removing comment creation time?

Post by qlaus_2 » Tue Aug 13, 2019 1:12 pm

Hello,

a while ago I got great support how to remove author's names in comments via a JavaScript (viewtopic.php?f=62&t=30536).

What I'm wondering now: is there a way to remove the comment creation date/time? Or to set it to the last save time? Searching did not help.

Why? I sometimes work "strange hours", while sitting at an airport or waking up jet lagged early, and I simply don't want to share my working time.

Thanks for your ideas!

Hello qlaus_2,

I am afraid that while the author can be changed - creation date is 'read only' through JS, and is always required, so it can not be removed, and can not be altered with JS. It might be possible with some tools that allow you low level access to a file but not with the Editor.

Regards,
Stefan

Hello Stefan,

that was not what I wanted to hear, but it's not totally unexpected.

Nevertheless, Thanks for your fast reply!

Regards,
qlaus
