    Hi, I have a trouble with my WordPress.

    I want to delete user, but i need to keep his name at article ("posted by"). And his name doesn't will a link, but simple text.

    I don't want delete all posts by this user and I don't want move this posts under different user. I want only to keep his name at article.

    It's there any possibility, how to make it? Thanks and sorry for my English :)

    The posts have to be attributed to some user so, no, you can't delete this user and keep their details for the posts.

    If you want to do something like this, I'd suggest that you change that users email address and password. That way their details will still be in the sytem, but they won't be able to log in, and they won't be able to reset their password.
