Add author name/byline to posts?

  1. I am using the Pressrow theme with custom CSS. We have multiple authors. Is there a way to customize the CSS so that "By [author name]" appears in each post, below the headline, in normal fashion? Or is this just something that can only be changed at the theme level?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is copyrightandtechnology.com.

  2. You can either:
    - change it at the theme level (which, with no disrespect to Pressrow, is what I'd go for)
    - have authors manually put their names in posts

  3. Or use author names as categories or tags.

  4. Andrew: thanks, how would I change it at the theme level? Is this something I could do myself with the the basic (non-hosted) version of WordPress? I thought I was stuck with the provided themes and can't customize them?

    Please post the URL for the blog to which you are referring starting with http://

  6. I mean that you could change to a different theme. You are right that we are restricted to the themes provided, and that we customization is limited, even with the paid CSS upgrade.

  7. Here's a list of the themes that do and do not display author's names. http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/category/authors/

  8. Following the link, it's interesting that there are 3 themes that allow you to configure whether author name is displayed, and that all of them are relatively new to wp.com. Looks like a trend toward customizable themes...

  9. I mean the link provided by tt (to Panos' blog).
