I'm trying to figure out where in the heck is the "Written by" tagline displayed at the top of each news article...basically, which css/php/whatever file holds the layout for articles and would contain that. Somehow the name of the article's author isn't showing up next to "Written by," and I'm trying to find out why. I've tried a couple of things already:
1) Switching the global "Show/Hide Author" option does NOT work: there is absolutely no change in the "Written by" text, and the author's name is still blank. It also doesn't work in the Article options menu either.
2) I tried searching for the configuration/template file on Google...a couple of articles mentioned a content.html.php file in the com_content folder, but I suspect that must have been for an earlier version of Joomla, as I don't have that file (I'm using 3.x). As of now, I don't know whether it's a css file, php file, or something else.
3) I tried to do a search on the source code in my site folder using "Written by," but I only came up with two language .ini files. Taking the "Written by" text out of those didn't change anything, either. I also tried "author"...nothing of any substance resulted. I don't know of any other variable name or text to key in on.
I think I may have altered something in the past and that's why the author name is not showing up beside the "Written by," but I can't be sure. Besides, doing a "Hide" on the Global options should have taken care of what's left, regardless. I'm pretty much at my wits' end. Can anyone help me with this?
UPDATE: I FINALLY was able to make the "Written by" text disappear (it was an option on the menu setting...Joomla seems counter-intuitive at times). However, I'm still at a loss regarding why the author's name doesn't show up next to the "Written by."
