Create a ‘Child theme’ to prevent breaking after site update.

Sorry, I can’t tell exactly that. Please check with Theme Developer.

@saurav_556 It’s very simple. You don’t need to edit any code. Just install a plugin called Author meta remover and it will do the work. Hope it helps.

If you don’t wan’t to remove the plugin that i mentioned above, then opt for this method.
Just go to single.php and find the code that shows author meta, and add the div section if its not already there and give it a class or id.

Then add the following css {

.div-class {visibility:hidden;}

or

.div-class{display:none;}

Hope it helps :slight_smile:

Let me give the plugin a try, Messing up with theme needs child theme first. Can’t go that technical.
I am good at writing stuff and promoting. Technical is my :-1:
