Taking Date off Posts

  1. Hi - I am trying to take the date off of all of my posts for my blog done in the wo wei theme. I only have the free version. Can you tell me if this is possible in the free version?

  2. If it can be done at all, and in this case, it can be done, removing or suppressing display of theme elements is done via CSS editing.

    See here for details on purchasing the annually renewable Premium bundle http://store.wordpress.com/plans/premium/ that contains a custom design upgrade required for CSS editing: Custom design - Frequently Asked Questions
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/#frequently-asked-questions
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/editing-css/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/custom-fonts/

    Note that once you have the required upgrade you can use this link http://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/css-customization#postform so you can create a thread that will appear in the CSS Forum where you will get the help you need with CSS editing.

    You can also post there prior to purchasing an upgrade to get an answer to whether or not what you want to do can be accomplished via CSS editing.

  3. Wu Wei and it is an older retired theme. Retired themes do not support all wordpress.COM features, therefore, the recommendation is to switch themes and that's easy to do.

    The only themes we can use on WordPress.com hosted blogs are licensed and adapted to run on our multiuser software the themes are found here http://wordpress.com/themes/ and in your dashboard at > Appearance > Themes
    See: http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/adding-new-themes/

    Themes are just "skins" on WordPress.COM hosted blogs. You can quickly and easily change themes on any WordPress.COM hosted blog to another one found here http://wordpress.com/themes/ and no data will be lost or negatively affected by the change. The only time you may have to do some work is if you are changing to a dramatically different theme and have done any CSS editing.

    Provided you are logged in as Admin under the same username account that registered the blog go to Dashboard > Appearance > Themes, Browse themes until you find one you like and click the "activate" or the "preview" link, or type in the name of the theme you want to use when it appears.

    The theme customizer https://en.support.wordpress.com/customizer/ provides a preview function for exactly that purpose ie. so you can view what a theme will appear like prior to changing one.

    Note that every theme will have a detailed theme description page with set-up instructions and a live demo site page that you can consult. Here's an example:
    https://theme.wordpress.com/penscratch
    http://penscratchdemo.wordpress.com/
