Support » Themes and Templates » Cant show author name or limit post size
8 years, 1 month ago
so basically we have two bloggers, and we would like the author of each post to show so people whos story this is
another problem is I cant seem to limit the size of the post on the main page. I would like it to be only 4 lines or so and then a button to read more.
1. Edit your theme to include the_author template tag.
2. Put “<!–more–>” in the post where you want the more to appear. Or just click the “more” button in the editor to insert that. See: http://codex.wordpress.org/Write_Post_SubPanel#Quicktags
thanks for the more button, it works now. thanks again!
I still cant get the author part to work tho. I had seen that part before but I am not sure where to put. In what php file and where in the file. I tried putting it in different templates with no luck
You would put it in the index.php or single.php file, most likely. Inside The Loop.
Just what i needed, thanks!
Looked everywhere for the <!–more–> tag lol
