How can I show author name??? « WordPress.com Forums

The point of displaying an author name is to differentiate the posts on an multi-author site. Regardless of the theme, and provided the theme is designed to display a byline, bylines will only display now if there are at least two official authors who both have at least one published post in the blog.

Display Author’s Name on Posts « WordPress.com Forums

Not all blog themes display an author name ie. a byline at all. Previously, there were theme specific variations. Also those themes that did display author bylines were changed by Staff not long ago. Regardless of the theme, and provided the theme is designed to display a byline, bylines will only display now if there are at least two authors who both have at least one published post in the blog.

Posts »Categories

Categories provide a helpful way to group related posts together, and to quickly tell readers what a post is about. Categories also make it easier for people to find your content. Categories are similar to, but broader than, tags. For more information on the differences between categories and tags please check out this support doc.

Custom menus | wordpress tips

The regular top menu of a theme automatically displays links to

– all your publicly published parent pages, [*]

– in alphabetical order (unless you assign order numbers),

– with dropdowns to child pages in some themes only,

– and nothing other than that (except a built-in Home link in some themes).

The names of the links will be the actual page titles, and each link will bring up the page in the same browser window or tab (replacing the page you were on).

[*] A few themes display links to parent pages and/or post categories.

A custom top menu replaces the regular one and displays what you tell it to display; it allows you to:

❇ Change the page order more easily.

❇ Display links to some instead of all your parent pages.

❇ Give the links names other than the actual page titles.

❇ Create submenus (dropdowns) without having to turn your pages into child pages.

❇ Create submenus if the regular menu of the theme doesn’t support them.
