I just upgraded to DW Q&A Pro from the free package in the hopes it would give me the ability to remove the dates asked and answered from the postings. We are using it on a vintage blog, rather than as a bulletin board system, so the dates have no relevance because the questions are not time-sensitive.

Since I can’t remove the dates using the “settings” functionality, can they be removed using a CSS entry?

Thanks in advance for your help,

To remove the time in the question list, you can create the dwqa-templates/styles/default folder in your theme folder and then copy/paste the files from wp-content/plugins/dw-question-answer-pro/templates/styles/default folder into the default folder that you have created in your theme folder.
And now, you can open the content-question.php file, and find the line 14:
Replace it with the following code:

<?php printf( __( '<span><a href="%1$s">%2$s%3$s</a> %4$s</span>', 'dwqa' ), esc_url( $latest_activity['userlink'] ), $latest_activity['useravatar'], $latest_activity['username'], $latest_activity['text'] ) ?>

Hi Dominic,

I don’t have access to edit the plugin files. I’m a technical user, not a developer, so am hoping there is a way to make this change using custom CSS in my theme. Is that possible?

I’ve spoken with the theme support team and he’s the one who sent me back to you with this comment:

Hi there,
I am afraid this is not a theme but a plugin (dw-question-answer-pro) file. Please consult plugin developers on how to edit this file.
