    When I use the plugin, instead of the page displaying the authors name, it displays all the code that should be on the page, such as this: <a href="http://newsroom.seattletimes.com/picturethis/byline/bettina-hansen/" rel="tag">Bettina Hansen</a>

    Here is an example: http://newsroom.seattletimes.com/picturethis/2013/12/06/a-breath-of-cold-air/

    Any idea how a help it perform correctly?

    Thanks!

    This happens when the theme uses some custom code for displaying authors/author links.

    If you can find this chunk of code in your theme, you will have to replace it with the WP function the_author()

    Hope this sheds some light.

    Thank you! That took care of it.

    Apologies for an unrelated question on the same thread, but is their an option to insert the word "and" appropriately into the display? Or are you planning on building that in?

    Again, thanks so much. Both for your work on the plugin and for being responsive in this thread.

    Check out Dan's solution for inserting "and" in a series of names.
