Let’s find the path - blog.py

╰─$ python -c "import tinkerer;print(tinkerer.__file__)"                                 1 ↵
/home/user/.local/lib/python3.8/site-packages/tinkerer/__init__.py

/tinkerer/ext/blog.py

../../../_images/sphinx-author.png

Solution

Comment out the line author
or
Change author variable to writer in conf.py
