Thanks. You understand very well.
Why does “The basic setting” in the customizer includes the option to hide the footer post info but not the option to hide the top post info?
It seems like the footer.entry-meta includes the bottom “edit” link. So when the the option to hide footer post info is chosen, the edit the post link disappears also. Is that intended?
How about adding Last modified (option?) to the theme in an update? Just a suggestion.
