Delete user but keep them cited on posts? (2 posts)

    Just curious if anyone knows the best way to make a user inactive yet still keep their posts attributed to their profile? I don't want a bunch of unused writers sitting around for security issues but I also don't want to delete them and have their posts attributed to another user. Is this possible?

    Hello,
    Looking at this thread I don't think that is possible, but have you had any luck in resolving this otherwise?

    This looks like a workaround;
