How to Hide the Author in WordPress

Table of Contents

If you use WordPress, you may want to hide the author of your blog posts, especially if you are running a multi-author website. This can be helpful for preserving anonymity and protecting yourself from potential liability. Luckily, there is an easy way to hide the author in WordPress without any coding knowledge. Let’s take a look at how it works.

The Basics of Hiding Your Author on WordPress

WordPress makes it relatively simple to hide the author of a post or page. First, you will need to log into your WordPress dashboard and navigate to Settings > Reading. In this section, scroll down until you find the “For each article in feed, show” option and select “Summary” instead of “Full Text”. This will prevent your readers from seeing who authored a post when they click through from your RSS feed.

Another option for hiding authors is by using plugins like WP Hide Post or Authors Widget Pro. These plugins allow you to hide posts from specific authors from appearing on your website while still allowing them to write content for it. Additionally, some themes have built-in options that let you disable author information from appearing in posts as well.

Finally, if you don’t want any of the above options, you can always manually edit each post and delete the author name before publishing it. This might be time consuming but it’s also a sure-fire way to make sure that no one knows who wrote each post on your site.


Hiding the author of a post or page on WordPress can be done with relative ease if you know where to look and which steps to take. By tweaking settings within your dashboard or using plugins like WP Hide Post or Authors Widget Pro, anyone can quickly and easily make sure their authorship remains anonymous! So whether you’re trying to protect yourself legally or just want more control over who sees what content on your website, hiding authorship is an option worth exploring!
