    Please post a link to your site. Thanks!

    Hi omshankar,

    you could either hide the full post byline with a line of CSS:

    .post-byline { display: none; }

    or just the author name:

    .post-byline .author { display: none; }

    But then the by will still be visible because you can’t trigger the text because there is no CSS class and it’s not wrapped within an HTML element.

    In order to add custom CSS code to your website, you could make use of plugins like Simple Custom CSS.

    1. Copy /parts/single-author-date.php from the parent theme to the same path in a child theme. If you’re not running a child theme see this documentatino:
    http://docs.presscustomizr.com/article/239-using-a-child-theme-with-hueman

    2. Remove these three lines at the top of the file in your child theme:

    <span class="vcard author">
      <span class="fn"><?php the_author_posts_link(); ?></span>
    </span> &middot;

    If you go for the child theme approach with the mentioned code, you’ll have the same issue with the by word as when hiding the data with CSS.

    In order to get rid of the by word as well, you would need to remove these lines of code instead:

    <?php _e('by','hueman'); ?>
    <span class="vcard author">
        <span class="fn"><?php the_author_posts_link(); ?></span>
    </span> &middot;

    Please also keep in mind that when removing the code within a child theme, instead of just hiding the content with CSS, it will lead to missing structured data for the author which eventually will result in error notices in your Google Webmaster Tools.

    It means there is no way to remove author?
    Why don’t you provide one click option to hide in Theme Option like other theme provider?
    I am using frontier Theme on my another website and it has the option to hide. Please check screenshot for proof:

    If there is no option for this in your theme, then you could remove the author name as stated in the previous replies.

    But you told me there will be error notices in your Google Webmaster Tools.

    Why don’t you modify your theme and give the option to hide author like Frontier theme?

    But you told me there will be error notices in your Google Webmaster Tools.

    Only if you remove the code, not if you just hide the content with CSS.

    Why don’t you modify your theme and give the option to hide author like Frontier theme?

    Oh sorry. I thought that you are the theme owner. Sorry for the misunderstanding. 🙂

    Why we do it in Child Theme? If I remove those above lines in main theme then there would be any problem?

    You shouldn’t modify core theme files because these changes will be lost after theme updates. That’s why there are child themes in WordPress: https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    Along with the above question…

    I want the blog “author” choice to default to someone other than myself. I enter blogs every day for my client, and the author menu automatically lists me. Sometimes I forget to change it and it goes out as being authored by me. Is it possible to automatically default to my client rather than myself?

    @classypiano: If you’ve forgotten to change the author before publishing the post, then that’s actually not much of an issue as you can simply change the author for a published post as well. So it’s one click and your issue is solved. 🙂

    Besides that you could of course log in with the account of your client and publish the articles under the preferred account out of the box.

    Thank you for the advice. The problem with changing the author after I’ve published is that the subscribers immediately receive the email with the incorrect author, and the client is sensitive about that.

    But your idea of logging on as my client is a good idea. I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of that. Thanks for the recommendation!

    Hi – the following – DONT help?

    /* removing author name */
    .post-byline .author {
    display: none;
    }

    I still get the author name on posts http://ugeskemarevolutionen.dk/ugeskemarevolutionen-skaber-muligheder/
