Getting rid of date and time

I have created an epub food recipe book using a newspaper style recipe. Each food category links to an rss file. After downloading, all the articles in each section have the time and date appended. How do I get rid of that. I tried timefont = "
Thanks

We need more info to know where it's coming from and what you want removed. Are you objecting to the date on the RSS feed list page or something on each article page?

This book is set up exactly like a newspaper recipe. I have several categories in the book that each has its own rss link. After Front Page you get a list of categories. When I click on that I get the articles in that category.These all have a date and time attached to the end of the article heading. Here is my recipe. It downloads quite fast.
Spoiler:

Code:
class AdvancedUserRecipe1289709253(BasicNewsRecipe):
    title          = u'Laura Recipes test'
    oldest_article = 100
    max_articles_per_feed = 100
    timefmt = ''
    use_embedded_content  = False

    remove_javascript     = True
    extra_css = '''
        h1{font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-weight:bold;font-size:large;}
        h2{font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-weight:normal;font-size:small;}
        body{font-family:Arial,sans-serif;font-size:small;}
        a.feed {text-decoration: none;background-color: none;}
        a.article {text-decoration: none;background-color: none;}
        p{font-family:Arial,sans-serif;font-size:small;line-height: 1.2;margin-bottom: 0;margin-left: 2pt;
        margin-right: 2pt;margin-top: 0;padding-left: 0;padding-right: 0;text-align: left;text-indent: 1.5em}
        '''
   
    feeds       = [(u'Soup', u'http://www.members.shaw.ca/conventions/Recipes/soup.rss'),
                        (u'Muffins', u'http://www.members.shaw.ca/conventions/Recipes/muffins.rss'),

I exploded the epub and then tried adding this to my recipe but it has not worked
remove_tags = [dict(name='span', attrs={'class':'articledate'})]

Tried this and it removed my articles
remove_tags = dict(name='span', attrs={'class':['articledate']})



I have also successfully removed the underline from a.feeds and a.article but have not yet solved how to remove the background shading.

That won't work - remove_tags operates on the input and the article date is part of the output.

The article date at the point you are referring to is part of the standard recipe structure. You can control the date with populate_article_metadata. but I don't recall it being removed completely. Perhaps Kovid can advise, or you can search the code base.

Thanks for your help. It is not critical. Just thought it might look more like a real book.
Can you help with removal of shading from a.feeds and a.article
I have tried backgound-color and background css settings with no luck.
