    Do you suggest I go through the CSS tutorial before I go any further?

    If you paste the 2nd code snippet, the dates will only be hidden when viewing single posts.

    If you want the dates to be hidden everywhere on the blog, I would recommend that you use the first code snippet instead.

    Let me know if it still doesn’t work for you.
