How do I prevent the date I posted showing on posts? (

I thought I'd fixed this problem with this custom CSS, but no:

.entry-meta .byline {
display: none;

footer.entry-footer {
display: none;

Hi Marilyn,

Can you take a screenshot of the places where the date is appearing? I can write some CSS once I know what needs to be hidden.

If you're talking about the date located next to the comment bubble on the frontpage, use this:

abbr.published {display:none;}

Ray -

Thanks! This did work to remove the date. Is there a way for me to remove that gray bar with the pop-up bubble entirely?

I really appreciate you replying to this!

Replace the above with this:

body.home .entry-meta {display:none;}
