How do I remove subscribers from my author page? (9 posts)

    Hi, I have recently added an author page to my website but cannot figure out a way to remove all the spammy looking subscribers from it? It seems that anyone who signs up and leaves info in their bio is added to my author page...

    How to I fix this?

    I need to either change the privileges of subcribers or edit the code and permissions of my author.php file.

    Neither of these things I can do!

    Any ideas??

    The page is here: http://datenightagenda.com/authors/

    The blog I need help with is datenightagenda.com.

    Can you please attach your author.php file using PasteBin?

    Well, I can't seem to find a good way. And neither I am good in PHP.
    You can wait for someone else to respond.

    I don't think this has anything to do with author.php template.

    Did you try delete those users from your WP site ?
    WP admin dashboard > Users

    Thanks - yeah I can just delete the comments by these users. Or delete the users altogether. However, how do I stop this from happening again? Is there a setting to change 'subscribers' from posting anything?

    Take out the Meta widget in the footer, setup your own choice of links list under Custom Menu and use that menu in the widget, or use Text widget and put some nice words there. This will reduce link to registration page.

    Is there a setting to change 'subscribers' from posting anything?

    Subscriber doesn't have that capability by default.
