I just realized the usual WordPress admin stuff that used to show up below a draft post in the admin area is replaced in PageLines by PageLines Meta Settings. I need to change a post author from one authorized admin to another. (I posted it , he wrote it, and I want his name on the post as author.) Used to be easy in plain old WP. I've looked around a little without luck in PageLines. Where and how do I change a post author from one registered admin to another?

Hi, Go to the post, top right and select Screen Options; a panel will open. Check the box that says Author. Close the Screen Options. Scroll down and you should see a bar for Author with a drop down list. Select the author's name, then update or save the post.

Makes me wanna holler "Hooray." Thank you for introducing me to Screen Options, which may come in handy lots more times.

Glad that worked... and you will use it more often than you think.
