    How do I set up multiple authors on 3.1? Do I need a plugin?

    can't you just assign author role to whomever you want?

    How do you get the post to show up with the correct author? For instance a man and wife want to do individual posts and get credit separately for the posts they write individually. How do I add a second author without changing the the credit on all the posts?

    You just need to set up new users, and whoever the logged in user is will get credit for writing the post.

    If you need to edit existing post authors, the edit post screen does have an author dropdown that includes all the registered users who can author posts. If you do not see that dropdown, click Screen Options at the top right of the page, and click the checkbox that says Author.
