[resolved] My first 3.2.1 20/11 site shows author names on posts, my 2nd does not. (3 posts)

    I just built the 2nd one a month after the first. I don't remember having to use a setting to make the author name post the 1st time, and I gave up looking for one at the new site.

    Any ideas?

    1st site: http://redskinstailgate.com/

    2nd site: http://lsutigerstailgate.com/

    twenty eleven only shows the author name if more than one author is writing in the blog.

    done by this line in style.css:

    .single-author .entry-meta .by-author {
    	display: none;
    }

    however, the author name is shown in the single post's meta data.

    also, in content-single.php, this conditional code is controlling the output of the author bio info in single posts:

    <?php if ( get_the_author_meta( 'description' ) && is_multi_author() ) : // If a user has filled out their description and this is a multi-author blog, show a bio on their entries ?>

    Ha ha, problem solved... I made a video post in another contributor's name, and they popped right up.

    One staff member only provides graphics, the other 2 were waiting on me to finish the new "template" for the overall site style. I had done all the rest myself.

    Thanks friend.
