I've added $Author.FirstName to the top of each blog post. Ont he homepage, this comes through excellently, on all other page types The name doesn't show and the source shows:
<a href="" title=""></a>
I copied and pasted it and can't see anything in hompeage.php that cause this to appear.
I've had a look at your code. The problem is that CoolCompanyIndividual extends SiteTree. This means that it doesn't have an Author field.
Author field is defined on BlogEntry.
So, instead you should make CoolCompanyIndividual extends BlogEntry (and CoolCompanyIndividual_Controller extends BlogEntry_Controller).
This lets you start with BlogEntry as "a base", and build CoolCompanyIndividual on top of that.
