It worked! (Using the PHP option) BUT! It left the little calendar icon and the separator line. I'll live with that.

It's good that you can choose what you want to hide and with what technique.

I was nervous in installing this plugin based on the other user reviews and the support forums... it seemed that installing this was a mixed bag as far as if it would work or not. However, after biting the bullet and installing it I was very pleased to find that it functioned exactly as expected and removed the listed "author" from all links to my website! (I used the "Hide By PHP" option in the plugin.) The only thing I wish this plugin could do differently is remove the author only from specific Post Types and not others (that way I could hide the author from all "page" Post Types but not from "post" post types).

First the author icon was not hidden, but after switching to css method, it works fine. Simple and easy. I like it.

Neither the CSS nor the PHP function did anything at all to hide meta data. Uninstalled.
