WP Post Date Remover

by Oozman

in Wordpress Plugins

(Note: I’ve moved the plugin to a new location. More info below.) 

I’ve been working for someone that have a problem about how he can disable or remove all the dates of his current WordPress posts. Actually he can do that manually, but the problem was that he had 1000 plus post already published. And doing it manually will really be a hard time for him. So, I decided to make a solution to this problem by developing a simple plugin that do all the task.

What is WP Post Date Remover?
This is a wordpress post date remover plugin which basically removes or hide date of a particular post or page in your wordpress blog. If you’re looking for a plugin that instantly removes your page or post’s date then this plugin will be the right solution so far.

Features:

  • Once activated, it instantly remove all of your Date of your posts and pages.
  • No more complicated or hard to understand option page.
  • Works almost on all of the existing Wordpress themes out there, including Thesis Template.
  • Removes date on Home page section, Post section, and Page section of your blog

If you feel that this WordPress plugin will help you as well, then you can freely download this plugin below.

(Note: I’ve moved the plugin to a new location. Thanks.) 

If you have any questions, feature requests, or issues about this plugin, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment here. Thank you!

Oozman, thanks for great plug in. I had a hard time finding you as your plug in doesn’t pull up in WP, but I’ve found you now. Great and easy to use for a dummy like me. Thanks again.

I tried to upload this plug in and this is the message that I got:

Incompatible Archive. PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature

Any idea what that means and how I correct it to upload the date remover plugin?

Oozman April 13, 2011 at 3:44 am

Hi Paul, can you unzip the plugin in your computer? If you do, you’ll see a folder named “wp-post-date-remover” which also contains a PHP file. Let me know if you’ve done it.

Reply

Paul G. April 13, 2011 at 11:41 pm

Yeah, I have the “wp-post-date-remover” folder. It opens in notepad.
Now what?

Reply

Oozman April 14, 2011 at 2:52 am

Can you upload that folder together with its contents, on your blog folder? Specifically at this directory path: “[YOUR BLOG DIRECTORY]/wp-content/plugins”

Once you’ve done that, you can go ahead on your Blog’s Plugins and activate “WP Post Date Remover”.

Hope that will work. Let me know if you have any questions, Paul G.

Reply

Paul G. April 14, 2011 at 4:20 am

I’m simply going to “plugin”, to “add new” and then “upload” and install and it does not work. Got the same message again that I sent you before.

I tried changing the directory address that you sent to /wp-content/plugins …. that did not work either.

One more try. Any other ideas?

Paul G. April 14, 2011 at 11:10 pm

No. This blog is not connected to FTP.

Can you try downloading the plugin here: http://www.speedyshare.com/files/27978717/wp-post-date-remover.zip

And upload it on your blog’s plugins….
Let me know if it works.

Anyway, I’ve sent you the file in your email, Paul.

Let me know if you got it and if it works fine.

I got the email, download it, but was not able to upload the plugin to WP. I got the same message …. “Unpacking the package…

Thanks,
For trying but I guess this is just not going to work.
Thanks,

Rufina April 27, 2011 at 4:19 am

The plugin works! However, can you get it to also remove the word ‘on’ [posted by (author's name) on]?

Also, can you make a plugin that also removes the author’s reference and the comment link above the post?

I’m trying to get my blog to look like a website, so I don’t want Posted by ____ on ____ 0 comments on top.

Reply

Oozman April 27, 2011 at 4:34 am

Thanks for dropping by. I’m glad that it works fine with you. Anyway regarding your request, actually, this is dependent on your blog’s theme… if you can let me know of your WP theme, I can help you out. ;)

OOZMAN… you rock! This works great – thank you! Only problem I have now is I can’t get rid of the “Posted on by” on the index page. It only seems to show up there – any ideas? Thanks again, Cindy

Oozman May 7, 2011 at 7:24 pm

@Cindy: Thanks for the kind words. Glad it works for you. Regarding your query, this is possible, but the current solution is dependent on what WP theme you used. If you’re interested let me know, I can tweak the plugin for you to fit your needs. ;)

Thanks Oozman, I couldn’t find the date code in my editor, so this is great.
BUT I feel stoopid as I can’t tell if its working!
Will the dates be removed on the indexed posts when Gbot comes round again?

My posts are sales listing pages:
commercialicemaker dot info

But if you go to site:commercialicemaker dot info
you will see the indexed ones with the off-putting date as these are eBay auctions listings.

Cheers

Oozman May 30, 2011 at 4:43 am

As you activate the plugin in your wordpress installation. This plugin will automatically delete or hide the date of your post.
Regarding Google Bot, yes, the date shouldn’t be available in your post anymore.

Let me know if you have questions. Feel free.

Hi, oozman, this is nearly just what I’m looking for! Wow, what a great plug-in!

Is there a way to modify only posts in specific categories? I’m not familiar enough with the wordpress architecture to know for sure, but I have a category called “Featured” which I’d like to remove the dates from, but have the others remain.

Reply

Oozman July 9, 2011 at 3:04 am

Thanks Cory! At this moment, this is not yet supported on the plugin. But let me know, if you really want this feature. I can add it asap.

I would also love to only hide “date and time” on pages only. Hope you get the time do add this feature !! :D

Thanks man!

Derek July 15, 2011 at 1:41 am

Hey Oozman, I added your plugin and I’m getting…
“span.meta-sep { display:none; } span.author { display:none; }”
at the top of my single post on my home page. None of the author/date/category/comment headers are gone either. Am I missing something? Any suggestions?

Reply

Derek July 15, 2011 at 2:20 am

I figured out how to get rid of that odd bit of code. I’ve come to the conclusion your plugin doesn’t work with the Chameleon Theme from Elegant Themes. It’s too bad too because it looks like you got some gold here. Thanks anyway!

That’s great Derek… Anyway, it’s ok.. Thanks still for considering this plugin. But if you have any questions, feel free to ask me… ;)

Actually, you can get rid of this “Posted on” manually on your theme… Let me know if you have more question(s)?

It’s hard to check your theme because I don’t have a copy of it. But it is basically on your theme. either in functions.php or post.php. it depends on the theme that you have.

Unfortunately, this plugin won’t remove the date in your URL. I believe you can checkout “Permalinks” in your WP dashboard, this may help you remove dates on your URL.

Thank you very much! This plug-in is fabulous. I am using the twenty eleven theme and followed your instructions to remove the words “Posted on” in the functions.php file, which worked perfectly.

My only question, which someone else had also asked, is how to remove the words “Posted in Uncategorized” at the bottom of the post. I am using the post as a home page only because it allows me to use widgets and I cannot find out how to use widgets on a page with the twenty eleven theme. That would be another great plug-in.

Reply

Oozman October 30, 2011 at 6:07 pm

Actually, the only thing I can recommend is to manually dig your current theme files until you find “Posted in….” text. ;)

Reply

Phil October 30, 2011 at 7:19 pm

I got the words “Posted in” out. In content.php, I found the same code that you previously mentioned. Now, it only shows the category “uncategorized”. I just don’t know how to remove that.

Reply

Oozman October 31, 2011 at 2:29 am

Usually, the next code or characters next to “Posted in” will be the one who prints out “Uncategorized” string. This actually depends also, it may be “Some Category”… ;)

Hi Deborah, you can try extracting the plugin on your computer and then manually upload it to your wordpress “wp-content/plugins” folder.

Let me know if it works for you.

Hi Oozman: Please disregard my question about removing comments etc. from my website. I hope that this has not caused an inconvenience for you.
Thank you

You are one clever dude.

Works perfectly.

This is almost perfect. If there was a way to toggle a post or post category to remove the post information instead of a blanket remove for all posts in all categories.

Would is be possible to create a settings menu or a checkbox on each post to toggle?

I’d pay for that!

Hi Oozman,

This is a great plugin. Thank you. However, can you help me in removing the “posted on”? its not really the word posted on but in my theme its a calendar icon. Hope to get a reply. Thanks

Oozman November 14, 2011 at 10:21 pm

sure… let me know you theme. or it will be nice if you can send me zip file of it for me to look….

Thanks! Tried changing code, tried other plugins…none of it was removing the date from the chosen theme on one of the websites I set up. This one worked a treat though and was very simple to use!

Ok if your having trouble with this plug in to get the same result wich is removing the date but it still leaves “posted on” which looks bad.
you just have to go to admin–> dashboard—> settings —> general then look at your date format there should be a button that says custom in a box next to that should be dym in any order click the custom button delete dym and refresh your page not date posted .
Again that way will leave the “posted on ” just like his script did :-(

thanks! this worked effortlessly.
- can the timestamp icon and “Posted in: 4 Core Areas” (as an example) be removed as well?

thanks again and I look forward to your response! :)

chinyelu December 8, 2011 at 3:16 pm

Thanks- this plugin worked effortlessly!!!

Do you know how I can remove:
- the timestamp icon located in the post quad section in the bottom of my site?
- the “Posted in: 4 Core Areas” (example) in my site?

Thanks again and I look forward to your response. :)

what is your site and the theme your using?

Ed December 9, 2011 at 5:32 am

Hey Oozman. Great plugin. I noticed something that you may want to fix though. On this page, the first bullet of your plugin description says “Once activated, it instantly remove all of your posts and pages.” I’m guessing you meant to say it will instantly remove the *date* from all your posts…..but as it is worded, it looks a little frightening. =)

Minor detail as I’m sure everyone can figure out what you meant, but I figured I’d give you a heads up.

I tried the date exclusion plugin it seemed to work, my question is will either of these plugins remove the date for posts and pages that are already indexed by Google?

Reply

Oozman December 31, 2011 at 2:47 am

Yes, it will remove the date of all of the post whether it is indexed or not.

The plugin doesn’t seem to work with the Freelance theme; but did work with the Enterprise theme.

Reply

Maybe Freelance theme has different way of showing up the date… Which this plugin can’t target…

I am interested to remove the dates from my wordpress blog but I need someone to help me do it? Can you help? How much do you charge? Thanks!

Friday January 2, 2013 at 5:14 am

Hi there Oozman,
I’m resending my comment as maybe it disappeared by accident.
I’ve downloaded your plugin, but I can still see the date.
I downloaded another and I can see the date.

I found in my dashboard that my Emimius 2.2 Theme has an option to remove Author, Time and Date so I clicked the NO option, but still see the date.

I deactivated the plugins and following Internet info took out some code in the Index php and Single.php page but can still see the date. I’ve since put them back and its seems to make no difference
Is there anything I overlooking please?

Reply

Oozman January 2, 2013 at 8:12 am

hi, what was your website again? and the theme? I think it’s not compatible with your theme, but I’m not sure.

Rose May 15, 2013 at 9:22 pm
