Who’s Admin?

Who’s posting on your WordPress site? Each post can have an author listed below the post title. Often times it will appear as “admin” or just your last name or your first initial and your last name. If your login id is psmith, that’s what often shows up as the author of a post.

To make it a bit more obvious who is writing the posts, you can  change the author to your first and last name by following these simple steps:

1. Log into your site’s Dashboard.

2. Under Users on the left, click on Your Profile.

3. If there are blanks for your first and last name, fill them in.

4. Under “Display name publicly as” you can select first, last, first and last or last and first.

Just remember that Ernest Hemingway and Emily Dickinson are already take and you are better off using your real name.
