  • Resolved dongermibbs


    I can’t find any way of stopping the author name and time stamp appearing on every post. I thought there were settings in WP that stopped these from occurring but I cannot seem to find them anywhere.

    Is it more complex than I thought?

    Yes, it is. You will probably need to start customising your theme via a child theme or a custom CSS plugin.

    Here’s the CSS code you can use to hide the author and timestamp at the top of each article:

    .entry-header .entry-meta { display: none; }

    Hope that helps!

    Konstantin, just a word to say thanks for your excellent design. I use it on both my blogs as the layout, font and design suits my need well. It would be nice to modify my sites to an extent, but not a great deal.

    The code you cut and pasted, can I go ahead and enter that into the html pane each time I write a posting, or do I have to go into the EDIT functions in wordpress?

    I tried cutting and pasting it into the top of each article via the TEXT option in the editor when composing (or editing) a post, but it does nothing. Just shows up in the preview.

    Shame really as I may have to switch themes, purely because I think time and date stamps like this can put people off from reading articles as well as push you down in Google search results.

    Hi there! No, as @esmi mentioned in the comment above, you have to use a Custom CSS plugin or a child theme. Hope that helps!
