Hide the Edit link from pages

I know the little “Edit” link that appears on pages and posts annoys people because it does to me too. So for everyone who wishes they can delete that edit link from the front of their site pages when viewing it, I have a theme option setting for you.


By default, most themes have this so that it allows the site owner to edit the page or post by clicking on this link directly from the front-end.

  1. Go to Appearance >> Customize >> Basic Settings
  2. Check the box next to Hide Edit Links
  3. Click Save & Publish
