    I have four Weaver sites. When I post, three of them say “Posted by David Guion.” I just posted https://music.allpurposeguru.com/2023/07/sleepy-lagoon-by-eric-coates-and-jack-lawrence/ and noticed a comment submitted to two earlier posts asking who wrote them! That seemed dumb, but then I noticed that they say “Posted by [1]” I can’t find the setting that controls that. I have no idea if it’s a WordPress setting or a Weaver setting.


    It appears there is a CSS problem linked to the fact you are using a counter of some sort (what shows as [1])

    I am not sure where the counter comes from if it is from weaver or from a plugin.

    There is a CSS rule that I think is meant for the counter but appears to affect the Author’s name and kicks it back 99999999px out of the screen

    .fn {
    counter-increment: footnotes;
    display: inline-block;
    font-size: smaller;
    text-indent: -9999999px;
    vertical-align: super

    May be @weaver can tell us if the counter is from weaver and this is a bug, or if is from a plugin and their CSS if screwing the theme.

    Check on you side if you know where the counter comes from or wait until weaver answers, and if it is a plugin there will be CSS we can give you to fix it.



    The rule to fix it and to be added to the Theme Global Custom CSS Rule box is

    .fn {font-size: initial;text-indent: 10px;vertical-align:baseline;}



    You can / should disable the Weaver II to Weaver Xtreme plugin. That is supposed to be a one time conversion, and does not include anything important. But it doesn’t do anything now except slightly slow down your site to load the plugin.

    But that is almost certainly nothing to do with the problem.

    That code to show the author name has not changed in a very long time. I do think that another plugin could be intercepting the WP core functions used to get the author name, but I can’t tell which one that might be.

    The only thing I can think of would be a plugin that is somehow supposed to be interacting with author name.



    I deactivated that plugin and a couple of others that looked obsolete. Then I looked to see how many posts displayed {1} instead of my name–and there were none. My name is right were it belongs now, but it wasn’t this morning. I’m pretty sure the problem started within the past month and now it seems to have stopped. I still have no idea what happened, but thanks for the suggestion to deactivate that plugin. As you say, it probably didn’t have anything to do with the problem. It doesn’t make any sense that the others would, either, but it looks like I won’t be having anyone else ask who wrote the posts!
