Authors and Posting problem (8 posts)

    I log in as Admin and go to write a post. If there is a post from someone else waiting to be reviewed , my post comes up with that authors name. I can change to another author from the author list, but I'm not in the list.(???) Any ideas?

    If you complete the First and Last Name fields in your Profile, does that resolve the problem?

    Hi Michael. No luck. I wrote a short post initially, and it posted correctly by my2cents (me). There currently are two other contributors who are in the list and both seem to work fine. Does it have anything to do with being the admin? It seems to default to the last post. I'm stumped.

    What if you create another admin user and login as that person?

    That worked, thanks. My original account still isn't recognized in the authors list. If I delete it, will all traces be gone so I can re-register it? I wanted to ask before I do something I can't reverse.

    You've got the right idea.

    Delete the 'admin' user. Then create a new one.

    That worked as well. All authors show in the list. On to the next challenge. Thanks again! (I'm sure I'll be back)

    I just recently had this problem too.

    Here's my dilemma with the workarounds.

    - I cannot delete a registered user's account. No way, not going to happen.
    - Creating a new "Admin" account, and deleting my old account, makes the links to the old post author for any articles I created previously, go no-where. Also, people that have subscribed to RSS feeds for my admin user's posts will not receive any new articles for the feed.

    There has got to be a fix for this issue. It's been going on for a few months already.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    BTW - I am using the latest WordPress install (2.6).
