Additional CSS will not apply

    I am a noob to wordpress and a big dum-dum when it comes to IT. I am having trouble using Additional CSS.

    I first wanted to hide the date from all blog posts and found this online which worked:

    span.posted-on {
        display: none;

    Now I am trying to hide the author avatar and tags fromt he top of the post. I found these, but they will not apply and I don’t understand why:

    .post .post-tags {display: none;}
    .content-post .post-author { display:none; }

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    The blog I need help with is



    Hi there, is a WordPress.ORG software install hosted by CyrusOne
    Name Servers:

    You are posting to the wrong support forum. This is WordPress.COM support and that site is not on our servers.

    To be clear we do not provide support for local installs of WordPress.ORG software, or for WordPress.ORG software installs on paid hosting, linked to WordPress.COM accounts with the Jetpack plugin so they display on the My Sites WordPress.COM account page.

    WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG are completely separate and have different username accounts, logins, features, run different versions of some themes with the same names, and have separate support documentation and separate support forums. Read the differences here

    The wordpress.ORG support forum is at The wordpress.ORG login link is here If you do not have an account yet then click Create an account and if you have lost an account password click Lost password? support docs are at
    See also for app support.
