I have created a new substrate blockchain using the frontier node template. https://polkadot.js.org/apps/?rpc=wss%3A%2F%2Falice.ekratos.cat#/explorer Everything works, but in the Polkadot portal, the recent blocks only show the block number and hash but do not show the block author (like I see in all other networks). Why?

You need the pallet-authorship pallet. Add it to your runtime, and you can see the author of every block.
