    How do i remove the Author from posts in the Adventure journal?
    I have tried <!-- --> and also deleted code for everything that i can find that says bypostauthor and nothing has worked so far.

    you could always try using CSS to display:none . However thats a blind shot, if you post a link to the site providing a good explanation you have a much better chance of people helping you solve the issue.

    I do not know anything about CCS. the site is here I got the CSS from the tab View original style sheet. Little did i know i have dreamweaver, which opened when i clicked the link. It seems to be a little bit different to many other peoples quotes of CSS.

    }
    .comment-form-author label,
    .comment-form-email label,
    .comment-form-url label {
    display: block;
    float: left;
    width: 55px;
    }

    This is how it is listed.

    I have tried deleting everything with a reference to Author, and it didnt work. I would like to remove the author tag from the posts completely and make the blog completely anonymous.

    Can anyone help a beginner?

    Ok thanks for that. OK if you add this to the stylesheet yo had open it should solve your problem :-

    span.author, span.meta-sep {
        display: none;
    }

    Hope this helps

    Be aware as this will work if you update your theme in the future it will override the CSS change. To make sure it doesnt change in future theme updates think about learning how to create a child theme

    Blimmin marvellous!! thank you SO much!!!!

    I have saved the original style sheet, just in case.

    Child themes look VERY complicated... i tried to figure that out and couldnt.

    Yes for a beginner it is hard to get your head around but just thought I'd give you a heads up just for the future.

    Glad it helped dude

    Depending on the update and what is changed it is impossible for me to give you a definate answer. Providing the two classes span.author and span.meta-sep arent changed it will always work fine.
