    Hi!

    Is there any way to remove the author name from each post? I’m the only author on my blog and I’d prefer to remove that bit if I can.

    Thanks!

    Hi Mitch,

    Thanks for your question! I’m happy to help!
    We don’t have an option for this in the theme, however if you purchase the Custom Design upgrade through WordPress you can hide that information (it will still be visible to search engines).
    This will help: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/can-i-remove-author-in-all-my-posts?replies=9

    Let me know if you have any other questions.
    Thanks,
    Angela

    Hi Angela,

    I just tried both bits of CSS code suggested in that post:
    ===
    .entry-meta {
    display: none;
    }
    ===
    .author {
    display: none;
    }
    ===
    And found that neither of them work for Photolia. And yes, I have the Custom Design upgrade.

    Any other suggestions?

    Hi Mitch,

    The CSS you added is targeting the wrong class, that’s why it’s not working. (I know you are probably not a web developer, so I’ll post the answer below). If you need to try and find what element to target, here is a handy article about using the developer tools to do so: http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/07/25/css-selectors/

    Add the code below to hide the Author name:

    .author-name {
      display: none !important;
    }

    Perfect! That was exactly what I was looking for.

    This topic is resolved and thank you very much, Caleb!
