    the “posted by” line says just that, nothing more. have i missed something? or is there a problem? either way, how do i get it to say who posted it?

    Go into Dashboard -> Users -> Your Profile and make sure you’ve filled it out completly. Also make sure you’ve choosen something under the “Display name publicly as” drop down.

    Hope this helps,

    I’m having this same problem. We’ve got three administrators on the blog we just set up yesterday, and when we post, it’s not saying which one of us it was. I tried filling it out completely — even using fake info for the AIM number (I don’t use AIM), but it still doesn’t work.

    One difference: we don’t even get a “Posted by” line. Our theme is Andreas09. Would that make a difference?

    EDIT:
    I found what was wrong in my case. It was the theme. I have to say I’m surprised that the theme affects the information displayed.

    Um, how else would get displayed? :)

    It’s up to the theme designers really. Some designers don’t like seeing their name displayed on every post like others don’t want the time displayed on when the post is published.
