    Hello!

    I’m afraid it’s not possible to show the author information, as the theme isn’t setup to. Not showing the author information seems odd to me, however, so I’m going to pass this by our other developer and unless he or the WPcom theme team object, we’ll push out an update that shows the author on each post.

    I’ll follow up with you when I hear back.

    Thanks!

    Hello again :)

    We’re going to push an update through for this, and are ‘just’ in the process of figuring out the final design. This will go through in the next couple days or early next week.

    Thanks!

    We’ve pushed an update, so it’s just waiting approval before it goes live (hopefully by tomorrow).

    Thanks!

    Hmm, it looks like the WPcom theme team raised some concerns with the update we pushed, citing unexpected behavior for existing users (to have the author suddenly start showing). We’re going to try the update again along with an option to hide or show the author info, so I’ll let you know when we’ve got that in place.

    We made this update to the WPorg version of the theme as well, so you can see what it (hopefully) will eventually look like (save the social media icons, which are removed in the WPcom version): http://demos.press75.com/clear-news/

    Thanks!

    And hello again :)

    We’ve pushed another update for you to look for. If it goes through, you’ll find an option under Appearance > Customize > Theme to display the post author info (it’s a checkbox), but I’ll let you know if we run into any issues (I don’t suspect so this time).

    Thanks!
