  • I have exactly the same issue. I like the plug-in except for that one feature — the byline doesn’t appear under posts appearing on the home page. Pretty important. I’m not sure I can stick with the plug-in without that feature.

    Does anyone out there have a solution?

    I’m going to look into that and see if I can make an update within the next few days. I’ll post again here and on the main plugin thread.


    Any update on this? I’d like to see this functionality too.

    I’d also like this same functionality in this plug-in. Any update at this time?

    I would also like to know how to do this. I love the plug-in, but need to be able to put the author name under title on main page.

    me too.. also i was wondering how to the Add author to Categories works and how the 2 options Place author box before excerpt & Hide author box on home category work?

    Wow… Love this plugin… how do we get it on the Home page?

    I think found a work around… just type in the following in the post area in content.php:

    `<?php if ( ‘post’ == get_post_type() ) : ?>
    <div class=”entry-meta”>
    <?php twentyeleven_posted_on(); ?>
    <span> <?php if ( is_page() || is_archive() ) { echo(‘ ‘); } else { echo(‘ by: ‘); the_author_posts_link(); } ?> </span>
    </div><!– .entry-meta –>
    <?php endif; ?>`

    This will print out the author on every page that is not a “page” or archive.
    I’m using the twenty-eleven theme.

    Then I just turn off the posts on the Post Author plugin. I keep the pages on because I like the option to insert the author or not.
