    How can I remove the reference to the author in the byline but retain the date?

    In the premium version you can added the following option to the shortcode.

    byline_fmt=" ,dp"

    Note the space before the first comma. This is the separator.
    dp=post date
    dm=post maintenance date

    Thanks for that, but I tried it & it's still showing the "By admin" author info - am I missing something?

    Compare your code to the examples on the tpg_get_posts website. This does require the activation of the premium version

    great - I got it now! I checked my version and I hadn't properly updated , it was showing version 0.0.0(!) - I updated to 3.0 and the byline is now displaying as required.

    Thanks for your support!

    cswaim: I am considering going premium too for the magazine style format. but I also want to control the fields that are displayed in the post list. for example, I want title of course, but then excerpt (not byline), and parts of the byline like author to be included in the footer metadata. mix things up a bit. and control the css too if possible. Do you have documentation about using all these "dp" and "dm" codes and any premium codes? and in a different post I saw that the mag format may need to be formatted with css. Do you have details about that online too, basically the premium details?


  7. Do you have details about that online too, basically the premium details?

    For "premium" details please contact the plugin author on his own site.

    At risk of being voted off the internet, I would like to respond to this.

    The doc is provided in the settings of the basic plugin. That's all there is as far as doc goes. I tried having doc online and got complaints that is was not in the plugin, so all doc is in the base plugin. Examples on how to use the pluging can be found at http://www.tpginc.net/wordpress-plugins/plugin-tpg_get_posts/. The pull down menu shows most of the various options.

    And to sneak in a promo....the extension does allow formatting of byline and metadata. See the examples and look at the doc to see if it does what you need.

    If you have questions to specific to the extension, please contact me directly at my website.

    Have just found this post - I want to get rid of the author name on my homepage and am struggling to make it work - I have followed the instructions on the link but its not making a difference to the home page - author name is still appearing every time.
