    I have manually copied a site for a friend from here


    to here


    but I notice on the new site that the author doesn't show for the posts, unlike the original. It's the same theme, so I'm not sure how it can relate to Tags, but any ideas welcome!

    Saw the same thing on this thread http://wordpress.org/support/topic/206615 and it looks like the OP there solved the problem but didn't post back what was done to fix the problem.

    slowliving - I don't know how you "manually copied the site" but if you check your database, you might be missing wp_users in transfer.

    This is code from Morning After theme

    <div class="post_meta">
    By <?php the_author_posts_link(); ?>

    This is how it rendered correctly in old blog from source

    <div class="post_meta">
    By <a href="http://gnewdesign.co.uk/claire/?author=2" title="Posts by thinker">thinker</a>

    This is how it rendered missing author/user in new blog from source

    <div class="post_meta">
    By <a href="http://thatthinkingfeeling.co.uk/?author=1" title="Posts by "></a>

    Hi mercime

    Thanks for this info. It makes some sense to me but I'm not sure what to do to rectify it!

    I have checked through phpmyadmin and wp_users table is in there, and the user is in there (only one user). What settings do I need to check?

    Best wishes
