Hey there, 

I just set up a basic author for my blog. The name appears in my Permissions settings. However when I create a blog post, I cannot select her as an author, and only myself comes up as an option. 

Could anyone give me a hint?

To my understanding, once I save the basic author in Permissions, it should come up as an option in my blog editing settings but somehow that is not happening.

Thanks very much!
