How to Remove Dates From Your Blog Posts - Easy Way

Last Update: July 26, 2018

I used to look for how to remove dates from blog posts myself, then I found out there is a plug in for it.

Its called WP Date Remover, and it is super easy to use.

Install WP Date Remover

From your Dashboard, scroll down on the left side to Plug Ins >> Add New


Then on the right side, search for "WP Date Remover"


It should just pop up as the first one, but just in case, it looks like this





Once you install it, make sure you activate it. Then go to Settings.

Select the Posts and Pages you want to remove the dates from, then Save.


Whether or not you should remove dates is a big debate, but I do remove dates from my posts and pages that I feel are timeless. But I don't remove dates from all of my posts, just some.

I hope this helps!

Thanks Jim. I have been vaguely thinking about this since I started my website. I know when I am googling I look at the date and if it is old I will normally ignore it so I think at least some of my posts need the date removed.

Will be saving this blog and putting it on my to do list!

Best Wishes
Hazel
