Author name to be hide

my blog will contain posts from different authors, but only one user will upload the posts.
But each post need to have its author, even than the user’s name.
So I have installed this plugin ‘Co-Authors Plus’ but the author name remain the same.

So I was thinking to remove the author name from the post, but even if I hide ‘meta data’ from single post and blog, the author name appear on the home for example.

Your help and assistance is appreciated.


Can you please provide a link to your website?

Hi Roman,
thank you for your reply.
On that link, I have seen that I need to edit the template files. If I edit them, when there will be an update, I will loose the code, is it right?


That’s right, unless you override modified .php files using a child theme. But it’s not so easy to do.

However, I’ve just realized that you just need to change author, and not add multiple authors.

So your issue seems to be much easier, please check this guide as well:

Ok thank you! I have resolved with another plugin :wink:

Great! You are welcome :slight_smile:

Please feel free to ask any other questions that you might have in future.

Kind Regards, Roman.
