    Within any theme, you can hide the metadata within the theme's loop PHP.
    Try this:
    Find the "single.php" and the "index.php" files by clicking on "editor" under "appearance" from the dashboard.
    Familiarize yourself somewhat with the WordPress loop.
    Here's the tricky part. Find the line that says <p class="byline"> and delete it. Be careful not to delete any PHP tags. They start and end with <? ?>, and if you screw it up, it can crash the site.
    The other option is to go into the style.css file, find the words "byline", and when you find the CSS tag, place display: none; in between the { } brackets. Good luck!
