[resolved] I don't want author's name on posts (5 posts)

    Hi. my blog has three contributers. Currently each posts credits the author. We don't want this. We don't want the author name at the top of the post. How can I remove this?

    Any help appreciated.

    This is pretty easy to do. Now, go to your single.php file and find the tag that mentions the author and delete it. Do the same thing in the index.php file. Also, you might want to read into Template Tags so if you have any other questions, you can just do it yourself and save yourself time. Hope that helps!

    Sorry, I can't find any mention of the author in the single.php file of the author. Would the text have something other than author?

    The whole tag looks like <?php the_author(); ?>. If it says something like "Posted by..." you'll have to remove that from the same line as well.
