How can I omit the date from being displayed when exporting to LaTeX from emacs org-mode?

This (within the .org file) works to omit the date when exporting to ascii:

#+OPTIONS: timestamp nil

But it doesn't take effect when exporting to LaTeX.

Nor does this work:

#+ATTR_LATEX: :date nil

This in the .org file:


Gives you this in the .tex file:


Guess that would have to be the best solution ...


You made a slightly mistake in the options syntax. It should be:

#+OPTIONS: date:nil
