Moving author by-line to top of posts

  1. Hello,

    Currently the author by-line is at the bottom of our blog posts, is there a way to move it to the top of the post (below the title)?

    Here is our most recent post:

    We are using the Bueno theme.


    The blog I need help with is

  2. To move the author by-line to the top of the post and below, insert the following into your custom CSS:

    .post-meta {
    position: absolute;
    top: 7.5em;

    You will also need to include the following code snippet to bring the content of the blog below the newly positioned author by-line:

    .entry {
    margin-top: 5.5em;

    Hope this provides you with your desired result! Let me know if there's any further help you need with this.

  3. The above moves categories up there also, which with position absolute can cause problems if you end up with enough categories to take things to a second line.

    If you want to move the author byline only up to the top, this will do it for you and you will not have the potential problem with the categories.

    .post-meta .author {
    position: absolute;
    top: 9em;
    border-left: none;
    .entry {
    margin-top: 4.5em;
  4. Thanks everyone! I will give this a try.

  5. You are welcome.

  6. @thesacredpath Thanks for correcting me! Hadn't thought about the problems the categories might cause.

  7. @siobhyb, the only reason I thought of it was that I did the same thing a while ago where they had some posts with enough categories to go to a second and third line.

    This is always a tag team thing here in the forums, and you've surprised me with a couple of your ingenious solutions. You will most surely be catching me with something too. :)
