    What CSS will over-ride the php that makes it so the author’s name is below the title of every post? I am the only one posting on this blog and my name does not need to be there. The blog is VividlyClear.com. I am using the Brunelleschi theme by Kit MacAllister.

    I have tried:
    .postauthor {
    display:none;
    }

    And
    #entry-author-info {
    display:none;
    }
    #entry-author-info #author-avatar {
    display:none;
    }
    #entry-author-info #author-description {
    display:none;
    }
    #entry-author-info h2 {
    display:none;
    }

  • u have to delete author name using css
    author vcard{
    display:none;
    }

    delete name then go in function.php file and delete there

    Hi,
    You will have to edit your functions.php file in your theme’s folder..
    You can find the code for this on line 151
    sprintf( '<span class="author vcard"><a class="url fn n" href="%1$s" title="%2$s">%3$s</a></span>',

    thanks

    So there is no way to edit it with CSS?

    I don’t mind editing the php really but I will have to go back in and do it again each time there is an update for the Brunelleschi theme. I was hoping not to have to do that.

    TIA!

    Well There is a way..
    If you want to remove the entire line completely then use this.

    .entry-meta {
    display:none;
    }

    This will remove by Viv Ilo Posted on May 12, 2012 .

    or use

    .meta-sep {
    display:none;
    }
    
    .vcard{
    display:none;
    }
    
    .author{
    display:none;
    }

    If you just want to remove the Post Author Name.

    thanks

    No, that did not work. I am trying some other options but am about ready to call it a night and get to bed. Thanks for your attempts to help.

    I added Brunelleschi onto the tags so maybe someone will be familiar with this theme. It is a WONDERFUL theme!!

    Hi,

    Open your main CSS file and add the following code, in the last position of the file:

    .sec-authors {
    display: none;
    }

    It should work.

    No, that did not work either! Darn! He has this well hidden!

    @nasir (or anyone else),

    I’ve uploaded the php from the area that I think you mean I would need to edit; but it is not line 151. It is lines 332 – 347 at least how I am looking at it. The code is at: http://pastebin.com/8qhWKhZW

    There is another conversation from about 8 months ago HERE but when I tried to make the change Harry suggested it crashed the site – which is not a big deal because I am messing with this on a dummy domain that I own. I will make the change on my real site when I am sure I know what I am doing.

    the css suggestions by @Nasir Zia should work;

    if you have problems to see changes to style.css immediately, try to clear the browser cache – ‘reload’ the web page (a few times), try to press ‘CTRL F5’, might be different for your your browser.

    same css approach:
    .entry-meta .meta-sep, .entry-meta .author { display: none; }

    Thank you everyone. When I put in @alchymyth‘s css just the way he had it, it worked!!

    This issue is resolved. Forgot to check it 2 weeks ago.

    Im working on this same issue….Where should I put this bit of code :

    “.entry-meta .meta-sep, .entry-meta .author { display: none; }” that @alchymyth suggested…. is this the right code?
    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    @darasy

    that depends on your used theme;

    please post your own topic and add details like the name and download link of your theme, and possibly a link to your site.

    @ alchymyth I also need to know how can I remove my name from site.. Pleas let me know where should I change code?

    Have a look at my code and let me know.
