    I am having spiders taking my blog post and posting them under a different name. I would like the rss feed to have my byline at the beginning of the blog post. Something like "Written by...."

    How do i change the feed to display this?

    It doesn't even have to generate the author. I can put that in manually if I need.

    Author is already in the RSS feed in the <dc:creator> element. The folks using their own name are most likely deliberately ignoring or replacing it.

    There are a lot of WordPress plugins out there that attempt to tackle the "anti copy" stuff. Some will simply add an author mention to the beginning or end of the post itself, which may prevent it from being overwritten by the copier. Have a search through http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ and let us know what you go with.
