    New to WP and need to know how to disable the author and category link from my Front Page welcome message?

    I guess it´s in your theme folder/index.php.

    Thanks Evita. What exactly would I be looking for in the folder?

    yourdomain/wp-content/themes/yourtheme/index.php
    Look after <?php the_author() ?> and <?php the_category(', ') ?> or something similar and read the codex - otherwise you can´t work with WordPress.

    What Evita means is that it is in the theme file used to create your home page - if that author/category link you want to remove is in the sidebar, then it would be in sidebar.php, if it's in the content (post) then it would be in the index.php file, unless you are using a custom homepage, called home.php.

    Hope this is enough to help you, if not then If you could post a link to your page and say specifically what you want removed, you can get better help.
