As an administrator when I change or edit a post of an author (for example add a category through quick edit) the author of the post changes. We do not want this to happen. Is there a way to prevent this?

Both, quick edit and the regular post edit screen, offer an author field. Just take care to set the correct author when you edit something.

To see this field you have to enable it in the screen option in the upper right corner:

  • i don't see author field, neither in edit nor in quick edit... :( is this bound to a prop or feature. – spinodal Mar 1 '12 at 10:30
  • Yes, you need the capability edit_others_posts. You should add this capability to the person who is responsible for edits. – fuxia Mar 1 '12 at 10:37
  • thank you for your answer and the comments but i have the administrator role (which has that capability naturally i think)... but still can't see. – spinodal Mar 1 '12 at 11:14
  • @spinodal You may need to enable the field first. See my update. – fuxia Mar 1 '12 at 11:24

    i found out what is going wrong after your update. although I enabled everything in the screen options i did not see the author update combo. then I realize what is the source of the problem. ths problem was "co-authors" plugin... if you have that plugin you cannot edit the author through edit or quickedit – spinodal Mar 1 '12 at 11:48
