Support » Fixing WordPress » “post author” drop-down missing on Edit Post screen
7 years, 4 months ago
I’m having a problem getting the “post author” drop-down (on the edit post screen) to appear on certain posts. This seems to occur in the following situation:
1. I, as admin, publish a post.
2. I, still logged in as admin, edit the post to assign it to a different user. For this step, the “post author” drop-down DOES appear.
3. If go back into editing the post, the “post author” drop-down DOES NOT appear. This is true if I log out/in as admin; if I log out and back in as the user to whom it was assigned; etc.
In other words, once I assign authorship to someone not me, I lose the “post author” drop-down, preventing me from editing authorship after that first change.
Any help appreciated!

Hi, I’ve the same problem before. Just add another Administrator. Then you can see the Post Author will be visible in Quick Edit. Not sure whether this is a bug or the feature needs 2 Administrator. TQ.
