Add Author Name to Posts (2 posts)

    New to WordPress and all this stuff and hoping you can help me. I am using the Post Author plugin to put the author name on each of my posts. However, I can only get Post Author to show the author name on the post permalink page - that is, only once you click through (via "read more" or on the post title) can you see who wrote the post. The problem is that many of the posts on our blog are too short to use a "read more" feature.

    So, I want to find a way to place the author name under the post title on the front/home page as well as the permalink post pages. I believe I have seen blogs that do this. Hopefully I can too. Any help is appreciated! If I can provide more information that might help, please let me know.

    FYI, I have tried to contact the plug-in support, but have not heard anything yet, so I am trying here too. I am happy to use a different plug-in and am not asking specifically for plug-in specific support. Just whatever you can help with.

    I have just installed the Author Name to Post plug-in and am having the same problem. I created my own theme using the WordPress Theme Gen program (www.wordpressthemegen.com). I've looked carefully in the Post Author settings and can't find anything that might incorporate this plug-in for the blog summary.

    Suggestions?? Will be very appreciated,
