Wordpress - remove metadata from Posts

Hi

I'm building a site for a business and need to remove the date, author, comment numbers, etc. from posts when they are displayed, as the posts dictate the images on the homepage (so they need to be present but not look like blog posts).

Can anyone tell me what I need to delete from single.php to prevent this metadata from being displayed?

(Can post the single.php if needed).

Thanks

Code is: -

 get_header(); ?>

<div class="section-container clearfix">

<div class="<?php echo $layout;?> text">

	<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
		
        <p class="breadcrumb"><?php the_breadcrumb(); ?></p>
                
		<h1 class="index-title"><?php the_title(); ?> <?php edit_post_link('Edit',' / ',''); ?></h1>        
            
        <div <?php post_class('section single') ?> id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    
            <ul class="meta">          
               <li class="meta-time"><?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?></li>
               <li class="meta-comment"><?php comments_popup_link('Leave a comment &#187;', 'One comment so far &#187;', '% comments &#187;'); ?></li>
            </ul>
            
            <?php the_content('Continue reading &raquo;'); ?>
	
			<?php wp_link_pages(array('before' => '<p><strong>Pages:</strong> ', 'after' => '</p>', 'next_or_number' => 'number')); ?>
        
            <div class="navigation clearfix">
                <div class="alignleft"><?php previous_post_link('<p>&laquo; Previous Post</p><p>%link</p>') ?></div>
                <div class="alignright"><?php next_post_link('<p>Next Post &raquo;</p><p>%link</p>') ?></div>
            </div>	
        
            <div id="comments" class="comments">
                <?php comments_template('/comments.php',true); ?>
            </div>
	
		</div><!--Post Ends -->
        
</div><!-- Layout Ends -->


<div class="aside aside-right-image-<?php echo $layout; ?>">
	<?php if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) { ?>
        <?php the_post_thumbnail('single-image'); ?>
    <?php } ?>
	<?php if (strlen($aboutpost) > 0) { ?><h3><?php echo $aboutpost; ?></h3> <?php } else { ?><h3>About this post</h3><?php } ?>	
		<ul>
        	<li class="meta-category">Posted in <?php the_category(', '); ?></li>
		   	<?php the_tags('<li class="meta-tag">Tags: ', ', ', '</li>'); ?>
		</ul>
</div>


<?php endwhile; endif; ?>

<?php get_sidebar(); ?>

</div>

<?php get_footer(); ?>

It's lines 15 through 18 that need removed, but on the homepage - you'll probably need to paste your index.php code here.

<ul class="meta">          
               <li class="meta-time"><?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?></li>
               <li class="meta-comment"><?php comments_popup_link('Leave a comment &#187;', 'One comment so far &#187;', '% comments &#187;'); ?></li>
            </ul>

Thank you. The metadata doesn't appear on the Homepage, so all good there. :)

I've made the change to single.php but when viewing the Post page, you can still see the path to the post above the post: -

Bartholomew » Uncategorized » Post 2

and
 
Previous Post, Next Post and  "comments are closed" caption, as attached screenshot.

Is this editable from single.php also? Screenshot of post area

Yes, comments section is 24 to 27.

<div class="navigation clearfix">
                <div class="alignleft"><?php previous_post_link('<p>&laquo; Previous Post</p><p>%link</p>') ?></div>
                <div class="alignright"><?php next_post_link('<p>Next Post &raquo;</p><p>%link</p>') ?></div>
            </div>

The other is the breadcrumbs, line 9.

<p class="breadcrumb"><?php the_breadcrumb(); ?></p>

Open in new window


The breadcrumbs can be removed by deleting that line, but if you want to alter it - the real code would be in the functions.php file.

You could also display none using CSS to remove them on all pages posts and categories by adding this to your css
.entry-meta {
display: none !important;
}

Open in new window


You may need to change the selector for the meta. Here is another example:
.meta {
display: none !important;
}

Open in new window


And one more:
.postmeta {
display: none !important;
}

Open in new window


If you can't find your selector, send a link and I will help you.

Dzynit,

Deleted the code you advised and it's looking much better, thanks. The only thing left is the lower white area where it says 'comments are closed'. Any thoughts..?

(jeremyjared74: - many thanks for your input)

That's lines 29 thru 31:


<div id="comments" class="comments">
                <?php comments_template('/comments.php',true); ?>
            </div>

You're welcome, but did you find it?

After looking at your code above I see you need to add this to the style.css:
.meta {
display: none !important;
}
