Looking to get rid of the “Posted by” (author) on “Date” in “category” info? Here’s how.

These allow you to hide some of the meta data from posts and archives.

These allow you to hide some of the meta data from posts and archives.

In most recent versions of Canvas it’s called Filters. In that screen, you’ll see a few boxes and if you look closely, you’ll see some busy code. If you look closely, you’ll recognize elements that show the author, date, category etc. for a post. You can choose to show some of that, all of it, or just remove it all.

Here’s the code you’ll be dealing with.

<span class="small">By</span> [post_author_posts_link] <span class="small">on</span> [post_date] <span class="small">in</span> [post_categories before=""] [post_comments]

So for example, if you only wanted to show “By (author) on date” you would just leave this code in there:

<span class="small">By</span> [post_author_posts_link] <span class="small">on</span> [post_date]

I suppose you could get fancy and put in other text and even other code. Play around, you probably won’t break anything. Right?

Now the post no longer has an author, date, or category listed under the title.
