    Hi, I'm brand new to WordPress. I am trying to figure out what setting I need to turn on to show post authors (ie. a post will say who the author is automatically). I can't figure out where to turn this on (or if such an option actually exists!).

    I ask because I have a blog with 5 different "authors". I want to be able to tell at a glance who is the author of each post. Thanks!

    You just need to add the author tag to your template wherever you want the info to appear.
    <?php the_author(); ?>

    Just use the proper template tag in your template(s) where you want the author's name to appear:
    the_author
