    What template do I need to use in order to display the username of the author next to the time and date of the post?

    Thanks!

    The WordPress Default 1.6 index.php has the author 'commented out'.

    Just edit the wp-content/themes/default/index.php file and take out the <!-- and the --> before and after the_author tag. It is on about line 11 in that file.

    <!-- by <?php the_author() ?> -->

    should be
    by <?php the_author() ?>
