Need to Unclutter my wordpress powered site?

by thomasr 3 replies
I want to remove the Feed button and the datepost author info from my wordpress powered site. I want it to look more like a website than a blog.

How do I do this? Edit the main templete file? What about the single post? Or am I way off?

    Feed stuff is in the header.php

    The Info stuff is in the page.php callled metadata

    Can't really tell you more with out knowing the theme.

        Before doing anything BACK UP the original...always best to be safe

        In header.php delete lines 49 to 55 :

        Code:
        <div id="feedarea">
        <dl>
            <dt><strong><?php _e('Feed on','ml');?></strong></dt>
            <dd><a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>"><?php _e('Posts','ml');?></a></dd>
            <dd><a href="<?php bloginfo('comments_rss2_url'); ?>"><?php _e('Comments','ml');?></a></dd>
        </dl>
        </div><!-- end id:feedarea -->
        In page.php remove lines 10 and 11 :

        Code:
                            <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="<?php _e('Permanent Link to','ml');?> <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
                            <p class="post-info"><?php the_time(__('M jS, Y','ml')) ?> <?php _e('by','ml');?> <?php the_author_posts_link() ?> <?php edit_post_link(__('Edit','ml'), '', ' | '); ?> </p>
        In single.php remove lines 12 and 13 :

        Code:
                            <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="<?php _e('Permanent Link to','ml');?> <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
                            <p class="post-info"><?php the_time(__('M jS, Y','ml')) ?> <?php _e('by','ml');?> <?php the_author_posts_link() ?> <?php edit_post_link(__('Edit','ml'), '', ' | '); ?> </p>
        In index.php remove lines 35 to 38 :

        Code:
                            <p class="postmetadata"><?php if (function_exists('the_tags')) the_tags(__('Tags: ','ml'), ', ', '<br/>'); ?> </p>
                        </div>
        
                        <p class="postmetadata"><?php _e('Posted in','ml');?> <?php the_category(', ') ?> | <?php comments_popup_link(__('No Comments »','ml'), __('1 Comment »','ml'), __('% Comments »','ml'),'',__('Comments Off','ml')); ?></p>
        Should do the trick...
