For academic purpose, I am using the whiley-article document class that I found in [overleaf].

My problem is that I want to remove the "funding information" output, which is generated by the \fundinginfo{} command. I tried to comment it, but it does not work. I also tried to comment its definition on the whiley-article.cls, but it does not work either.

Here is the wiley-article.cls file

Any suggestions?

PS: I forgot to mention that I compile my document by using the pdflatex engine

  • First, why do you want to deactivate it? – user156344 Apr 18 at 16:06
  • Please don't make links pointing to external sites. Many users here don't have an Overleaf account, so they can't see Overleaf stuff. I do have an account, but I can't have access to your page. – user156344 Apr 18 at 16:08
  • since my research does not have any funding, i want to remove the "funding information" output – Yorgos Apr 18 at 16:11
  • I see "Original Article". Do you want to remove it? – user156344 Apr 18 at 16:31
  • no, just the "funding information" part – Yorgos Apr 18 at 16:33

To remove the "funding information" output you need to patch the used class. You can do this with package etoolbox and command \patchcmd like this:

\makeatletter % <=======================================================
\patchcmd{\wiley@affilmetadata}%
  {\textbf{Funding information}\\
   \@fundinginfo\par
  }%
  {\par}%
  {}% success
  {}%failure
\makeatother % <========================================================

Here I simply deleted the code for printing the bold text Funding information and the content of command \fundinginfo{test} I did not comment in the following complete MWE:

\usepackage{etoolbox} % <===============================================

It results in the following first pdf page:
