    How do I make it say Posted on -date- by -whoever- at the top of each new log instead of just saying the date under the log name?

    I was wondering a similar thing, but whenever I try that link I get a 404. I've managed to find where the tag is in the file, and got it to display, but I can't figure out how to get the line to read "posted on [date], by [name]" instead of "[date] [name]".

    My site is http://www.smileordie.l2p.net/ if that helps, and I'm using a modified version of the default 1.5 theme. Only modified in layout and colours, though.

    Hope you can help me.

    Edit line 11 in index.php (main template)
    <small><?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?> <!--by <?php the_author() ?> --></small>

    remove the comment tag around by author so it looks like this:
    <small><?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?> by <?php the_author() ?> </small>

    Uh, when I visit your site I see:

    "Posted on February 27th, 2005 by Chris"

    Isn't that pretty much what you want? Anyway, you can use:

    Posted on <?php the_time('F j, Y'); ?>, by <?php the_author(); ?>

    Used the_time() to assure it works for each post (the_date() only displays for each new day/date, so two posts in the same day would only show the date on the latest).

    Yeah, I've got it working now, thanks. At first, what I thought would work didn't, but I suspect it may have been a caching issue with my browser. Bah. Anyhow, thanks again for your help.

    I got this to work on the front page.

    But not if I look at the blog by month or category.

    Any way to add it there, also.

    You'll have to do the same in archive.php.

    I can't get it to work at all. All I have is a blank page for the default 1.5 theme, and it won't work at all in my own theme, so i have no idea what's wrong here.

    But what if you want the Posted by to be at the bottom of the post instead of the top?

    I put <small><?php the_time('l, F jS, Y') ?></small>

    at line 40 of archive.php

    where it originally said <small><?php the_time('l, F jS, Y') ?> — by <?php the_author() ?></small>

    and it worked perfectly -- thanks!

    oops, the other way around

    (and that mdash is actually a character entity "& mdash ;" not the character itself)

    So glad I found this thread, it helped me.
    This would be a good GUI feature (including author name).
    If I don't find a similar request in the feedback section, I'll suggest it.
    But it's good to know we can change it by hand.
