Here’s how to remove wordpress post metadata in just a few simple steps.
Depending on the theme you use for your blog, not displaying the metadata can be easy or painfully difficult.
Sometimes you like everything about a theme, but their one flaw is they don’t make it easy to turn off the post metadata.
What is post metadata, you ask? It’s the date, time and author information that WordPress has for each post.
Sometimes its ok to keep it, but if you have posts that are static information (info that won’t change), you don’t really want to show a date of several years ago. People will think the information is outdated even if it isn’t.
Remove post meta data like date, author and other stuff your theme decides to show.
Example of WordPress post metadata:
2. In your browser (Firefox, Chrome, Safari) open the Developer – Inspector
3. Put your cursor in the top part of the screen where the post metadata is displayed and make a note of the name. In this case its called entry-header
4. Move your cursor in the top part of the screen and check the name of each data element… in this case, date, author, and ‘deja un comentario’.
7. In the WordPress menu – Appearance – Customize, look for the additional css section. Here you enter the elements you noted above exactly as is shown in this screenshot, including the . – make sure you use the names of YOUR elements, not mine, because the names for the elements may be different.
