    I read in the forum how to change index.php to include the author name stamp and changed code to read :

    <by <?php the_author() ?>></small>

    But the author name is still not appearing. How do I get the author name to appear with the post?

    Thanks in advance

    I think using the < is what's breaking it. When looking at your page source it's outputting <by Lauren>, try changing it to ( ) and see if that works.

    If so, we can find a solution to using the < > if you really want them.
