Inconsistent info lines after conversion from MT (2 posts)

    I have just converted my sites from Moveable Type to WordPress.
    Everything seems to have gone fine except the Info line where the conversion appears to have been inconsistent. I have been unable to fix this, and checking your help pages, it says the relevant screen options are hidden.

    On these sites
    http://nwcoastenergynews.com/
    http://robinrowland.com/wns/

    I see Posted by Robin Rowland (which is what I want)

    But on these sites, the name does not appear.
    http://robinrowland.com/writing/robins-weir/
    http://robinrowland.com/rrowland_photography/robin-rowland-photography/
    http://taoofnews.com/tao-of-news/

    The author byline did appear on all five original MT blogs.

    So what do I do to make sure the name appears in all posts on all sites?

    Also I would like a time stamp to appear on a couple of those sites?
    How do I do that?

    thanks

    RR

    You would have to modify your theme's template files to get the author text/link to show up on all of your pages.

    You can use the_author() to display the name of the author of the post - http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_author
