    Hello,

    My author page shows on Google queries for JB Creative Media and I was wondering if there is a way to remove it from my account or prevent it from showing? I basically don't want the http://www.jbcreativemedia.com/author url to exist. Any suggestions?

    You can use this tool to generate robots.txt, then upload to your WordPress site root.

    Add /author/ to the Restricted Directories.

    Is there anyway to get rid of that page completely or can I only hide it with a robot.txt file?

    That will hide it from Search Engines. To hide it from users, then this will work
