User Role Editor
Can't change post author (3 posts)

    Hi,
    I created a new role for several users.
    Now, even though I am admin, I cannot change the author of my post to one of those users, and cannot author a new post under one of their names.
    This is despite the new role having the exact same permissions as either Contributor or Editor.

    Only when I revert the users back to one of the out-of-the-box roles can I really reassign posts to them

    Confused! Help!

    This has something to do with a bug in the WordPress core. Here's a workaround http://wordpress.org/support/topic/unable-to-assign-pages-to-users-with-a-custom-role

    I should re-check, if WP core really use some user level_x capability there.
