Authors Problem (6 posts)

    I'm having issues with the wrong author being listed for items on the main blog. I recently added another user to also be able to post to the main blog, the only problem is that when they post anything, the only author available to them in the "Post Auhor" field is me. At the moment I am finding myself manually editting the author_id field in the database to keep showing that their articles are from them and not me!

    Their posts on thier own blog work fine and show the proper author, so why not on the main blog?

    Has this person filled out their Your Profile selections? I remember something in the regular WP that that field would be blank if they had and if they hadn't choosen a "Name to display" selction or whatever its called.

    Just some questions to help narrow it down:
    Is the user loggin in to your computer ? (just in case)
    What's their author level on the main blog?
    What's your level on the main blog?
