    You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for WordPress.com hosted blogs only. If you have a self-hosted WordPress blog you need to seek help at the WordPress.org forums, not here.

    If you don’t understand the difference, you may find this information helpful.

    I’m using the Light theme.

    My name shows up on my other blog but not this one.
    It doesn’t matter at the moment, but will if more people make posts.

    You can either switch to a theme that does display the authors (about half of them do) or add your nick manually in each post.

    Thanks for the details.

    ‘<?php the_author_nickname(); ?>’ and ‘<?php the_author(); ?>’ template tags would do but the you would have to purchase an upgrade

    @sourceforgenet and john,

    You CANNOT use PHP script, javascript, flash, iframes or template tags here (among others). They aren’t allowed due to security concerns.

    And that is regardless of whether you have an upgrade or not. There is no upgrade that will allow you to add any of the above, period.
