How do I change format of the_author() output? (2 posts)

    Hi there,

    I'm running my own theme file (a modified version of the Rin tin tin theme) at my site http://www.avalon5.com

    What I'm trying to do is faily simple (or at least it should be); I'm trying to add some BOLD formatting to the author name which is printed at the bottom of every post.

    I can see from the php code that the function called is the_author()... but where do I find this and how do i add in the required formatting?

    Thanks in advance.

    Try this:

    <strong><?php the_author() ?></strong>

    Dunno where it is in your theme, but it's in mine in index.php and single.php.

    Good luck.
