Author not displayed in WordPress posts

For some reason not all themes facilitate the opportunity to display the name of the author in the “posted on” line. However, by adjusting your theme’s CSS it is possible to display the author of the post.

1. Open style.css for your theme.
2. Locate line below.

/* =Entry Meta
----------------------------------------------- */
}

.single-author .entry-meta .by-author {
	display: inline;
}

This can come out several ways. If you cannot find the line, add it to your CSS. If it is there, change display from “none;” to “inline;” or simply remove that display line.
