Custom Post Type: Quick Edit changes 'the author' not 'modified author' (3 posts)

    I have a custom post type called 'Notices'.

    I create a new notice logged in as 'User1' and 'User1' is shown as the notice author.

    'User99' now logs in and uses the 'Quick Edit' feature on the notice list screen in the admin back end to change a notice. When they save their changes 'User99' is now recorded as the author, and not, as would be correct, the modified author.

    This behaviour doesn't seem to occur for ordinary posts.

    Has anyone else noticed this behaviour? Anyone got a fix?

    I see exactly the same thing. The problem is that if the post_author is only a subscriber, the Author dropdown will not include that author.

    If you only have two users and one of them is a subscriber, the Author dropdown is hidden completely.

    Here is a screencast of whats going on

    The same with 3.4.2 version. I make a Quick change..in any field..and the author changes to admin. What a bug!
