I can't seem to figure out how to have the author of the post's name show up, anywhere. Is this a theme setting or a WP setting. In the Users section of WP I selected something in the "Display name publicly as..." drop down, but nothing shows up. Again, I don't know if this is a WP setting or a Theme one....

Thanks!

There are ways to change how the author shows up but if you are having problems with anything showing in the name shows publicly box then something else is going on. Does your user name show up in that drop down in WP or is nothing there?

The name shows up in the drop down box, but I don't see an author's name anywhere on the post. Just wondering if I've missed a check box or something!

I use WordPress as a CMS so much that I never noticed the name doesn't show by default (I think). It looks like you have to add %author% to the Post and Page areas that you want it to show. In ATA go to Edit post/page info items and wander through there. It should give you the info you need.

see the examples at ATO->Edit POST/PAGE INFO ITEMS->BYLINE:
There are several BYLINE optyion locations (single page, multi post page etc) so you can have them act the same or different
