(How) Are different contributors/authors given credit in blogs?

  1. I am just new to WordPress and am in the process of trying out the service for our group of writers. None of the other writers have accepted the invitation yet, so only my contributions are in the blog so far.

    One of the key requirements for our group blog is that there be some way to differentiate the work of each of the contributors. I would assume that this would be a standard requirement, but don't know if others care about that sort of thing.

    Are there examples of other group blogs. I would really like to see how others are handling this with WordPress and how it shows up in their blogs.

    Thanks so much,
    Teo

  2. (1) Choose a theme that displays "authors".
    (2) Or if the theme does not do this then create a category Called "Authors" as a "parent" category and then create sub-categores "children" for each author's name under the parent Category "Authors".
    (3) Or have each author include a byline in the posts they create.

    Note that there are theme reviews here http://engtech.wordpress.com/tools/wordpress/wordpress-theme-reviews/

  3. How do I figure out which themes display authors?

  4. Take a look at engtech's site. I think that's one of the features that he reviews.
