XF 1.5 Can I actually ``hide´´ all the ''DATES info" on every board? No clocks!

    Im going inactive for a long time and thought about turning off everything that has to do with '''''''a date''''''

    I dont want the "Last Time ......" "...10minutes ago..." "3 days ago.." "1/10/16"

    Just the user who created it. Not when.
    (talking about Posts of course!)

    Thanks!! <3 Great forum tech, first forum and lovin it. Everything is idiot proof! (..except this xd)

    Assuming that you are talking about the posts, at the post template remove this code:

    <a href="{xen:link threads/post-permalink, $thread, 'post={$post}'}" title="{xen:phrase permalink}" class="datePermalink"><xen:datetime time="$post.post_date" /></a>
    Or better yet, comment it. It would be much easier to readd it back later.

    I just did this

    I found the code in a place called "post"

    And deleted it. But the dates still show. :eek:

    Thank You Brogan! I'm reading through, used the CTRL+U trick (didn't know it, thanks) and I'm searching in the CSS everything with "date"

    Is it where @wang actually told me? Because I actually did remove that but it didn't work.
    I'm gonna keep looking for date and keep trying. If anyone can help in the next 4 hours I will appreciate it (at least a hint please)!


    i think this is one of the codes
    gonna try to cut the red cable now


    strange, I can't find "lastThreadDate" on Default Style using @Brogan 's guide :\

    Im gonna keep researching.. thanks!

    The code I posted, it is to remove the date in post view. To remove it at the thread list, go to thread_list_item template and remove this code:

    <span class="startDate">,
                        <a{xen:if {$visitor.user_id}, ' href="{xen:link threads, $thread}"'} class="faint"><xen:datetime time="$thread.post_date" title="{xen:if {$visitor.user_id}, '{xen:phrase go_to_first_message_in_thread}'}" /></a></span>
    Ad this:

    <dd class="muted"><a{xen:if '{$visitor.user_id}', ' href="{xen:link posts, $thread.lastPostInfo}" title="{xen:phrase go_to_last_message}"'} class="dateTime"><xen:datetime time="$thread.lastPostInfo.post_date" /></a></dd>

    I do not understand. The coded you posted, it adds the date. If you do not want the date to display, then you must remove that code and not add it. If you remove both instances of the code that I posted above, the date for first and last messages will not be displayed on thread list.

    And something else, are you removing the codes at the template of your custom style?
  9. Recepcionist

    I made the same thing to the Custom Theme now, also thread_list

    I deleted and replaced with the code you gave me.

    I want to remove the 'Date' from the front page. Yeah!


    I deleted this from thread_list:

    <span class="startDate">,
                        <a{xen:if {$visitor.user_id}, ' href="{xen:link threads, $thread}"'} class="faint"><xen:datetime time="$thread.post_date" title="{xen:if {$visitor.user_id}, '{xen:phrase go_to_first_message_in_thread}'}" /></a></span>
    And replaced with:

    The other code you gave me:

    <dd class="muted"><a{xen:if '{$visitor.user_id}', ' href="{xen:link posts, $thread.lastPostInfo}" title="{xen:phrase go_to_last_message}"'} class="dateTime"><xen:datetime time="$thread.lastPostInfo.post_date" /></a></dd>

    Default Style
    Custom Theme

    You must remove the code I posted, and not replace it. To remove the time for the last message, remove this code from said template.

    <dd class="muted"><a{xen:if '{$visitor.user_id}', ' href="{xen:link posts, $thread.lastPostInfo}" title="{xen:phrase go_to_last_message}"'} class="dateTime"><xen:datetime time="$thread.lastPostInfo.post_date" /></a></dd>

    Thank you

    I removed both codes as you said. On default and Custom Theme.

    Still not working :(
  12. Recepcionist

    Recepcionist New Member


    Inside it worked! Inside the forum!!


    thanks a lot! :)


    But its still showing the date "outside the forum" (when you view the Home) below the nickname! :(

    What do you think it's happening @wang?
  13. wang

    wang Well-Known Member

    Are you removing it from the custom style that you are actually using it as a default and not from some other custom style?

    Can you please post here, preferably withing the html tags, the contents of the thread_list template of your custom style?
  14. wang

    wang Well-Known Member

    Can you please screenshot that area for me? That is because another template must be edited I think.
  15. Recepcionist

    Thanks @wang

    This is the url http://goo.gl/hvPgfZ

    And I want to remove the dates you see in the front page below the nick, before entering the forums/subforums.

    I edited all the thread_lists I could find, so.. i think I did it right :p

    - XenBase
    · Fusion Style <- what im using

    For that you must edit the node_forum_level_2 template. Remove this code in said template:

    <xen:datetime time="$forum.lastPost.date" class="muted lastThreadDate" data-latest="{xen:phrase latest}: " />

    At the same template, find this bit of code:

    <span class="lastThreadUser"><xen:if is="{xen:helper isIgnored, $forum.last_post_user_id}">{xen:phrase ignored_member}<xen:else /><xen:username user="$forum.lastPost" /></xen:if>,</span>
    And remove the comma.
