    i have looked and i can not find this question on the spun forum, if it is here i apologize i must have missed it.

    inside each "post" at the bottom it shows my email address and a date, i am assuming it is when i created the "post" and the email address is shows is my admin login email. when you hover over it it also displays text that says "view all posts by..." i do not want any of that info to be displayed is there a way to delete that so it looks like a static web page?

    Start by setting up a Child Theme if you haven't done so already: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    ok done. i hope i did it right. i followed the instructions all the way to placing a file in my spun-child directory called style.css and inside that file i placed this in there
    /*
    Theme Name: Spun Child
    Description: Child theme for Spun
    Author: Spicelean
    Template: spun
    Version: 0.1.0
    */
    @import url( "../spun/style.css" );

    it shows my email address

    That's not visible to other people by the way, I don't think so.

    actually it was until just about 2 minutes ago when i updated my admin page in wordpress. so now at the bottom of each of my posts it shows my company name. i am still wondering if there is a way to just not have that footer text show up at all? thanks andrew

    Can you link a page with the issue?

    Copy 'content-single.php' from Spun and paste it into your Child Theme directory.

    sure. if you look at the bottom of this post, it shows text that reads
    "October 3, 2013 by Look Management EDIT"

    how can i not have that show up at all?

    Try replacing all of the code in 'content-single.php' (of your Child Theme) with the code from this PasteBin'd page: http://pastebin.com/DB7nDTbX

    ok i tried that but when i have my child theme active and i go to editor it only shows this on the right hand side, it does not have none of the many options as when the parent theme is active

    Templates
    This child theme inherits templates from a parent theme, Spun.

    Styles
    Stylesheet
    (style.css)

    Sorry you may have missed this step when we cross-posted:

    Copy 'content-single.php' from Spun and paste it into your Child Theme directory.

    when you say copy and paste it into my child theme directory do i make a new file named that with all that text inside it?

    Sure you can do that instead, when you make the new file name it "content-single.php".

    ok i did it, my file manager gave me a copy option so i just copied it to the directory. so now my spun-child directory shows two files.

    content-single.php
    style.css

    is that how it should look?

    If you're wondering where to put your CSS modifications now that you've created a Child Theme, you can put them in either your Custom CSS plugin or Child Theme style.css file. It's more of an organisational choice.

    ok thanks andrew, you are a great help. i like the css manager plug in. i have been taking other ideas from other questions and using that so thank you.

    There's something I forgot to say when I advised you to create a Child Theme.

    The Spun theme uses a special 'svg' file to make the circle animations work in Firefox and it refers to a file in the 'inc' folder.

    Now that you've got a Child Theme you need to copy the 'inc' folder from Spun (this time you need to copy the folder) and paste it into your Child Theme directory. So you end up with the 'inc' folder sitting alongside your 'style.css' and 'content-single.php' files.
