Support » Fixing WordPress » Random ‘ADMIN’ word displaying on some website pages but not all.

  • Resolved mencon


    **This is my first time using the forum, so please forgive me if I have posted an already solved issue or posting in the incorrect forum**

    [ Moderator note: moved to Fixing WordPress. ]

    We have a ‘Services’ page on our website which links off to three other pages (also as a drop-down list from the “our service’ tab)
    * Asbestos Services
    *Commercial Construction

    The ‘Asbestos Services’ page is all good. However, with the other two pages; after I added in the element content and published the page (which was originally in as private until content was created) there was a random word ‘ADMIN’ in capitals at the bottom of the page. This occurs in both the ‘Demolition’ and ‘Commercial Construction’ pages.
    The asbestos was saved as private originally as well; but does not have the ADMIN word at the bottom.

    It is not apart of the footer as the footer is linked to all pages of the website and the ‘ADMIN’ is only on these two pages.

    I have checked the text box elements in case I accidentally somehow added the word, but it is not in either of the elements. I use the ‘Classic’ mode when creating pages as I am not good with coding, however I did look at the ‘text’ version in classic mode but couldn’t find it.

    I can only assume it is built into the page or widget somehow?

    I have not posted a link to our website as I read somewhere this is not permitted?

    Any help will be much appreciated.

  • Dear mencon,

    Perhaps the two pages showing “ADMIN” are actually in WordPress as “posts”? This could cause the “author name” to be shown at the bottom.

    Another issue could be that you are using different page templates on those pages, that include the author name in the template. To get rid of this, you could add the following custom CSS to your website (I suppose we are talking about

    .page-template-default .autor-content { display: none; }

    To add “Extra CSS”, go to the Customizer (under the Appearance menu) and look for the “Additional CSS” field. Then, just add the code above :-).

    Please let us know if this solves your issue!

    Hi Wouter,

    Thank-you ever so much. The custom CSS worked. I added the code on the specific pages in the ‘page style sheet’ section. Worked instantly.

    Much appreciated.
