    I have multiple authors (right now all in “editor” role) contributing to the blog. Is there a way for each individual author to have their own signature automatically? How does the public know who wrote the post? Do we have to add a “signature” at the end of each post?

    Thanks for your help,
    Murphy

    The blog I need help with is thisblogdoesnthaveanameyet.wordpress.com.

    Hi Murphy. That depends on the theme:

    As you can see, the theme you selected (Depo Masthead) does not display the author’s name, so either switch to a theme that does, or ask each author to include their name manually.

    You can also create a Category for “Authors” and a sub-category for each author’s name. They can then assign that sub-category to all the posts they publish. There are some tips in this post Multi-Author WordPress.com Blogs that may be useful to you.
