    <?php the_author() ?>
    Add it so your index.php, single.php and archive.php somewhere around the_content, <div class="postmetadata"><?php the_time('jS F Y') ?>, etc.

    I'm having the same issue as the above user and all my .php files have the correct settings/inclusions for displaying the author's name. I've checked all the files and the <?php the_author() ?> string is there but will not show the author next to the date. I'm using Word Press 2.3.3 (would like not to upgrade if possible)
