    Hi guys,

    First, I would like to thank you for providing such amazing support on this forum, so far every problem I had was already solved here, each with a handy css or php code ready to just copy and paste. Amazing!

    However, now I have a problem I wasn’t able to solve using existing advice. I would like to have following format of byline for my posts:

    authordate published (updated: date modified)

    On top of this I don’t want either author or those dates to be links.

    So far, using code snippets and css already shared on this forum I was able to achieve this:

    date published (updated: date modified) by author

    Here are the PHP code snippets I’m using for this:

    add_filter( 'generate_post_date_output', function( $output ) {
    	$time_string = '<time class="entry-date published" datetime="%1$s" itemprop="datePublished">%2$s</time>';
    	if ( get_the_time( 'U' ) !== get_the_modified_time( 'U' ) ) {
    		$time_string = $time_string . '<time class="updated" datetime="%3$s" itemprop="dateModified">%4$s</time>';
    	$time_string = sprintf( $time_string,
    		esc_attr( get_the_date( 'c' ) ),
    		esc_html( get_the_date() ),
    		esc_attr( get_the_modified_date( 'c' ) ),
    		esc_html( get_the_modified_date() )
    	echo sprintf( '<span class="posted-on">%1$s</span>', // WPCS: XSS ok, sanitization ok.
    		sprintf( '%3$s',
    			esc_url( get_permalink() ),
    			esc_attr( get_the_time() ),
    } );
    add_filter( 'generate_post_author_output','tu_no_author_link' );
    function tu_no_author_link() {
    	printf( ' <span class="byline">%1$s</span>',
    		sprintf( '<span class="author vcard" itemtype="http://schema.org/Person" itemscope="itemscope" itemprop="author">%1$s <span class="fn n author-name" itemprop="name">%4$s</span></span>',
    			__( 'by','generatepress'),
    			esc_url( get_author_posts_url( get_the_author_meta( 'ID' ) ) ),
    			esc_attr( sprintf( __( 'View all posts by %s', 'generatepress' ), get_the_author() ) ),
    			esc_html( get_the_author() )

    And CSS:

    .posted-on .updated {
        display: inline-block;
    .posted-on .updated:before {
        content: "(updated: "
    .posted-on .updated:after {
        content: ") "

    So it’s almost as I want it, the only problem which remains is to have the author at the beginning (and instead “by Author”, just “Author”).

    Hi there,

    Try adding this as well:

    add_filter( 'generate_header_entry_meta_items', function() {
        return array(
    } );
    add_filter( 'generate_inside_post_meta_item_output', function( $output, $item ) {
        if ( 'author' === $item ) {
            return '';
        return $output;
    }, 15, 2 );

    Let me know ๐Ÿ™‚


    It works! Thank you!
