    On my category archives page I am wondering if there is a way to target the authors name (which is h3 in each post) and keep the styling for h3 so that the authors name shows up separate from the rest of the text and in cursive font like it does in the single posts.

    Thanks

    Hi Mellissa,

    That should certainly be possible. Be sure your theme has archive.php, then edit that file to achieve your goal.

    <h3 class="archiveAuthor"><?php get_the_author(); ?></h3>

    thanks! where in archive.php should i insert that line ? I'm not very familiar with php.

    <?php

    the only problem is that in each post by 'author' i do not mean, the person who posted the post.

    just in the content of the post I wrote, for example:

    <h3>'By Chris John'</h3>

    and i want this information to show up on the archive page still in the format of <h3>

    That template uses excerpts - tags are stripped by default:
