Can the author be removed in Blog pages?

  • Answered
There doesn't seem to be an easy way to change authors or hide the author information in Blog posts. The only option I've found is to create a new user and that isn't really a great way to handle this issue. I've tried 2 plugins designed to hide the author information altogether. One worked well but caused other problems. The other only removed the author name and left the word "by" Any suggestions on how to 1) hide author information (including the word "by") and 2) Change authors without having to create a new user every time?
Hello, Sorry about the issues with hiding the author name from your post. Although you have not specifically said WordPress, I am assuming that this is the blog software you're using. If it's not then the solution I'm about to present will not apply. You would need to provide us more information on the software involved and any details on the issue. If you're working in WordPress, this topic has been addressed in the WordPress Support forums in this post. The post suggests making changes including how to remove the "by" word. The problem is that it may differ based on the theme you are using. If these solutions do not work for you, then post into that forum or speak with your theme developer. They will be the best resources to find a solution to your problem. If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know. Regards, Arnel C.
