Hiding Author field in News

  • Hiding Author field in News
  • Hello all,

    I am new to Sitefinity and very happy to find this resource!

     We are using Sitefinity 6.3. I am posting press releases using the News content item and would like to know if there is a way to hide the Author field and possibly date, from the posted content. Right now it looks a little silly repeating the author and the date. Is there a way to hid or remove? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

  • Hello Michael,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can easily remove author and publication date of news items by editing the template for News widget or applying a new widget template.

    The code that needs to be removed from the news widget template is:

    <asp:Literal Text="<%$ Resources:Labels, By %>" runat="server" />
    <sf:PersonProfileView runat="server" /> | <sf:FieldListView ID="PublicationDate" runat="server" Format="PublicationDate.ToLocal():MMM dd, yyyy" />

    In order to edit or create a widget template, you need to navigate to Design > Widget Templates and open the template you wish to edit. Then find the code above and remove it.

    Here is a link to Sitefinity documentation for creating and editing widget templates.

    Hope this is useful for you.
