It’s very easy to remove the date from your posts. Simply create a (child theme) and after that add the following snippet to your newly created stylesheet:

{code type=php}

To remove the additional words for Twenty Eleven, click Editor in the admin sidebar and open functions.php. Search for the text “Posted on” and the following code will be found:
