Hey-

 

We're trying to set it up so I can attribute a blog post to a specific author without having to login to that author's account.  I'd like to be able to do it all from the admin page.  Our site is ThinkImmigration.org, but it doesn't have any posts up just yet, it's still being set-up.  We're using the Base Theme 1.0.2.

If you are an administrator, I don't think you'd need to log in to that specific author's account to attribute a blog post to that author. Have you tried seeing if this is the case?


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

You will need to create a new user profile for each person however you can use a "fake" email account if you wish to not have them have access to your site. Once they are set up as a user profile you can go directly into ALL POSTS (as yourself) and use Quick Edit to change the Author to the correct username from the drop down (see http://screencast.com/t/uYD2S9Kgny)
