If you use Google's Blogger service to write articles for your blog and wish to remove the date and extensions like /year/month/date, .html, .php, etc. from your blogger blog, then you’re in the right place and I am going to show you the simplest way to achieve this in no time!

To do that, first open Blogger and head over to the Themes tab, and click Edit HTML.

Then Seach for term </head> by pressing the Ctrl+F key combination.

Now, copy the below code and paste it just above the </head> tag.

<script type="text/javascript">
//<![CDATA[    
var urlTotal,nextPageToken,postsDatePrefix=!1,accessOnly=!1,useApiV3=!1,apiKey="",blogId="",postsOrPages=["pages","posts"],jsonIndex=1,secondRequest=!0,feedPriority=0,amp="&"[0];
function urlVal(){
    var e=window.location.pathname,t=e.length;
    return".html"===e.substring(t-5)?0:t>1?1:2}
    function urlMod(){
        var e=window.location.pathname;
        "p"===e.substring(1,2)?(e=(e=e.substring(e.indexOf("/",1)+1)).substr(0,e.indexOf(".html")),history.replaceState(null,null,"../"+e)):(e=(e=postsDatePrefix?e.substring(1):e.substring(e.indexOf("/",7)+1)).substr(0,e.indexOf(".html")),history.replaceState(null,null,"../../"+e))}
        function urlSearch(e,t){var n=e+".html";
        t.forEach(function(e){
            -1!==e.search(n)&&
            (window.location=e)})
        }
        function urlManager(){
            var e=urlVal();
            0===e?accessOnly||urlMod():1===e?getJSON(postsOrPages[feedPriority],1):2===e&&(accessOnly||history.replaceState(null,null,"/"))
        }

            var n=document.createElement("script");

            var t=[];
            if(useApiV3||void 0===urlTotal&&(urlTotal=parseInt(e.feed.openSearch$totalResults.$t)),useApiV3){
                try{e.items.forEach(function(e,n){
                    t.push(e.url)})
                }catch(e){}
                nextPageToken=e.nextPageToken

                })
            }catch(e){}
            urlSearch(window.location.pathname,t),urlTotal>150?(jsonIndex+=150,urlTotal-=150,getJSON(postsOrPages[feedPriority],jsonIndex)):nextPageToken?getJSON(postsOrPages[feedPriority]):secondRequest&&(nextPageToken=void 0,urlTotal=void 0,jsonIndex=1,secondRequest=!1,0===feedPriority?(feedPriority=1,getJSON("posts",1)):1===feedPriority&&(feedPriority=0,getJSON("pages",1)))
            }
    function bloggerJS(e){
        e&&(feedPriority=e),
        urlManager()
}
bloggerJS();
