Custom Labels for Author box on Custom Post Types' Write Panel

  1. Jon Bourne

    It would be nice if we could use the built-in user management features of WordPress and label the Author box in the Write panel something other than Authors.

    For example, I have a site that uses a custom post type called courses, which is a course database for a school. The instructors for the course are contained in the users table. To select the instructor for a course, you choose from the Author dropdown menu. This is not very intuitive. It would be nice if this could be set to display Instructor or something more relevant.

    For events, you might use the label Coordinator.

    For groups, you might use the label President.

    This may be plugin territory, but either way, it would sure be nice to be able to label this box for this reason. Thanks.
