Removing timestamp from Benevolence posts

    I’m trying to remove the timestamp from my posts on It seems to me that Benevolence is one of the few templates that includes a timestamp on each post along with the date, and I’d like to be able to just have the date posted. I understand that I’d probably need to purchase the CSS upgrade for this, and that’s fine, but I checked out the CSS code and didn’t see anything about a date …

    Do I just need to deal with it, or move to a different theme?

    The blog I need help with is



    I can’t figure out a way to change it without removing the whole date, tags, and categories section.

    You’ll just have to live with it or choose a new theme.


    What would I remove to get rid of that entire section, do you know?

    @1tess, that is a brilliant work-around. Thank you!



    @1tess: that’s awesome.

    @pants: to remove the whole section you’d edit the .cite class and add display:none


    @aw1923: Thanks, for the future.

    As an aside, if you just put D in the box, it displays the day of the week. (I just found that out on accident.)

    @pantsdesign: D is part of the standard coding for date and time – see here:
