[resolved] 1/3 admins cannot change author name on posts (5 posts)

    For some time now (cannot remember since when), one of the three admins of my site has not been able to edit author names of posts in draft. I and the third admin can. I triple-checked the user account for the admin in question, and the settings on her profile look exactly like those of mine and the other admin.

    The only difference is that she was added as an admin about a year or so after me and the other admin. We've been admins since the blog was born in 2008.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Has she tried using another browser? Another computer?

    Yes. At work, she's on a Windows machine using Firefox. At home, she's on a Mac using Chrome.

    Have you tried logging in using her credentials?

    Aha! I figured it out. She was looking in the field for our submission form. The regular "author" field was not visible. I turned it on, and now all is well. Thanks!
