How to remove "created by" on SharePoint blog post item?

It tells you how to remove the created by, it rocks! But I am still trying to figure out how to hide the "created on" (or published, whatever) date as well.

Anyone able to help please?

  • I see two solutions in your link, which method did you use to hide the Created By portion? If you went with css, you should be able to use IE dev tools to locate the Created On, and hide it as well.

In SharePoint 2013 PublishedDate property is rendered as a div element:

<div class="ms-metadata">Saturday, May 24, 2014</div>

The same way is rendered Author property.

CSS solution how to hide PublishedDate and Author properties in Blog view:

div.ms-metadata {
   display: none;
