Support » Theme: Hatch » [Theme: Hatch] Change "Author" to "Artist"

  • Resolved givesuccess


    I have a sit I am working on and they wanted me to change the post “Author” to say “artist”. I looked thru the files and could not find where to change it bc It looks like it is part of a shortcode “byline” or something. Can you help me find where to make that change in code. I dont wish to use a filter to change every instance of one to the other!

    Also when I first made posts it had area to choose a post type but now if i look to edit area it no longer shows place to change “post type” And it is not in the screen options to show it either. This is odd.

    site is:

    Thanks for the theme and the help!

  •… Not Working “Database Error”.

    Thnx …fixed now! This site started out as diff demo-ing domain name and i forgot it used same db when i moved it. I deleted demo site And db! So when u ried perm doamin ..w/o db it gave that error ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had back ups tho so no prob …just 24 hrs agao so no major prob!

    Hi there,

    Seems that the Author is only shown on the “Single-View” so you have to go to your Theme dolder and locate the “single.php”. There loo for “author” or the <div> with class “byline byline-author”, there you will find it. If not, locate “function.php” and search for the same.

    Some themes are outsourcing the exact code into sub-folders such as “inc” or something like that. there you have to look for files called something with “loop” in them. One of the solution would solve the problem.

    I found it in post.php by searching for “Author:” – changed to “Artist:” and am very happy now! Thanx for the help everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

    That is a strange Theme then. usually they would need to make it into single.php. Doh ^^

    But at least it is solved!

    I am using a diff theme now… but Hatch is still a cool theme! they just wanted more sidebar action on all pages…lol

    I don’t have to worry about the artist-author thing bc it uses- About ‘user-names’ instead.

    They like the new theme a lot btr! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well, then I’d say the probรถlem is solved and everything is cool. Congratulation on a running WordPress with a Theme you like ๐Ÿ˜€
