Hi – we are three contributing authors to our blog and I would like each post to be identified with the author, so friends, family etc know who wrote that entry. I cannot find how to do it. Can someone please let me know how to set that up?
What shows in the metadata (date, categories, tags, author) is different from theme to theme. Some show the author and some do not. Pilcrow does not and to add it would require hacking the theme PHP script files, and we cannot do that here at wordpress.com. For Pilcrow, I suggest having each author put a “byline” at the top of their post saying, “By Authorname” or something like that.
You can also add the authors widget to the sidebar and then when someone clicks on one of the authors, they will get a listing of only the posts by that author.
Thanks for the info on Pilcrow. I will review the list of themes that do allow that feature. When I find one, am I able to ‘test’ the new theme prior to making it live so that I can make sure I like it? Thanks so much for your super advice!
