I replaced the link “the_author_posts_link();” with “the_author();” which in effect removes the link but still display’s the author’s name. This is fine I suppose. The user will look under the author towards the title and just click on the title instead.
Thank you for the help.
I’ll look into the child theme and probably use it the next time I develop a site. I know it’s the way to go but I haven’t fully grasped the idea behind it. Off topic though. Thanks again!
