How to remove dates on squarespace with simple css code

How to remove dates with a few lines of css coding on squarespace

There are several reasons why you should remove your dates. For one reason if your using squarespace (I’m not sure about other platforms), you might keep a post as a draft to finish later before publishing it. As a result, when posting it that will show the date you started your  draft. Another reason is so you don’t look like you’re posting inconsistently. This is easy-peasy! A few lines of css coding and that’s it. 


I’ve only come across a couple of tutorials on how to remove dates on squarespace. There was lots of steps to take and it didn’t work on my template I’m assuming.


I’ve heard that some templates can use css coding and others can’t but this one simple two lines of code is for Avenue . Which I found under forums closed comment (means it was successful). I sure was excited when I put the code into custom css  and went to my latest unpublished post. No dates!
