    Hey I'm trying to display the post author under the post title. Here is the code snippet I've tried to add. It's around line 206, I added the "'<p>By: </p>' . $post->post_author" part.

    foreach ($monthly_posts as $post) {
                            $html .= '<p>By: </p>' . $post->post_author . '<li class="ga_post">'

    What displays is "By:". The confusing part to me is that I can get $post->post_ID and $post->post_title to work. Also the $post definitely has a value for post_author. Here is the print_r($post):

    stdClass Object ( [ID] => 161 [post_author] => 2 [post_date] =>

    As soon as I resort to asking for help I figure it out. Haha! Anyways I'll post my solution here for anybody who comes across it again. The code I used to display username is:

    get_userdata($post->post_author)->display_name

    .

    There are still some visual formatting issues but that solves the major problem.

    Cheers,

    Dan

    Hey dan, could this code be modified to display thumbnails? I tried to use your code to display usernames but couldn't get it to work. where abouts did you put it?
