    There is only one author on my blog, I want to remove this annoying About The Author w/ Gravatar that keeps showing up after each post:

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Settings/Discussion/Avatars. Check "Don’t show Avatars".

    Esmi, thanks... that took the avatar away, but there is still the annoying link to the author:

    http://mendingwings.net/wp/2010/09/group-pictures/

    Any other thoughts?

    I noticed that there is an author.php, I wonder if this template is designed this way...

    Maybe I should look for something a bit different?

    Try editing your template files and removing:

    <div id="author-box">
    <h2>About The Author</h2>
    <h6><a title="Posts by <?php the_author(); ?>" href="<?php echo get_the_author_link; ?>"><?php the_author(); ?></a></h6>
    </div>

    Esmi, that did it. Thank you so much.

    The actual code was:

    <div id="author-box">
    <h2><?php _e('About The Author'); ?></h2>
    <?php
    $author_email = get_the_author_email();
    echo get_avatar($author_email, '80', 'wavatar');
    ?>
    <h6><?php the_author_posts_link(); ?></h6>
    <?php the_author_description(); ?>
    </div>

    But I found it by searching author-box. You're the best. :)
