Changing Post Author On WordPress Posts?
Oops – you just wrote 100 posts on your WordPress website, and didn’t realize that you used the wrong ‘author’ name. But don’t worry – it’s a fast fix!
Unlike changing the author on Squarespace blog posts, which requires you to edit author information one post at a time, changing the post author on your WordPress site is a sort of bulk or batch action - that is, you can change author information for multiple posts all at the same time!
Log into your WordPress admin area, or dashboard.
View your ‘Posts.’
Select the posts for which you’d like to change the author by clicking the box and adding a checkmark beside each post.
At the top of the ‘Post’ screen, you will see several dropdown menus, including one that says ‘Bulk Actions.’
Click the dropdown menu, select ‘Edit’ and hit the ‘Apply’ button beside the menu.
Now you will be in a bulk post edit mode, where you can edit several items all at once – including ‘post author.’
Across the screen you will see another dropdown menu, beside which says ‘Author.’
From the ‘Author’ dropdown menu, select a different author from the list of your website’s registered Users.
Once completed, click ‘Update’ so your changes will be save.
