    Hi everyone,

    I would love some help with this issue:

    How do I remove the date stamps from my posts? The main reason I want to do this is to remove the dates from my Google meta description.

    I tried adding the below code to the child theme’s function.php file but when I checked my posts following that the dates were still there. I know that I need to wait for Google to crawl the site before the dates get removed from the search snippets, but I expected the dates would be removed immediately from the site itself after pasting in the code. Is there something I’m missing?

    /** Remove the post info function */
    remove_action( ‘genesis_before_post_content’, ‘genesis_post_info’ );

    Thanks!

    Install the Genesis Simple Edits plugin and remove the shortcode for the date.
