Hi all,

 

I have a blog on my shopify webpage. Right now it has my real name for each entry. I'd like to use my store name as the author for my blog entries. How can I change this?

If you will ever switch back and forth you will need to add a user with the name of your store under "accounts" in the admin. Once that account is active that user will show up as a potential author in the article edit page. You can go back and select that user as the author.

Alternately you can simply hard code this value in the article.liquid template and the blog.liquid template. The current value will be {{ article.author }}

HTH!

With the new themes maybe someone got problem to change the Author in a blog article. I did, so i got an own solution to fix this.

My advice can work for the Theme "Colors (Fluor)" but i guess could work for any new Shopify shop.

 

So, go to

>> Settings > Plan & Permissions > Add new  STAFF > Than Write the name of an GMAIL account (For exemple i changed for the occasion one Email account name in "The Universe".)

 

>> In the Name and Surname of new admin i just insert:

NAME: The

SURNAME: Universe

 

>> Apply

 

Than Shopify will send an verification email to that email adress > Confirm clicking the botton > Go back to the shopify BLOG Article > Choose the new AUTHOR (staff) name

 

Enjoy ;)

If you want to remove the Author, I believe that was answered here: https://community.shopify.com/c/Shopify-Design/Remove-Author-s-name-from-blog-posts/td-p/516011

(I'm about to try, however I use the "Supply" theme.)

 

1. Go to Online Store->Theme->Edit code
2. Sections->article-template.liquid->find article__author and remove or comment this span.

Let me know if you need help. 

 

See Page #2 for specifics in "Debut" theme: https://community.shopify.com/c/Shopify-Design/Remove-Author-s-name-from-blog-posts/td-p/516011/page...

 

Add this to the css and remove old one:

.article__author {    display: none !important;
}

I believe there are ways to edit the code to hardcode an author name, but you'll have to search further for that.
