This is my first encounter with WordPress (I apologise for the default styling and design!) and I thought how better to start my entry into the blogging world than with a quick post about WordPress itself.
The small issue in question was trying to remove the date link & author name from blog posts in WordPress, whilst still displaying the date rather than remove the line completely. Since I’m going to be the only author there’s little point displaying my name on every post.
OK so I’m using Twenty Ten default theme at the moment (the below code process will be different with other Themes). From the editor in the Appearance menu, select the functions.php file and find the entry (on line ~440):
<span class="%1$s">Posted on</span> %2$s <span class="meta-sep">by</span> %3$s
and change it to the following, which gets rid of the author part:
<span class="%1$s">Posted on</span> %2$s
To remove the link from the date, find the following line of code a couple of lines further down:
<a title="%2$s" rel="bookmark" href="%1$s"> <span class="entry-date">%3$s</span></a>
and remove the a tags so it looks like:
Presto! We now have all blog posts with a non-linked date.
