I created some sample blog posts during development, and now want to change the author of those posts to the client. Yet, only I'm listed in the dropdown box when I try and change an entry's author.

Any ideas? Besides editing it in the database.

  • Is there some reason you can't edit the database? Seems like the most straight forward way. – Brad Bell Jun 20 '14 at 22:07
  • No, just convenience. I'll have to do it that way. All I need to update is the author_id in craft_entries, right? – Clive Portman Jun 21 '14 at 6:02
  • That should do it. – Brad Bell Jun 21 '14 at 6:36

Update the database: author_id column in the craft_entries table.

  • Yeah, yeah. I know. It's a sign of defeat. – Clive Portman Jun 24 '14 at 16:03

Can you edit the client's permissions settings so that he can edit and/or create entries? Because that's what necessary with the "Pro" package.

Another idea is to just rename your account, change the email and make it the client's.

    No, you can't edit permissions. I just assumed you'd be able to do that. Will make a feature request, maybe. – Clive Portman Jun 20 '14 at 13:31
  • @Clive What about the rename idea? – carlcs Jun 24 '14 at 14:12
  • Nah, that way they're the admin, right? – Clive Portman Jun 24 '14 at 16:02
  • Ok, that's probably not that what you want. Didn't think about that. X) – carlcs Jun 24 '14 at 22:01
