[resolved] Ability to delete main author (7 posts)

    Hello all!

    I would love to be able to delete the main author of a post after I've added a new one, effectively changing author. Your plugin, in all its greatness, does actually remove this feature in WordPress when it is activated -- I would love to get it back.

    It's not terribly intuitive, but you can achieve this same effect by simply changing the main author to the new author of the post. To do so, click on the first author's name and type in your new author.

    Hope this helps.

    I found that out some time ago too. What is interesting to note is that only some users appear when typing their names in the box. I believe that's a bug.

    What is interesting to note is that only some users appear when typing their names in the box.

    Could you provide more details on this? In particular:

    • How many users do you have in total?
    • What percentage of users aren't accessible through the auto-suggest?
    • What other plugins are you running?

    Also, if you could provide screenshots (one of your user list and one of when you're trying to add a user but he/she doesn't appear), that would be great.

    Actually, now that I look at it, it seems as all users can be selected, but have to be so by their usernames!

    Ah, that makes sense. We actually have a ticket open to improve that. Hopefully in the next release...

    Just committed an improvement so users will be searched by display_name. Coming in the next release :)
