[resolved] admin cannot change post author since upgrade to MU 2.8.4 (4 posts)

    I upgraded WP (mu) from 2.6.5 to 2.8.4 ; Since then, I cannot change the post author when logged as admin: the dropdown menu isn't displayed.

    When logged as a user with posting rights, I get back the drop down menu with availables users.

    In other words:
    As long as I used version 2.6.5, I could assign a post from admin session to any other user. Since 2.8.4, I cannot anymore, the option in the "post" page isn't available.

    However, admin user can still post, and is then the author (which is not what I want: I used to create a post from within admin account, then assign to the correct user).

    Thanks for yout suggestions?

    Thank you MichaelH, I will follow your advice.
    EDIT: indeed a good advice, I found out that is it an already known issue: http://trac.mu.wordpress.org/ticket/1093, with a workaround: add site admin as admin of the blog.
