    Hi all, I'm not very good at this, I'm afraid :(.

    I could have sworn the author used to show up with each post but now it doesnt.

    Is this a setting, if so where? If not, how can I correct it? What file would I start with?

    It may have been something I did, as I've been in and out of the files, trying to make it look different.
    We will have multiple authors on our blog, and need to be able to tell who typed what .

    Thanks in advance

    It is theme-dependant. Some themes have the_author tag others don't.
    You can check your index.php template (and the others where you want the authors' name to appear) and if it's not there, add the template tag:
