Removing Author from your WordPress Post

While you probably don’t mind the readers of your blog having your contact information, having your email at the top of each post invites spam to your inbox in a big way.  To remove this field from your posts try this css in your style.css file for your chosen template.  I would recommend doing this in a child template so that it doesn’t get wiped by an update, however, it is simple enough to re-do in the case that you don’t use one.

Simply add this to your style.css:

.entry-meta .meta-sep, .entry-meta .author { display: none; }

This is the most simple way of doing this that I am aware of as you do not have to modify any php files.
