With Influential, you can show or hide any of these elements by placing a checkmark or unchecking the boxes next to each setting. To do this, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to Appearance >> Customize >> Blog Options
  2. Look for each element and either place a check in each box to show it, or uncheck it to hide the element
  3. Click “Save & Publish

Show or Hide the Edit Link

By default, I have this disabled, otherwise you would see the “Edit” link on your posts and pages. If you are a website owner that likes to have the ability to click on this link and open that post or page in the editor to make instant changes, you can go into the customizer and turn this feature on.

For the full post, you can find the “Edit” link in the footer area of the post:

edit full post

For pages, you can find the “Edit” link at the bottom of the page content:
