Add author name/byline to posts?

    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.

    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

    Or use author names as categories or tags.

    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?

    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.

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

    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…
