I have just started several WordPress sites, and the problem I am describing happens only on one. It is not a Theme issue, because switching themes doesn't resolve it.
The problem is this: When I create a new page, my name/identy does not show up as an option in the Author dropdown menu. So the "author" defaults to the first one in the alphabetical list. I cannot change this. I cannot "author" a page as myself.
Please help! Where in WordPress is the info for the authors for Pages buried??
By the way, my name shows up just fine when I write a simple new post -- just not when I create a page.
