    How can I post the author's name "posted by Jane Doe" on new and already published posts?

    I have three different Usernames for my blog but the name after each of them is the same, mine.

    For the third Username, followed by my name, I have now set the role to "editor". Previously, the role was "author". I have checked the option to use this name publicly. How can I get this name to appear on each of the already published posts as "posted by Jane Doe" and on all new posts?

    I posted yesterday and was unable to get this info published with the post.

    To display the name of the author change the template that displays the posts and put a call to the the_author() function where you want to display the name of the author.

    Other functions for author information are listed on the page with Template Tags.
