How to Show/Hide Elements

Startup Blog displays many optional elements throughout its design. The following elements display by default, but can be hidden from your site:

  • Tagline
  • Post byline - date
  • Post byline - author
  • Post author avatars
  • Author box after posts
  • Categories after posts
  • Tags after posts

In addition, you can also choose to display the sidebar before the main content on mobile devices, or hide it entirely (on mobile).

To hide any of these elements, follow these steps

  1. Visit the Customizer (Appearance → Customize)
  2. Click on the Show/Hide Elements section
  3. Locate the option(s) for the element(s) you want to hide, and switch to "No"
  4. Click the Save & Publish button at the top of the screen

Any elements you chose to hide will no longer display on your site.
