How to change Author of posts to admin? (4 posts)

    First, I'm sorry about my English.

    I have a problem. When my blog doesn't have any user, I can post with my admin account with another nickname (so the sentence POST BY on the homepage would appear with my nickname). After that, there were 3 friends of mine registerd for 2 author and 1 editor. From that time, when I write new post, the Post Author section does not list my admin name or nick name anymore, just 3 new author/editor. I cannot post with my admin account anymore and I have to create another admin account with different name to post.

    You guys have any idea? I searched google but there's no topic about this. I'm using 2.6.1 anyway.
    Thanks.

    1. Create a new user and give them admin rights.
    2. Log-in as that new user.
    3. While logged in with them, change your main admin account to "subscriber" and save it.
    4. Now change your main admin account back to "administrator".
