CUSTOM CSS,  TUTORIALS

How to delete the meta tag, author and post date from posts.

Great question. I might add an option for this in the future if this is a popular request. In the mean time, you may simply use a little CSS to achieve your goal. Insert the appropriate CSS into your Custom CSS Box under the Appearance tab.

/* Here is how to hide all your post entry meta. This include hiding your share buttons as well. */
.entry-meta {
    display: none;
}

/* Hide just your meta buttons and meta links. This will leave your share buttons on the page */
.entry-meta-buttons,
.entry-meta-links {
    display: none;
}

    I used this code which worked great. However, how can I add the Date like this:
    Date: December 5, 2014 Author: Ziggyzip Tags: entree, featured, holiday, side dishes

        Hi Tisha,

        The only way to do that would be to customize the theme file. Create a child theme using WordPress Canvas as your parent theme, and in your functions.php, you can overwrite the default function wordpresscanvas_entry_meta_format_button() with your own post meta information, displayed the way you want it.
