removing comments from the Author Avatar Mode

Recommended Posts

Configuring the full width post metabar with the shortcodes works fine when I want to strip out comments but I'd prefer to use the Author Avatar Mode. However, I can't see how to suppress comments - what's the trick here?

Hi nfp1900 - I think you may have brought a bug to our attention. I've just tested it and it does appear the custom meta is not applying when in Author Avatar. I'll let the developers know right away. In the meantime, you can hide the comments via CSS as follows:


.article-wrap .author-tag .tag-comments {display: none;}

Have you searched the forums yet or checked out the DMS user docs?

1.1 has new 'action' example:


add_action( 'pl_get_author_tag', function() { echo '<p>[post_date]</p>'; } );

Has this issue been fixed? I'm trying to use Author Avatar Mode in the base DMS theme and nothing seems to change what's appearing in the meta information. It keeps showing the full meta information (author, date, category, comments).

The Meta info in the PostLoop options is for the Metabar mode, if you want to customize the Avatar mode, you will want to use the code Simon provided above and add the shortcodes.

Please search our forums, before posting!

Hi Danny


1) Where is the code that Simon provided added exactly?


2) How would I make the Meta Info appear like it does on the Page Lines Blog:




where the author avatar and lets say comments are on the left of the featured image and the date & post category is below the featured image but  before the text excerpt?

i dont recommend using the action unless you are familiar with the concept and have reading around this

The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

      Hi everyone,
      Flywheel have reported errors on my clients site 'www.racewaredirect.co.uk' and it's not loading. Can someone please provide some information on how to fix this? The site has never experienced these issues before.

      Hi there,
      I've got an issue with 3 websites built with DMS since I migrated them from http to https that I need help with please.
      When any changes are made - e.g. new posts added or existing posts amended - certain sections of the live site seem to break e.g. image headers hang and don't load (b/g on canvas section), sliders hang and don't load (Revslider), flipper section doesn't load.
      Logging in and then clicking 'Edit the site using DMS' seems to fix the problem. Often if I try to open up another browser window to edit the site / re publish I'm unable to as the page wont load / hangs while trying to load.
      Any ideas how to fix this? On a couple of the sites I've installed a caching plugin as I thought it might be a loading speed issue but it's still happening.
      Website URL's can be provided privately.
      Many thanks in advance.

      I found this topic
      which talks about a similar issue I am having, but a little different. Hope someone can help me out.
      Best way to see the problem is to view http://cassclayton.com/ on Safari (Mac) compared to Firefox or Chrome. You will see the banner just under the fixed menubar has a gap between the menubar and top of the banner. Looking at Inspector, I found:
      <div class="fixed-top-pusher" style="height: 62px;"></div>
      <script> jQuery('.fixed-top-pusher').height( jQuery('.pl-fixed-top').height() ) </script>
      and indeed it seems the jquery is not always working consistently. For instance, if you simply refresh the page in Safari, it will loose the gap and all looks fine, so is it a browser cache issue that is interacting with the jquery? I do have W3 Total Cache installed. There must be a way to tell the code to make sure jquery is up and running and available to do it's majic?
      And perhaps there is just a better way to do this banner? Originally I tried several DMS sections and used the banner image as background, etc... Kept running into problems with resizing and the left/right parts of the image were getting chopped off. It is important the whole image show, so currently I just use a NextBox section with this code:
      <img src="[pl_site_url]/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/CassClayton-blues-tribute-banner.jpg" width="100%" />
      and it looks the way it should. Is there a better way to place a banner graphic under a fixed navbar and make sure the whole banner graphic displays regardless of screensize?

      I desperately need to deactivate the responsive function on mobile for reasons. It looks so messy with the responsive look on mobile and not navigating or informative at all as it is. 
      I searched for solutions online and tries some of those that I found but nothing worked out. Also I found a previous post on this forum says that this theme pagelines DMS is not meant to be build to deactivate the responsive function... 
      Also tried with widget such as WPtouch to edit the mobile look a little more informative but as I am using "single page" theme on pagelines, the frontpage(main page) never appears on those app.
      Seems like not compatible?
      If there is no way to deactivate responsive function or I'll have to recreate another page just dedicated for a mobile page? or change the theme completely and build a page from scratch?
      I have been searching for this for two days already...
      Could anyone wise and kind out there, please help me?
