I have been trying find a way to display the author of posts at http://earnmoneyinsider.com

I am not having a lot of luck!

Does anyone here know how to accomplish it? I am thinking about finding a plugin for author bio boxes and just injecting those under body content, but not sure what I will come up with there.

Thanks for any simple solution for this.

If it helps I've just installed this plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/...r/screenshots/

It seems promising with a bit of tweaking.

EDIT: It works. Just need to edit the CSS to get different display.

That's what I was afraid of, JuggleDad. Thanks for linking the thread to confirm. I had found it in searching at first, but didn't want to necro it.

@virtualmotorpix: Yep, I've installed an author box as well now, I guess it'll be better to do that for now at least. Whole site might get a total overhaul eventually anyhow.

Thanks to you both!

Strangely i managed to get the author displayed today (just added
Code:
<?php the_author_meta( 'display_name' ); ?>
by editing 'single.php' in the Montezuma Options).

Some hours later... and it's gone. /confused

That code works in the postformat.php but not if you put it in single.php

And it is back, author name is showing in the single posts.

I do not understand why (did not change anything to the theme itself today). I did install the WordpressJetpack plugin, thatís the only difference (I rather not do want to disable it now, to see if the author name then disappears).

Works on my single.php, too.
Haven't testet it without Jetpack. Jetpack was one of the first plugins I installed.

I splitted and enhanced post-footer and put this part between title and content:
Code:
<div class="post-footer">
<?php the_time( 'd. F Y' ); ?> &nbsp;&nbsp;| <a href="<?php the_author_meta( 'user_url' ); ?>" alt="Seite von <?php the_author_meta( 'display_name' ); ?>"><?php the_author_meta( 'display_name' ); ?></a> |&nbsp;&nbsp; <p class="post-categories"><?php the_category( ' &middot; ' ); ?></p>
</div>
The div-class should now be called poster-header instead of post-footer. However it's not much a problem for me.

interesting, the jetpack plugin is having some effect because without it, nothing will show.
