Help with coding needed - increasing space between ToC and Author - HEADLINE Theme

Hi team,

please may I ask for help regarding some coding, to tailor my website using the Headline theme.

I have used the documentation provided here to create a Table of Content (ToC), successfully uploaded it and I now have the ToC working, please see test below.


I’d need your help with the following scenarios:

1: Complete removal of the Author displayed in a post

2: Making the space between the Author and the ToC bigger, so it does not overlap as seen in the picture.

3: Making the Author displayed smaller as it is now.

Thank you in advance for your help

it’ll be helpful to see it live on your site, since I don’t happen to know the selectors for the TOC.

If you want to view the site, this is my first attempt…

If you require the current code:
