    I have created a blog and created multiple posts using different sitefinity users. Now I want each Blog's post to display specific user name on author's name. But each blog's post is displaying the Blog's author name instead.
    It seems like the post is only showing the Blog’s author name instead of different post's author name
    Please help

    Hi Asif,

    This can only be achieved by creating a custom field for blog posts. Take a look at the second post in this forum thread, where you will see an example on how to do that. In short, you need to add the value of the field in your web.config, then modify PostNew.ascx and PostEdit.ascx templates and map them to Sitefinity. You will find information on how to map your templates in the following KB.

    The 4.x version of Sitefinity offers this feature out-of-the-box. The name of the author of a blog post is displayed  in each blog post.

    All the best,
    Jen Peleva
