    How do I remove the footer area after a post that identifies the user making a post? My site is intended to have a limited number of administrators who can make posts. No need to identify.

    The site linked to your username https://svfriends.wordpress.com doesn’t exist. What is the URL of the site you refer to?

    an example of a post where the footer identifying me by user name and profile in a footer is as follows:
    https://svfriendstestblog.wordpress.com/2016/01/16/homeward-bound-welcome-kit/

    Very few themes have an author profile with a gravatar that displays below every post. The data is derived from here > Dashboard > Users > My Profile > About You (section) and anything you add there appears on your Gravatar profile page as well.

    Go to https://svfriendstestblog.wordpress.com/wp-admin/users.php?page=grofiles-editor and delete the content in “About you” and then click Update Profile.

    My site is intended to have a limited number of administrators who can make posts. No need to identify.

    The recommended limit for Admins is one and that’s with good reason. Aside from the blog’s actual owner, who registered it under their username account, no other user needs that degree of access at all. https://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/

    You cannot provide username accounts and logins to others here at wordpress.com. Here your official users have to register their own wordpress.com accounts and passwords.

    You can have either a public or a private WordPress.COM hosted blog and there is no limitation on the total number of contributors to any blog. If you’d like to invite others to publish posts or help approve comments on your blog, you can invite them to be a Contributor, Editor, or Author. Contributors cannot upload images. If you want users to receive updates each time you publish new content you can invite them to be a follower/viewer.

    To change blog visibility to Private go to > Settings > Reading scroll to Blog Visibility and choose option 3. See the guide here http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings

    Then see:

    https://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#adding-viewers-to-a-private-site

    The invitees will have to register a WordPress.COM username account which requires an email address only, but does not need to register a blog. That requirement is because the software has to be able to differentiate between hackers and official users and allow access only to those with username accounts and official roles on the blog.

    Username accounts are required but registering blogs under them is not required.

    If the person being invited to contribute to your blog does not already have one, he or she will have to register a WordPress.COM username account. Note that he or she does not need to register a blog. There is a just a username please option. The invitees who lack username accounts select the “username only” option here: https://signup.wordpress.com/signup/?user=1

    NOTE that as you have an account you would have to log out and clear your browser cache https://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clearing-your-browser-cache and cookies https://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clearing-wordpress-com-cookies to witness the process as the invitees without accounts would experience it.

    Upon receipt of the invitation, the invitee will need to click the “Accept Invitation” button in the invitation email. If the invitee is logged into their WordPress.com username account, he or she will be taken directly to your blog. If not, he or she will be taken to the log-in screen, where he or she can either log in, or can register a new WordPress.COM user account.

    Note that invitees who do create a new WordPress.com account at that point will still need to return to the invitation email and click the “Accept Invitation” button after doing so.

    Note that invitees who do create a new WordPress.com account at that point will still need to return to the invitation email and click the “Accept Invitation” button after doing so.

    Lastly, there is a built-in spammer prevention so send out only 10 invitations at one point in time and then wait and manage those before sending out 10 more.
