Removing Dates From Posts - The Easy Way
I am creating this tutorial as I saw that a fellow member was struggling to find a way to remove dates from her posts and was going down a complicated way of doing this by changing the code of her website.
Removing the date from your posts does not require changing code. It is a very simple process and you can also change your mind, if you so wish, at a later date.
Why do I need to Remove Dates from My Posts?
The simple answer is you don't but many of us wish to do so. It is all about the readers experience and their perception of what they are reading. Let's say you have a post that is a couple of years or even months old. The reader may perceive the information as out of date or past its sell by date so to speak. If you have written a post only a couple of hours ago and the reader has not been to your site before, they may perceive that you are a newbie and not an authority on the subject.
None of the above is true but removing the dates from posts allows for no false perception on the part of the reader. Most seasoned internet marketers do not have dates on their site.
