I wanted a static slideshow on the homepage for HABITAT theme.
So, in order to do this I had to create a STICKY post that always sits on the top of the homepage and then place the featured slideshow images in that sticky post.
Problem is, the date always shows us as an older date and people are starting to take notice.
Is there any way to remove the DATE (I would ideally like to keep the TWEET/RETWEET) from just that ONE sticky blog post?
As far as I know, you can’t do this. That date is hard coded into single.php, which is the PHP script that all posts are built on.
However, you can just set a static page as your homepage by going to your WordPress Reading Settings and setting the page you want. You’d then need to go into your theme editor and edit page.php. Look for a div called “date_container” and remove the date code. Bam.
I know what you are saying, but that won’t work as this is a blog first and foremost and the sticky post really just acts as a placeholder for short comments. I still need the most current blog posts to file under the sticky post that is up top. So I don’t want a static page for my homepage as I want the most current blogs to file under my sticky post.
I posted some instructions how to “remove” the date, etc. for sticky posts here: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/sliderpost-work-around (4th post).
