how can you remove/hide your name from author archive page?

  1. for security and privacy reasons, I would like some information if this is possible to do as these personal details seem to appear on Google?

    Thank you very much for your help.

  2. Is this the blog you mean?
    http://shallitellthemaboutislam.wordpress.com/

    Do you have a Google plus account?

  3. Do you mean that your full name appears as author instead of your wordpress.com username? That's most probably because you connected your Google+ profile to your blog. If you do that your full name as it's registered on your Google+ profile will appear as author on your posts. To have it display your username again you'll have to disconnect your Google+ profile at Settings ->Sharing in your dashboard.

    Note that this will also disconnect publicize from Google+ if you had that set up. You can reconnect publicize without the blog displaying your real name, but don't reconnect your Google+ profile directly below publicize.

    P.S. I'm guessing that this is the problem, as you don't provide a URL for your blog so there's no way to see what you are talking about.

  4. There is no author displayed on the theme of the blog I linked to http://shallitellthemaboutislam.wordpress.com/author/

  5. Hi,

    Thanks very much for the help...the full name is appearing for the blog although this is not the blog in question.
    the blog in question is owned by someone else which I'm trying to assist on?

    The blog is not linked to a Googleplus account (as far as I'm aware) but only a yahoo email account.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    ps. timethief, are you able to assist privately at all? thank you very much.

  6. the blog in question is owned by someone else which I'm trying to assist on?

    Provided you are referring to a blog hosted by WordPress.COM please provide the URL for the exact blog in question in the form of an active link starting with http://

    timethief, are you able to assist privately at all? thank you very much.

    No.I barely have time to blog, answer questions here, run my business and do contracted work, so private support is out of the question.
