Name vs. nickname

  1. Howdy. I have a multiple-user blog. My issue is this: the author page created by wordpress for my posts (http://gygesring.wordpress.com/author/hurrikaane/) is using my account name "hurrikaane", rather than the "nickname" under which I make my posts, which is "Magari." Is it possible to make it use my nickname? Thanks!

  2. Go to Dashboard -> Users -> Your Profile, and scroll down to the "Name" section and fill in the nickname box.

    Also, while you're there, fill in your wordpress.com address into the "website" box so it will link to your name.

  3. From looking at her blog, she has already done that.

    I don't think there is any way for the author page to show the nickname. It must be coded into the theme somehow.
