Remove author and time (7 posts)

    I know this has been covered many times, but I still can't find the solution. My posts at http://www.roswellcentennial.org are still showing the author and time posted. I have edited the index.php and single.php as well as page.php and removed the lines for that, but it continues to appear - only on the posts, not on the pages.

    Here is my single.php

    <?php get_header();?>
    <div id="content">
    	<?php if(have_posts()):?>
    	<?php while(have_posts()):the_post();?>
    	<div class="post">
    		<h2><a href="<?php the_permalink();?>" title="<?php the_title();?>"><?php the_title();?></a></h2>
    		<div class="entry-content">
    			<?php the_content()?>
    			<?php wp_link_pages();?>
    			<div class="editlink"><?php edit_post_link('Edit','<p>','</p>');?></div>
        <?php endwhile;?>
        <?php endif;?>
        <div class="pagecomments">
        	<?php comments_template();?>
        <div class="navigation"></div>
    <?php get_sidebar();?>
    <?php get_footer();?>

    I need to revise this:

    It is the listing of the posts in the categories that is showing the author and info. What php file would that be?

    Looks like you're using a premium theme at


    You'll have to check with the developer there since those files aren't available to the public.

    Yes, I paid for it. All their files are easily edited and there aren't that many. It is just that one page.....

    Not exactly sure what you want to get rid of -- but if it's the author and date on posts on this page:

    you can "hide" that line of text using CSS -- add the display: none; to the CSS on line 292 of style.css

    .entry-meta h1 {
        background-color: #FDF8F1;
        color: #B7A795;
        display: none;
        font-size: 12px;
        font-weight: normal;
        text-decoration: none;
        width: 67%;

    But be forewarned that unless you are using a child theme or custom CSS, the change will be overwritten when you update the theme...

    Sorry but without seeing your files, it's hard to say.

    Try using an html editor and search for the code you removed before in all files.

    Example: <?php the_author() ?>
