Disabling Authorship and Updated Times

Updated 3 days ago by Jake Peters

From our experience, customers love being able to see who updated an article and when. That being said, sometimes you might want to hide all that metadata away. Especially if you don't update your HelpDocs very often!

We don't offer a native way to hide authors, profile images and updated times, but you can do it with a small amount of CSS.

You'll need to paste all your CSS into the custom CSS box in Settings

Here's the CSS you'll need to disable all authorship:

/* Disable authorship */
          #article #body p.meta, 
          #category #articles p.card-text img, 
          #category #articles p.card-text .text-muted, 
          #home #categories #category p.card-text:last-of-type {
              display: none !important;

If you only want to disable authorship on certain pages, you can pick and choose the CSS selectors you want from the above.

These CSS selectors are likely to change in the future, and might have changed already. They may need adapting for your theme.
