I am using a free theme – Video by Templatic. It has been very nice and easy to use thus far, but I ran into a problem when attempting to remove the “by [author]” line underneath the posts. I can’t figure out how to do it!
Any help will be very much appreciated. Thank you.
I would recommend asking for support form Templatic, one of the template files in that theme will code for that by line, you can just comment it out. If you do this I would recommend creating a child theme so that you changes are saved when you update the theme. http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes
A quick and nasty fix is to add some custom CSS to the theme. You can either do this yourself or you can use a custom css plugin like the one that comes with the Jetpack Plugin or a plugin like this one http://wordpress.org/plugins/my-custom-css/
You can then add this css code to hide the “by [author]” line.
Please note though that this will hide all instances of the .author class.
