    Hi,

    Spent all day trying to remove the author and date from showing up completely at the bottom of posts and still haven't been able to. Searched high and low on google and here but couldn't find anything that worked.

    I'm new to this, I don't know what more info is needed in this question.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Thanks

    Hi there! You could use Pages, which don't display date, author, or other meta information by default. If you go this route, you lose the grayscale circles on the home page.

    A fix for Posts is to use CSS in a child theme or a CSS plugin (like Jetpack). I recommend using Firebug for CSS work--makes it much easier.

    You'd want to target the .byline and .entry-date classes and set them to display: none in your child theme's style.css, like so:

    .byline,
    .entry-date {
       display: none;
    }

    (I haven't tested this, so you may need to fiddle around with it a bit, but that gives you the basic idea.)

    Hi Caroline,

    I have pasted this:

    .entry-date {
    display: none;
    }
    .author {
    display: none;
    }

    But it just has the text "By" still..

    Could you please help? Thanks. GREAT THEME!

    Try this instead:

    .post-date { display: none; }
