  • Did you modify the template? You need to add ‘<?php the_author() ?>’ where you want it to show.


    Q: Where is the author name?!
    A: I removed it, with the thought, that since most blogs are one-person operations, it isn’t used too often. The code is however still in the template. Go to line 81 in index.php and uncomment the piece of PHP code there. Then, go to line 137 (the line before it should say “This entry was posted”). Now either create a new line, or insert the following code right after ‘This entry was posted’
    by <?php the_author() ?>.

    Also, there is more info here:

    That was weird….suddenly when you asked me a question about my page I was able to go to : /
    and located another file called index.php
    Within that file was a peice of script that looked like yours above.
    <?php the_author() ?> except it was commented out.
    It must have been like that “from the factory”.
    oriecat-Thank you for taking the time to help me.

    Funny thing I did read the article from Milkphish.
    But as a reader I couldn’t tell if he’s talking about his own site or the software that he wrote or what.
    Anyway thank you again.

    is possibile made it clickable to author profile?
