[resolved] Changing the author of a post (3 posts)

    Is there a way to re-assign the author of a post after the post is published?

    When I first started using WP I somehow created two Author profiles for my site, both with the same name. I recently discovered that about half my posts are attributed to one profile and half to the other. Now, when a reader clicks on the author name next to a post it only links them to articles linked to that profile.

    I would like to re-assign all the posts to one profile and delete the second profile, but I can't figure out a way to do it. Is it possible?

    Thanks,
    Dale

    If you delete a user you get the chance to assign all that user's post to another user.
