[resolved] Author name not displaying (7 posts)

    I've multisite blog but currently have only one Editor. The theme is not displaying author name anywhere. I read that there is some check for single author and based on it displays the author name. I added a dummy author (with no posts) but of no use. I'm n00b here, and unable to understand how to get the author name displayed.

    I think it should be an option to allow user to control whether to display author name or not in case of single user. (Apologies if i've missed seeing this option). Please help me in showing author name at end of post.

    Put this in child theme stylesheet or any of the Custom CSS plugin (Jetpack has one).

    .single-author .entry-meta .author { display: inline; }

    In addition, if you also fill in the author description (for the real author), you should get author info box displayed down below the post too.

    I'll try this first before starting a whole new thread.

    I had this same trouble but sorted it out on my own.

    Now when a visitor clicks the author's name, they get the vcard blurb, gravitar, and a long list of WHOLE posts.

    Is there anyway, short of putting custom content-x.php files in a child theme with is_home() added to the is_search() conditional statement, to have the author page display a list of EXCERPTS of posts?

    (Maybe you guys "buried" {display:hidden;} this link because you were still sorting out how to handle this?)

    Ugh... sorry. Many forums I visit freakout if you don't continue old threads that are the same as what you are asking about.
