[Plugin: Post Author] Works for pages, not for posts (3 posts)

    First, big thanks for the plugin. My site relies on user contributions and I desperately need a way to give the contributors credit without giving them free run of the site.

    The plugin works great for pages but I can't get it to work for posts. I have a custom theme and I'm wondering if it's because the theme programmer has the following in the single.php:

    <?php the_author_posts_link(); ?>

    I don't see this in the WP standard single.php.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated and please remember I'm a NEWBIE. :)

    Hard to tell, but make sure you have the options for that plugin set to display author info for posts.

    Hi two_iron,

    thanks for your thanks, as Michael said, there is an option to display author info on pages, posts, both or none, in the plugin settings.

    As for your theme, what you want to see in the template file is a call to the_content (since Post Author Plugin adds the info to that section).

    Let us know if you're still in the haze :)

    David.
