On one of my blogs (real blog, not splog) I have another writer. Unfortunately, people are confusing she and I, even though her posts go to her own category and all her posts are done in her name.

I'd like the "Posted by" to be much, MUCH larger so maybe, just maybe, people will realize I'm not the married woman in the UK who is writing that article!

I wasn't quite sure which file to change (single post, main template?) and figured it would be to be a CSS thingie.

Ok, 2 of those dealt with comments, but this is more of the "posted by" link being in a larger font on the main page, not comments or editing. She doesn't edit anything as I don't think she'd know how .. she just makes posts that people think are me

i dont see why you dont just make her a diffrent name? then they would know....i dont see any plugins for it....

i could try and make one...so it would change the size or color of a diffrent authors id...not sure though

She posts under another name, but the people are too stupid to realize I'm not her!

I don't want a plugin, I just want to modify my template and CSS file to make the "posted by name" much larger ...

I would suggest make a post introducing the other author and make it sticky for a few weeks or until people realize that there are two authors.

I did that ... but they still don't get it. They're horny guys who see some chick talking about her husband and they think it's me!

I managed to get "posted by" bold but still can't get it larger, even though I created a class for it.

if i knew more about css you could do it if you could somehow make the author id a diffrent size but i think im stumped on this one :(

Yeah, css is not my forte at all ... usually Brav helps with that *hint hint*
