WordPress plugin tutorial: How to change the post author in WordPress.
Sometimes you need to change the author of a WordPress post. This can be quite the hassle. Let’s say you have a WordPress website with a lot of blog posts. You don’t want to edit every single post one by one.
If you aren’t familiar with PHP, you can download the complete plugin. I uploaded the plugin to Gumroad. From there you can easily download the complete WordPress plugin for a small price.With this plugin you can easily bulk edit the author of a blog item, page or custom post type item.
Find the id’s of the post and author. You can easily find the id as a GET parameter within the url.
I worked on the code a little bit more and extended it into a WordPress plugin. Within the plugin you can loop through all the post and edit the post author. This can save you a lot of time when you accidentally created some posts with the wrong author.
