    I understand that if I want to change the text before the author, within the blog, I have to use a filter. But where do add this filter? In a function file? (I’m having a child theme, but not really using it, acutally not using it at all) or Using Code Snippets like in https://docs.generatepress.com/article/adding-php/ ?

    Besides, I really don’t know how to write this :
    Instead of having $date par $author
    I wish to have $date – $author

    add_filter( ‘generate_post_author_output’,’vero_no_by_to_post_author’ );

    function vero_no_by_to_post_author ( $output ) {
    return ‘<i class=”fa fa-user-circle” aria-hidden=”true”></i> ‘ . $output;

    ( by the way, in French, “Par” would be better than “de” – maybe I should just change this )

    Thanks in advance for your help ,

    Hi there,

    A plugin like this might help: https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/say-what/

    The “text domain” you need is: generatepress

    Hi there,

    Try this if you don’t want to use a plugin:

    add_filter( 'generate_post_author_output', 'tu_change_author_by_text' );
    function tu_change_author_by_text() {
    	printf( ' <span class="byline">%1$s</span>',
    		sprintf( '<span class="author vcard" itemtype="http://schema.org/Person" itemscope="itemscope" itemprop="author">- <a class="url fn n" href="%1$s" title="%2$s" rel="author" itemprop="url"><span class="author-name" itemprop="name">%3$s</span></a></span>',
    			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() )

    You can add it like this: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/adding-php/


    hello tom, thanks a lot,
    sorry, but this code generated many errors : unexpected “)” and even one unexpected “}” …
