    So I'm new. I'm trying hard. And there's a lot of things I can't figure out. But let's start with getting the blog to indicate which author has written a post. I use the drop down menu on the "write a post" page, but it doesn't attribute the post to a specific author. I've read the book, dug around, and can't figure this simple thing out. HELP!

    Thanks,

    Brad

    Hi Brad,
    login and go to the Presentation page, choose Themes Editor and edit the main Index template.
    You should find the <div class="postinfo>, with the specifications about the author of the post and the date/time
    L.

    That information is usually displayed as a result of placing the Template Tag, the_author in your theme's index.php file. In the WordPress Classic 1.5 theme (wp-content/themes/classic/index.php file) there is just such as example.
