    Thanks! For someone that has a phobia about tackling a blog, (I'm a perfectionist, and hate not knowing what I'm doing) I REALLY appreciate these types of tutorials, and/or tips.

    A useful share, thanks again!

    I ALWAYS disable dates on my niche blogs....because i'm treating my blog like a website, not really a blog.

    you can disable by removing the code from the template you are using btw :)
