I want to hide the entry meta for author/date for my posts. I notice there is an option to do so in blog option. But my posts are not published under blog, which file should I edit to remove the entry meta? Or even better, is there a click click option allows me to hide the author/date?
Many thanksAugust 7, 2014 at 7:56 am #9872TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperAugust 7, 2014 at 11:31 pm #10170Westwood
Great question… I don’t know myself now what does this blog mean anymore… What I did is the following, create a post, and then link each post by a menu. My front page is a static page. The post type I guess is the default by generatepress?

What I want is to remove the by admin part. I used Joomla before, and I remember for each post there is a function to allow you hide the author etc. I guess a primitive way here is to remove some code in the post template?

I have a similar problem. I purchased GeneratePremium solely because I wanted to suppress the author name on posts.
Having installed it and made the appropriate changes to the blog settings, the author name was suppressed, and I was happy. However in addition to the blog pages where all posts are published sequentially, we also use the standard WordPress widget that automatically creates links to the most recent posts. If you access a post via one of these links (which is how most of our users will do it), then you see the author name. This is pretty unsatisfactory.
I tried adding the CSS suggested above, but it suppresses not only the author name, but also the date, which I would like to keep.
At the moment I feel as though I’ve wasted my $39.95 buying Premium, as it hasn’t produced the result I expected from reading the sales documentation, which says “This module gives you complete control over your blog archives and single posts (my emphasis).” It doesn’t say that it only works if you are looking at the posts on a posts page, not if you are looking at them singly, and it implies the opposite.June 26, 2018 at 2:31 am #608705DavidStaffCustomer Support
this is a really old topic and a lot has changed since then, if you have the Blog module installed (Appearance > GeneratePress > Blog) then you can disable the Author name on the Archive and the Single Post via Customiser > Layout > Blog.
If you still have any issues would you be so kind to raise a new Topic, this will give you the option to add a Site URL privately so we can investigate any issues. Let me know.June 26, 2018 at 3:32 am #608763Helen
I had disabled the Author name on the Archive but hadn’t noticed the heading at the top where it has Archive/Single, and hadn’t realised that they were in fact clickable tabs, and that I had another spot to disable the Author name.
All is now working just as I wanted, no need for a new topic. Sorry if I sounded grumpy. I do like your theme and I appreciate this very prompt response. Thanks.June 26, 2018 at 3:35 am #608768DavidStaffCustomer SupportApril 22, 2021 at 6:58 am #1744791Logic Technology
Hi, I seem to be running into the same problem. I’ve unchecked ‘hide author’ for the archives as well as the single post in the customizer, however the single post keeps displaying the author (the same goes for the date, I can’t turn that off either).
Could you tell me what I’m doing wrong? Thanks,

Could you open a new topic for this since the original topic is a very old one and things changed a lot already?
Please also provide your site in question.
Thanks!April 22, 2021 at 11:08 pm #1745508Logic Technology
Hi, thanks for the quick response. I’ve had an epiphany this morning; it was a setting in the Elements causing the author to be displayed. I removed it there and now it’s gone.April 23, 2021 at 1:55 pm #1746466YingStaffCustomer Support
Glad you figured it out 🙂
