Removing byline from comments

  1. Is there a way to remove the byline completely from comments section?
    Is that setting specific to a theme?
    In a secure blog, where it is set for an individual to enter their name and email before submitting a comment, is there a way to ensure that the username does not appear in place of the name they entered?

  2. Please post the complete clickable URL for the blog in question starting with the http:// prefix so we can begin to help you.

  3. I have the same question. Can you post your answer here? thanks.

  4. If someone is logged in and visiting a private blog, then wordpress will automatically fill in the username, email address and website fields from the information in their profile. If they have set a "display" name in their profile, then that display name will show. If they have not set a "display" name in their profile, then it will default to their account main username. What ends up showing as a "name" on a comment from a logged in visitor is entirely dependent on what they have set in their own profile.
