Change ownership of a post (5 posts)

    It would be nice if the site admin could change the owner of a post. For example, they could go in and select a bunch of post by a user and then change the author to someone else.

    You can always make the change directly in the MySQL table. I had to do that when I realized I had posted something as 'admin' instead of my usual persona.

    I was just about the make the same suggestion that bsadler has just raised.

    Rossz is right but for mainy admins it's not entirely practical to edit the MySQL table - my hosting is such that I have to gain access via the browser. The usability sucks - it's fine for occasional changes, but I have to do this regularly.

    A little drop-down box on the dashboard (for admin only) would be a wonderful boost to usability, especially for those of us using WordPress as editors of a collaborative site.
