Support » Plugin: Co-Authors Plus » Posts of deleted User/Co-Author should stay with other Co-Authors, no?

  • I am trying to use the co-author plugin to add a co-author for pages made by company employees on behalf of the company, that also make their own posts to the blog. When an employee leaves the company their username and posts are to be deleted, but we want to keep the pages they’ve posted on behalf of the company.

    In testing I set up fake users and a fake co-author. The user posted pages and posts. For the pages I assigned the co-author to it as well.

    Then I went to delete the test user and their posts, hoping/believing the posts would delete, but the pages would remain with the co-author and not be deleted, but they were too!?

    Is it possible to achieve what I am after with this plugin?

    Also, I do get this string error when trying to pull up a list of the guest author posts. I don’t know php, so I don’t know what this telling me.

    Warning: stripslashes() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in /nfs/c10/h01/mnt/145486/domains/ on line 286

    I also have the Genesis co-author plugin installed, which is supposed to give this plugin full functionality on my genesis theme, if that matters.

    And what is ‘WordPress User Mapping’? I’ve looked for an explanation, but can’t find one. Maybe this is where I reassign the co-author posts to another before deletion?

    Thanks for any help here.
