Remove the author's name from blog posts

Note

Debut and Minimal have the option to remove the author in the theme settings. Visit your Customize theme page and uncheck the option to show the author in both the Blog and Article sections.

The steps for this tutorial differ depending on whether you are using a sectioned or a non-sectioned theme. To figure out whether your theme supports sections, go to the theme's Edit HTML/CSS page. If there are files in the Sections directory, you are using a sectioned theme. Non-sectioned themes were released before October 2016, and do not have files in the Sections directory.

If you are using a sectioned theme, then click the Sectioned themes button and follow the instructions. If you are using non-sectioned theme, then click the Non-sectioned themes button and follow the instructions.

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, click the ... button, and then click Edit HTML/CSS.

  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 }}
    
    

    For Simple and Supply, the author and date share the same liquid tag. To remove both, use ctrl + F on a PC or command + F on a Mac to locate this Liquid tag and delete it:

    
    {{ '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 }}
    
    
  4. Click Save.

  5. In the Sections folder, click article-template.liquid. For Boundless, in the Templates folder, click article.liquid.

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

    
    {{ article.author }}
    
    

    For Simple and Supply, the article author and article date share the same liquid tag. To remove both, use ctrl + F on a PC or command + F on a Mac to locate this Liquid tag and delete it:

    
    {{ '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 }}
    
    
  7. Click Save.
