How can visitor posts look like they didn’t come from me? (2 posts)

    To prevent spam, WP is set so I have to approve a post/comment before it is published. But after approving a visitor’s POST
    It appears to come from me instead of “name-of-person” says.

    If a visitor makes a post, how can I get WP to show that “sally” sent it and still approve all posts/comments?

    Thanks for your help!

    Assuming that "sally" has her own login on your blog you could use the Template Tag, the_author, to display the post author.

    You would add something like:

    <?php the_author() ?>

    Usually this gets added to your theme's index.php file.
