WordPress: How to Change Author

Having trouble finding where the change the author for a post in WordPress? I will show you how.

  1. Select the “Post” section on the right pane.
  2. Expand the “Status & visibility” section.
  3. Select the “Author” drop-down menu to select another writer.

If you don’t see the “Author” box, you will need to go to “Users” on the left pane and add a new user with permissions to write.
