Remove the author's name

To remove the blog author's name, you will need to edit the Liquid in your blog.liquid and your article-template.liquid templates. If you are using Boundless, you will need to edit the Liquid in your blog.liquid and article.liquid templates.

  1. Find the theme you want to edit, and then click Actions > Edit code.

  2. In the Templates folder, click blog.liquid.

  3. Use ctrl + F on a PC or command + F on a Mac to locate this Liquid tag and delete it:

    {{ article.author }}

    {{ 'blogs.article.author_on_date_html' | t: author: author, date: date }}

    If you want to keep only the date, then replace the code above with:

    {{ date }}
