Hi, i would like to display the blog author in the blog lists and also under the title, please. Can someone advise? I want the author to be credited in the BLOG LIST, above the date created, and also under the TITLE in the BLOG PAGE.

Any thoughts?

Hello There,

You can use the {{ article.author }} variable to display the author. More info on the article object
here: https://help.shopify.com/en/themes/liquid/objects/article#article-author

Blog post contents are usually in a template/section called something like article-template.liquid. Look for that, then look for a place where you'd like to put the author. I would wrap it like this:

<p id="article-author">Author: {{ article.author }}</p>

Hi @samrose,

Hyde here from Shopify.

You could try removing the blog author from your blog entirely, and simply including it in the content of the blog page instead.

For example, with the Debut theme, you can turn the blog author on and off in your theme's settings. Head to Online Store> Themes > Customize Theme. From that page, you'll want to navigate to your blog, then use the menu on the left-hand side to uncheck the option to show the author. There's more on that here.

Once you do that, the only way your visitors will know who the author is, is if you include the name at the start or end of the actual blog post. You can use a different font, size, or style to differentiate it from the other text.

I hope that helps!

All the best, Hyde.
