Display Author on Blog Front Page? (9 posts)

    What I want to do is see the author noted below the post title on the front/home page. That is, the author name only seems to come up on the post's permalink page. Not all of our posts require a "read through" and most people will not be clicking the post title to go to the permalink page.

    Is there a way to have the author name listed below the post title on my blog homepage? I hope so. So many posts are read only on the front page without clocking through.

    Thanks!

    Dan

    I have exactly the same issue. I like the plug-in except for that one feature -- the byline doesn't appear under posts appearing on the home page. Pretty important. I'm not sure I can stick with the plug-in without that feature.

    Does anyone out there have a solution?

    Thanks,

    Jim

    I'm going to look into that and see if I can make an update within the next few days. I'll post again here and on the main plugin thread.

    I'd also like this same functionality in this plug-in. Any update at this time?

    I would also like to know how to do this. I love the plug-in, but need to be able to put the author name under title on main page.

    I think found a work around... just type in the following in the post area in content.php:

    `<?php if ( 'post' == get_post_type() ) : ?>
    <div class="entry-meta">
    <?php twentyeleven_posted_on(); ?>
    <br/>
    <span> <?php if ( is_page() || is_archive() ) { echo(' '); } else { echo(' by: '); the_author_posts_link(); } ?> </span>
    </div><!-- .entry-meta -->
    <?php endif; ?>`

    This will print out the author on every page that is not a "page" or archive.
    I'm using the twenty-eleven theme.

    Then I just turn off the posts on the Post Author plugin. I keep the pages on because I like the option to insert the author or not.
