I get asked to look at a lot of different kinds of blogs, especially blogs that use WordPress. Having built and managed content on close to 500 WordPress sites over the last 12 years, I’ve seen close to “it all” when it comes to WordPress Content Management.
But one thing I seem to keep seeing lately is a lack of professionally displaying the author’s name on posts. Specifically, I tend to see the WordPress username displayed as the author name.
There is an easy way to fix this / change it globally. Go to your WordPress Admin and click “Users” on the left hand side nav menu.
Then select the Author’s name from the user list. Add a First Name and Last Name. Then update the user, then go back in and select “First Name Last Name” from the drop down that says “Display User Publicly As” — and BOOM, you’ve fixed the problem globally.
