    I have checked author-field in custom post type basic features as I want the admin allow to change the post-author.

    However, the author drop-down field is shown to all other users having the right to publish/edit this custom post type.

    What can I do to hide the author field from non-adminstrator users?

    Thanks

    Have you tried looking at the Role Scoper plugin? The CCTM is not focused on extending WordPress permissions — it just tries to be transparent.

    Yes, I have tried Role-Scoper (RS). However, I did not succed to control post_author-field with RS.

    It would make a lot of sense:

    1) to allow admin to change post_author
    2) to hide post_author-field from non-admin users!

    No great thing to introduce that small feature into CCTM-plugin? This would be great!

    I can do this manually for myself (spending some time on this), however this would generate conflicts with automated plugin-updating.

    Thanks a lot

    Sorry, I was wrong! Role Scoper (RS) works fine indeed for this:

    RS: assigning type-specific Roles (Roles > General) I can allow the user to edit his own posts only.

    WordPress automatically hides post_author field from those users then!

    Thanks
