It's not trivially easy, but you might be able to figure it out. :) The 
templates use XSLT, which XML-based formatting. 

Tellico checks several different directories to look for templates. You 
probably will want to create the ~/.kde/share/apps/tellico/entry-templates/ 
directory and put your edited template in there. Look for the Fancy.xsl file 
installed with tellico and copy it to the directory under a new name. 

Then edit it. This is untested, but down around line 433, where it has
[@name != 'title' and @name != 'id']
change it to
[@name != 'title' and @name != 'id' and @name !='cdate' and @name != 
and see if that works.
