How can we change the author of a PAGE ? (4 posts)

    Hi!

    I am trying to change the author of a PAGE. Should be simple but...
    Although there is no problem concerning POSTS, it seems it cannot be done for a PAGE (at least out of the box)

    Of course pages can be deleted and recreated with correct user but I wanted to avoid this step.

    Any idea how I could proceed?
    THANK YOU ALL for your help.

    Cheers!

    You can change the author of a page exactly the same way as a post. There are many panels on both editors, some are hidden by default. Go to your page editor and open Screen Options in the top-right corner of the page, and just show the Author panel.

    Or from the pages list, use the quick edit option - that's handy if you want to change several pages.

    THANKS A LOT Douglas!!!
    Well we feel sometimes quite silly opening a topic for such an easy solution but I promise I searched before posting...
    Following your answer, I just checked "Author" in the Screen Options and it worked perfect.
    Don't know why I didn't think about it. So obvious...when u know how :-)

    THANKS again and hope it might help a few other guys too!

    Cheers!
