    Hi, Andre,
    Can you please tell me how I can hide the author box on posts for Preferential. I’m using the Starbox plugin but the author box is repeating. Is this a function of your template or the Yoast SEO feature? If the latter, I will take care of it with the Yoast plugin.

    Thank you!

    Hi Judy…. if you are referring to the “Author: Judy Asman” below the post heading, you can, but requires a display: none; with CSS.

    dd.meta-author {display: none;}

    Hi, Andre,
    Thank you — actually, I’m referring to the author box below the post itself and above comments section. It has an author thumbnail and bio.

    No worries..thanks for the clarification…. the container you can then hide is an ID of author-info

    #author-info

    Do you have more than one author in the site? This is usually when that author info shows up.

    Ahh interesting. yes, I just added a new author. That would explain as I did not notice it before! Thank you again 🙂

    Hi Judy,

    I noticed you managed to remove the author line without any remnant gap from the meta data below the post and replace Published: by Last Modified. Please, would you help me do that?

    And for fonts, are you using a plugin or have you changed them manually?

    Hi, Zdenka,
    I apologize for delay. I just got back in from out of town. I used the Starbox plugin for authors. I didn’t have to change the fonts as it reads from my child theme style.css.
    Are you using Starbox? Do you have a link you can share?

    Hi Judy,

    thank you very much for your reply.
    No, I don’t mean Starbox plugin but rather the post footer info which is like this:
    Posted in:
    Tagged:
    Last Modified:

    This is different from the default Preferential footer info (tagged / posted in / author / published)
    I’d love to have the “Last modified” date instead of “Published” and leave out the author.

    I’m using the Preferential child theme so I can easily add any custum CSS there. However I’m not so skilled in coding. I’ll be very grateful for any help.

    Thanks Zdenka. I’m actually not using Preferential for this site but Preference — the older version of it. Maybe Andre can help you with this in the Preferential forum…I didn’t make any CSS adjustments to the section you are referring to. I hope this helps!!

    I’d love to have the “Last modified” date instead of “Published” and leave out the author.

    You will need to copy the content-single.php file into your child theme and then look for this:

    Then change it to this:

    On the line of code, make sure you change the “Published:” part to be “Modified”

    As for removing the author from the post footer area, normally I would say do this custom CSS:

    .meta-author {display: none;}

    Or, with the copied content-single.php file in your child theme, you can remove this batch of code:

    <?php printf( __( 'Articles by: %s', 'preferential' ), '' ); ?>

    Thank you very much André! That worked perfectly!
    (.meta-author {display: none;} removed the text but leaving an empty line)

    You may need to modify the content-single.php then to remove the

    I just removed all the code about the author, just as you advised above. So far it’s sufficient for my needs. Thank you very, very much!
