    Hey guys, have a problem I cannot manage to find an answer for..I want to remove the date appearing before the description (in search results) from a Wordpress blog's posts.

    Any thoughts?

    I m not sure but I guess there is an option to remove the date completely? You can also try to search a plugin for that in the wordpress plugin page . I remember there are a couple of those! Good luck!

    The only way to remove something them wise is editing the theme php files...

    And the answer is (maybe someone else will search for this...):

    Go one by one to index.php, archive.php and single.php. Search for this line:

    <?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?>


    Replace it with :


    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">document.write("<?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?>");</script>


    It worked for 2 of my blogs. (always backup first!).


    Cheers

    Can't you change that in permalinks just for all the other pages?

    Example: /%postname%/ instead of /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/

    I had that permalink already, problem was that in SERPS before the description the date was appearing, which I hated. Now it's gone..

    Follow-up question. Can you make the date dynamic, so it can be changed?

    e.g. All content appears to be no more than 30 days old

    Can this be done in a way that is visible to a viewer, but not to googlebot?
