This is really easy to do. The only thing that can cause a problem is that the screen options might not be displaying the Author field on the edit post / edit page screen. But, again, it’s easy enough to get this to appear.
In today’s world, the internet has dominated other form of marketing in such a manner that many of the well know advertisement printing industry has shut down over the years. There is web marketing, digital marketing, using SEO to market to which you can see this great post to read and understand its significance. So while I write many posts and advertise various legit bands, but there are times I have taken a break just to enjoy life outside the digital world. I’ve seen a number of articles saying that you shouldn’t write a post apologizing for not writing new blog posts.
So, I won’t apologize. Plus, I’m not all that sorry because I’ve been so busy with work, getting back into shape, and enjoying life.
But, I didn’t realize how long it had been since I last posted until I was asked on Facebook why I had stopped blogging. I thought, “wait, I haven’t stopped blogging”. And then I realized so many months had gone by that it must appear that way.

On many WordPress sites the post meta is displayed below the title on the main blog page, the single post page and sometimes the archive page. This is the data that displays the author, date and number of comments.
Recently I was working on a project where some posts were going to have comments but others were not. Comments were going to be allowed on a post by post basis. I wanted to hide the comments link part of the post meta on posts were comments were not allowed but display it on ones that did have comments.
The WordPress excerpt is the first part of your post, unless you use optional excerpts, and will end with […]. This is not a read more or continue reading link. The default WordPress excerpt is 55 characters.
Recently, I was working on project where the the main post page displays ads that have a very short blurb about them and then the full ad uses custom fields to display the rest of the pertinent information. One ad blurb was slightly longer than the others so we were getting the excerpt […]. Since this wasn’t happening with any other ads and was unlikely to happen very often, I decided that I wanted to make the excerpt longer so the content wouldn’t get split.
