How to Change the Author of a Post in WordPress

Do you want to change the author of a post in WordPress? If you do there is an easy way to do it. In fact, there are two easy ways to do it.

One of the ways of changing it is from the WordPress post editing screen.

From the publishing tools located towards the right-hand side of the screen, locate the Author section and you can change it from there.

That’s the first way.

The second way involves changing it from the All Posts section in WordPress.

Simply locate the post which author you want to change, hover your cursor on it and click on the Quick Edit button.

Doing so, you will see a bunch of things which you can quickly edit in a WordPress post such as Title, Slug, Date and even the Author.

You can change the author of the WordPress post from here and update the changes.

On top of that, you can also change the author of a few WordPress posts at the same time with the method above.

All you need to do is select the posts which author you want to change and bulk edit it.

It’s that easy.

Both ways of changing the author also works for pages.
