    I was just wondering if there is a way to display Author names? It would be good if they could be up the top near the date?

    here is my site and a review I wrote, there is no writter by.... Which I would like
    http://www.residententertainment.com/gangster-squad-2013-review/

    I just can't figure out how to get my name on there, as I do have a few people that write we would like to put our names in there for who wrote everything.

    thank you for your help

    GamePress does not support authors at the moment, but I plan on adding it in the future (no timeframe yet, but it's a priority).

    okay thank you, it would be very good to have it there maybe somewhere where the date is under the heading where you view the post.

    It's a very good theme, it would be good to have

    thanks, the first example looks sort of complicated for me to do.

    How did you set it up the way you have though? That's what I would like in my site, it's nicer and simpler

    The simplest way to do it for now is add the syntax below where you want it displayed on the following pages.

    I added the following code to the pages listed below:

    content-bigthumb, content-single, content-smallthumb, reviews-archive, reviews-single, video-archive, video-single

    <?php echo __( ' By ', 'gamepresss'), __( ''. get_the_author() .''); ?> |

    I notice that the archive page does not show Game Reviews and Video Review and only the main post reviews. The only other thing i'm missing is a author's page at the moment.

    I managed to put in the author names but if you go onto one of my posts, at the bottom the name is way out of place, any help with that?

    Review your PHP code on those pages to see why By Marshall Burrows | is showing up under tagged area. The first author name looks good.

    thanks guys, finally got around to do it, ended up using the code that PB4L gave out thanks for that!!

    <?php echo __( ' By ', 'gamepresss'), __( ''. get_the_author() .''); ?> |

    but i don't know how it could be linked like on the website http://www.thenerdcabinet.com/?p=4298 you can click on the author on that one and view all the posts. I think that was a good idea to have if i wanted and had multiple authors to

    but anyway it appears as so on my site for now http://www.residententertainment.com/

    I really like it now that it has author's in there

    Hey Bryan,

    The reason I didn't link to a author page is due to the fact that the author page does not see custom post types. Your Game Reviews and Videos currently won't show up on the page. The only reviews that show up are from the Page Post "News" section. I checked thenerdcabinet.com and see the same issue.

    I'm waiting for Alex to provide a update to this.

    okay yeah, that makes sense I guess it's better for now without having to click on them if that's the case.

    I'm happy with how it is, it's much better now on my site with them there

    I'd like to second the need for this. Seeing an author and getting a link to their profile would be great.
