Editorial Calendar
[resolved] Change author in quick edit form (9 posts)

    Hi,

    First, I would like to thank you for your great plugin. This is precisely what I needed for the multi-author blog that I want to migrate to WP.

    As this has been suggested previously, I think it would be great to be able to (optionally) show a drop-down list to change the author in the quick edit form. This would be a very nice way to attribute days to authors: just create blank articles under their name.

    Alternatively, using the "official" quick edit menu (that which we find in "All posts") would do, if that is technically possible.

    Thank you very much,
    Nauhaie

    Hi Nauhaie,

    Thanks for using the calendar and a big thank you for the feature request. We're always in a push and pull between wanting to add more features to the calendar and needing to keep it simple. In this case we've weighed our options for adding the author to the quick edit dialog and decided to err on the side if simplicity.

    In the past we've discussed creating a new version of the calendar which is aimed more at multi-author blogs. We have some sketches, but we haven't moved too far with that project yet. Hopefully we'll find some time for it soon.

    For now the best we can offer is that you can schedule in the calendar and then jump into the standard post edit screen to set the author. I know it's a few more clicks, but hopefully not too bad.

    Thanks,
    Zack

    Hi Zack,

    Thanks a lot for your answer.

    In case anybody is interested, I implemented the feature (together with the "screen option" to enable/disable it).

    You can see the patch for edcal.php (version 2.6) here and the patch for edcal.js here. Of course, edcal.js has to be "compiled" with the closure.sh script that comes with the plugin.

    Zack, please feel free to reuse this patch if you think it can be a valuable addition to your plugin (no need to mention me or anything).

    Thanks,
    Nauhaie

    Thank you so much for the patch. I'm not familiar with Chop App. Is there an easy way to download the patch file so I can try it out?

    Thanks,
    Zack

    I don't know about Chop App, but I just put a .zip into my dropbox with both the modified files and the patch files. I didn't include the .min.js files, which therefore have to be regenerated.

    Please let me know if you like this new functionality. Nothing would make me happier than seeing it merged into the your plugin!

    By the way, the line

    jQuery('#edcal-author-p').html('');

    should also be removed, for consistency (which I forgot to do, sorry).

    Have you been able to try the modification?

    For everybody's information, I just merged my "quick author change" modification into the latest version (2.7).

    You can download the complete, modified plugin here from the link below. It should work out of the box, but of course, any automatic update in WP's admin will remove the modification. Unless the authors of the plugin choose to merge this modification into the official code of the plugin, which they are most welcome – and encouraged – to do).
