How can I hide the date on blog posts?

Always be sure to remove any code you add that does not work.

To add this snippet of custom CSS to your site, just click the CSS button inside the Style Editor and paste the code below:


.display-icons-in-post-footer .entry-date {
 display: none;
}

That should do the trick.

To hide the date only in one specific blog, preface this code with the unique collection id class found on the BODY tag. In your case, this class is collection-51bbee6be4b0405092e5f752 – so the snippet would look like this:

[code].collection-51bbee6be4b0405092e5f752.display-icons-in-post-footer .entry-date {  display: none;}

I'm wondering the same thing - would love to have the dates show on my main blog - but the section{s} that I'm running as a directory - I want to have the dates hidden. Right now I have the dates hidden on all pages which isn't my ideal choice.

If you use right-click and inspect the element (the date on the blog post) it will reveal a class. In my template it is the following:


<time class="published" datetime="2015-02-13" id="yui_3_17_2_2_1423862213264_2970">February 13, 2015</time>

The class of the date element is published. I can then open up the Custom CSS Editor and enter the CSS below and quickly get rid of the date. As you can see the class is referred to with a dot “.”

.published { display: none }

Hi. I am trying to do exactly the same thing with a site I am creating. Where do I find the collection id class for my blog. The site is https://heseltinegallery.squarespace.com (pw: michael) and the blog page I want the dates not to show on is Meet the Committee. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Lynne

Hi, I have the same problem and no idea how to solve it 😞 I tried the codes mentioned above but none of them seem to be doing the magic 😞

Your site is v7.1. The posts in this thread are pretty old and most predate v7.1 so the CSS selectors won't work.

You probably don't need CSS for this task. Edit the blog page section and change the format settings as desired.
