[resolved] Admin posting as wrong author name (5 posts)

    Interesting issue here:

    RE: http://all.is

    I have my admin account and I have made a few other accounts. Once I logged in as one of these other accounts and now, everytime I make a post with my admin account, WordPress has the author as 'Alex' which is the account that I logged in as once.

    I have checked my wp_users table and it all seems in order for the users in question.

    I have tried deleting the real Alex account and I was able to assign all of it's posts to the admin account at which point they showed up correctly with the admin as the author. But when I remade the real Alex account, the posts showed up again as Alex

    Thanks in advance

    See that pretty frequently--here's a FAQ about it:

    Why isn't the admin user listed as an author when editing posts?

    A bit more:
    I am definitely logged in as admin because I can do admin duties.

    Also, The posts which were assigned to the admin account after deleting 'Alex' stayed with the admin account but new posts made as the admin are attributed to Alex.
