    Apologies for the re-post. It was closed out without assistance.

    Trying to remove the word “by” before the byline in the smaller mobile responsive versions. I have tried reducing the font to 0%, but it still leaves an awkward space. How can I remove the space itself so that it’s a single, evenly spaced line (date, category, and tags)?

    Also, in the smallest mobile responsive version, my page title floats left. I’ve been able to center the menu button, but I just can’t get the title to center.


    Hi! Since I am the only author of my blog, I really don’t need to post authorship credit on every single post.

    I was able to remove it from the full-sized entries using:

    .entry-meta .byline {
    display: none;}

    However, I can’t quite figure out how to erase the word “by” that comes in front of the byline in the lower width responsive versions. I can only remove my user name with the following code.

    .entry-meta .byline a {
    display: none;}

    Right now I can hide it by adding font-size: 0%, but it leaves a bit of a space. How can I get rid of the word “by”?

    Thanks a lot.

    Hi Anthony!

    I think we had already answered a very similar question recently, but I couldn’t find it in your support history, so I’m not sure if that was you.

    Anyway, I checked your site and it seems you managed to hide it.

    Also just a heads-up that since your site has a Premium plan, you’re entitled to live-chat and email support, accessible here:

    You’re welcome to still post in these forums, but those other support avenues may be faster, and you’ll always get a staff reply.

    I’ll close this one for now. Feel free to contact us again if you still need help!
