    Hi I want to know if it is possible to turn off the date function in published wordpress articles. So it looks like a static html page - And that in Google the search results don't show up as "Posted on 02-04-09..."

    Edit your template files and remove the calls to the date related functions. Look in wp-content/themes/yourtheme and edit single.php, index.php, archive.php, category.php and whatever other pages you want to remove the date from.

    Normally the function you want to remove is the_time(). Just replace it with a   so you don't mess up the spacing of your theme.

    Also check our single / page.php on the off chance it's in there for you.

    CTRL+F "Time" and "Date"

    There are some plugins like "date exclusion" that will remove it, but it only works for me on some themes. If it doesn't, I go in and do it manually as the others have suggested.

    I'd do it manually if possible. The less PHP calls and plugins the better.
