Hide date and author in blog

  • Hide date and author in blog
  • Hi,

    I am new to Sitefinity but I've used other CMS before. Can someone give me a a step-by-step on how I would hide the author and dates on blog posts? (On the blog list and on the actual blog posts)

  • Hello Nam,

    For your convenience I have decided to record a video (video).

    In general you have an access to List / Detail templates and you can modify them as you need. Also in any moment you can restore the default one.

    I hope this helps.

  • That was very useful. It did the trick. Thank you very much. I am getting more confident about the Sitefinity CMS.

  • Hello,

    I have the blog author hidden but when it prints, the author shows up. How do I turn this off?

    Thank you,

    Thanks Vassil for the reply! Here is the live blog post. The author does not show: www.badgley.com/.../the-risky-business-of-concentrated-equity

    Attached is an image of what it looks like when you print the webpage on paper. The author shows like this:

    "The risky business of concentrated equity

    by Chris Rios | Jul 13, 2016"


    This company targets older people who like to print off the blog posts and read them on paper. I know that is silly but that is what they do. We do not want the author to show when they print the web page.

    Thank you!

  • Hi Tess. I don't get you point. What you mean when it prints? Can you please provide more information or screenshots
  • The problem is that you hide author block through CSS in badgley-desktop.css line 382

    And this css have  media="only screen" that means when user will try to print it, it will not work. That the reason why your printed page looks terrible.

    You can find more information here: http://www.w3schools.com/css/css3_mediaqueries.asp

    You have two solutions. 

    1) Use for this css media =only screen and print

    2) Or create separate css with media="only print" for printers

  • Great! Thank you very much.
