  1. Is there no plugin to use for the removal of date and time on blog post comments?

  2. Hi, I am very grateful for this text. Used it and dates disappeared from posts and from comments as well. It took more than a month that they vanish in SERPs as well. This is about Metro theme, so it worked as you described it.

    Here is what the problem is. I have rating in posts so stars used to appear in SERPs, now they vanished together with the dates. Is there a way to keep them? Thank you in advance.

    • Hello Jovo,

      Can you please let us know, are you using any plugin to display star ratings in SERPs…
