Removing Author Module from all blog posts

Hello! I'm not a developer. I'm just trying to build my website and I'm using the free version and the Foodie theme. I would like to know how to remove the "author" module from appearing in the sidebar for every blog post. I would rather my face and bio not be over to the side of every blog post. How do I remove that module?

Removing Author Module from all blog posts

Hello- thank you for this info! So the foodie theme doesn't allow me to
make changes in the Design Manager and says I have to create a child theme.
So I did that. But I'm still not sure what CSS needs to be put in the Child
theme to remove the global "author" section for all blog posts.

This is the html that needs to be removed and I can't delete it out of here.Screenshot (5).png

You would need to clone the blog-post.html to your child theme too to remove this. 

Although, a super quick (and kinda janky) fix for this would be to just add 

.blog-post__about { display: none} to your child css file!

I added .blog-post__about { display: none} to the child css file and pressed the orange apply the changes button. But when I went to view my blog posts, the author/about section is still there. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong!

Are you using the child theme on your pages? 

If you add the display none after the comments in that stylesheet (after the greyed text) does it affect this?

It didn't do anything, althought I applied the changes. I believe I'm in the child theme. I attached another picture for you to see.Screenshot (10).png

Thanks @VC4 yep it looks like you're within the child theme in the design manager, have you selected the child theme as the active theme on your pages though? They may still be using the parent theme.

Hey @VC4 you'll need to know a small bit of HTML, or at least how to identify areas of HTML to achieve this. You'd need to access your blog post template through Marketing > Design tools and find your blog post template. In here you'd need to access the HTML of your blog post template, find the author section and remove it from the code. 

Unfotunately there's no way to do this within the UI at the moment!
