I recently noticed on my site, that on each page, it shows a button to edit the article, but has no options below it and is an empty button. I would like to remove this on the front end since it does not apply and most likely I will not provide that option for anyone. The problem is that it appears for everyone with no usefulness, it would be nice to appear for someone who could use it. Please help me with how I can remove this button from appearing on each of my pages. I have added an image with the problem button, I also have not see this happen on other templates I have tried.

That triggers the built in Joomla edit/print options on posts. You can disable it under the specific menu items or in the Global Article Settings in the back end.
