Remove author links

I am the sole “author” on my blog, so I would like to remove all links and references to author(s) from posts (existing, and future), etc. Is that possible? If so, how? Thanks!

Which theme are you using? Casper?

Yes, I am using the default theme. Apologies for neglecting to mention it.

Try pasting this into your site’s code injection:

<style>
.author-list,
.author-name {
    display: none;
}
</style>

That will hide the author (icon, name, and link) on single posts, but leave name and link on the main page, and on the next/previous mini-cards at the bottom of a post. Close, but no cigar. :slight_smile:

Do you have a URL?

Yes, https://ghost.collantes.us/. I have the feeling this will not be fully possible without editing the theme itself.

Try this:

<style>
.author-list,
.author-name,
.post-card-byline-content span:first-of-type {
    display: none;
}
.post-card-byline-content {
    margin-left: 0;
}
</style>

That did it, thank you! I know this is a CSS override, but, will this stop the unmodified theme from being updated on future updates?

Glad to hear it. And no, just leave the code there and you’re all good to go with future updates.
