Entry Meta Style

By default, the entry meta displays like below:

One of the popular requests we receive is to add author gravatar and style the entry meta like below:

To apply this style to your site, first you need to add this PHP snippet:

add_filter( 'generate_post_author', '__return_false' );
add_filter( 'generate_show_comments', '__return_false' );
add_filter( 'generate_post_date_output', 'tu_fancy_byline' );
function tu_fancy_byline( $date ) {
	printf( ' <span class="byline">%1$s</span>',
		sprintf( '<span class="author vcard" itemtype="http://schema.org/Person" itemscope="itemscope" itemprop="author">%4$s<a href="%1$s" title="%2$s" rel="author"><span class="author-name" itemprop="name">%3$s</span></a></span>',
			esc_url( get_author_posts_url( get_the_author_meta( 'ID' ) ) ),
			esc_attr( sprintf( __( 'View all posts by %s', 'generatepress' ), get_the_author() ) ),
			esc_html( get_the_author() ),
			get_avatar( get_the_author_meta( 'ID' ) )
		)
	);

	if ( ! is_single() && ! post_password_required() && ( comments_open() || get_comments_number() ) ) {
		echo '<span class="comments-link">';
			comments_popup_link( __( 'Leave a comment', 'generatepress' ), __( '1 Comment', 'generatepress' ), __( '% Comments', 'generatepress' ) );
		echo '</span>';
	}

	echo $date;
}

Then style it with this CSS snippet:

.byline img {
    width: 25px;
    height: 25px;
    border-radius: 50%;
    position: relative;
    vertical-align: middle;
    margin: 0 10px 0 0;
}

.byline,
.comments-link,
.posted-on {
	display: inline-block;
}

.comments-link,
.posted-on {
	border-left: 1px solid #ddd;
	padding-left: 10px;
	margin-left: 10px;
}

.comments-link:before {
	display: none;
}

h2.entry-title {
    margin-bottom: 20px;
}
