    I want the author's name to show up under the post title on the featured page and inside the post itself. Easy way to do this?

    Hi there! Yes, you can use CSS in a child theme or a CSS plugin (like Jetpack) to do this. I recommend using Firebug for CSS work--makes it much easier.

    With this solution, the theme will display the date AND the author under the title -- you'd need to do more complex code editing to remove the duplicate date (I may fix that in a future release), but you can add the following to your child theme or CSS plugin to show the author:

    .media-posted-on,
    .byline {
      display: block;
    }

    Where exactly would I post this code?

    In your child theme's style.css or custom CSS plugin. See the links in my comment above for more info.
