Import from Blogger Lose Authors (3 posts)

    I just set up WordPress for the first time. That went smoothly enough. I imported my Blogger blog using the import feature, and everything looks great - except I lost the authors names for each post for my group blog. Is there an easy way to correct this? So far I have upgraded two of the authors from the default "subscriber" setting to "author". When I manually try to add either of them as an author for a given post, nothing happens. Any ideas?

    from what i have experienced, it has been like this since ever. infact, once when i imported blogger blog, the posts had no titles. had to put them in manually. that should be fixed by now i believe.

    It may be that I am just unfamiliar with how WordPress works. I have posted a new test post and no author is given for the post, even though there are more than 1 "author" set up in the users/authors section. How would I go about getting the author who wrote the post's name to show up somewhere on any post? Having done that, how do I manually add all of the authors names to their respective posts?
