    Commenters are being acknowledged as Post Author on my site, how can this be fixed? Check this page out which has some comments Gr8CanineDogs. There is only me listed in the settings as administrator so I’m not sure what’s wrong and I’ve tried everything to fix it including locking myself out of my site a hundred times. I’m sure it’s a simple fix if someone can help me and give me directions?????? THX Sharon

    Hmmmm…interesting it’s doing that. WordPress must have changed something because the code that I used for that is from the Twenty Twelve theme. The code is found in the /includes/comment-form.php file and looks like this:

    printf( '%1$s %2$s',
    					get_comment_author_link(),
    					// If current post author is also comment author, make it known visually.
    					( $comment->user_id === $post->post_author ) ? '' : ''
    				);

    The part that does the printed label (Post author) is in that last line.

    If you are using a child theme, you can copy the comment-form.php and upload it to your child theme into the “includes” folder there (create one if not there), then either remove that batch of code or re-label Post author as Comment Author.

    I made a note to take this out because it apparently is not working anymore by WordPress…perhaps changes happened in version 3.8

    NOTE: Actually, you can take that out of the parent theme because I will do an update for Celestial Reloaded.

    Deleting also deletes their names, is it possible to just delete POST AUTHOR words? THX
