I am managing a WP 3.0.4 site where every post has the profile of the author appended. Where is the setting to disable this?

There's no exact "setting" in the backend/Admin UI. You'll have to edit your template files (the php files that are in your theme folder). Search for something like <a href=""></a> where you got one (or more) of the php (wp native) function or variable:

  • the_author_posts_link();
  • $curauth->user_url;
  • get_the_author();
  • get_author_posts_url();
  • ... or something theme specific

Helpful is always a link to the download of your theme or some template code.

    It can also be added via hook, so functions.php is also worth checking.

  • Sorry for the delay in accepting! But I found the offending section and hacked it out after all. It was just the standard Twenty-Ten theme that ships with WP 3.
