Remove Author Name


I notice that when I mouse-over the author name in a post (when I am the author), the admin name of the blog is displayed in the footer of the browser and in the URL when I click the author name (when the author is me/admin).

Therefore, I want to remove the author name from the post entirely.

How can I do that?

I searched your forums and wordpress’s but have not been able to find a solution.
Your help appreciated!


Quick addition to my earlier message.

I am most interested in removing Author name that is within a Testimonial. The testimonial appears as a POST page when the MORE link is clicked from the main page.

Hello there,

Thank you for getting in touch.

You can hide it by applying the following CSS code through the Simple Custom CSS plugin?

.hentry .meta-post .byline{
  display: none;
  visibility: hidden;

I hope this reply helps.


Hello Kharis,

Thank you for your quick response.

Your recommendation solved the issue. I implemented it with the Custom CSS plugin. Excellent all around.

This Sydney theme is a beautiful thing, and everyone to whom I’ve showed the site is completely impressed with it. You’ve all done a magnificent job with it.

Thank you so much.
