    Is there any way to change the default user, I dont mean the user level. I mean, the user should be the default writer of new posts.

    If you're using Version 2.0+, if the user has the capability to publish posts, then the user is the writer of the post. See Roles and Capabilities.

    If you are an administrator, you can define the user's role from the Admin Panel (Users-Authors & Users).

    If your question is about changing the user ID of a post, you could run a MySQL UPDATE query on wp_posts. This is not how WordPress is intended to be used, so it's kind of a back door.

    If you want more detailed control over roles, look at Owen Winkler's Role Manager Plugin.

    Hi
    What if I have more than one publisher? So who is the default writer?
    So if I make only one user as publisher, so other users can write the post, but cannot publish. Will the publisher then be the default writer or not?
