Disabling author name on WPTouch / WordPress

24 Jul

WPTouch enables you to disable/hide the author name in the main index page through the options, but how do you do so on the post pages?

In order to disable the author name from showing up on post pages, you just need to go to your WordPress site admin, and then Plugins -> WPTouch -> and then disable “Show Author Name”.

But in order to disable the author name from showing up in posts, you need to do the following:

  1. Open up FTP/shell, and navigate to your WordPress root
  2. Go to /wp-content/plugins/wptouch/themes/default/ under the root directory
  3. Open up single.php
  4. You will find a line with this function in it: the_author()
  5. Delete the function call, or put /* */ comments around the function call to disable it.

Hey presto, author names will be hidden on your WPTouch posts pages!
