In 3.4.7, we have the ability to set the article author to someone other than the person entering the actual article. We use this frequently for guest article posts where an article will be submitted to us but then one of the admins actually does the posting. We do it this way so we don't need to grant IP.C editor access to someone who may only post an article once or twice and also because we have too may issues with the existing Promote to Article function.
It’s still possible in the ACP, but not anymore on the front end.
Updated the title to be more specific
This is still missing.
I would like this very much as I end up posting almost all articles for our club . Then I race to the ACP and database settings to change the author to the responsible party. I think it could be somewhat confusing for anyone following a category and receiving notifications as to who's really posting.
Definitely would like to see this ability from 3.4 brought back. Come on IPS, why cut such great features?? First promote to article and then this.
One of our fine Marketplace developers @Adriano Faria is coming to our rescue on this.
Waiting to be approved.
It's a bug of a couple of my site(s) helpers but to be honest, it's never really bothered me at all.
It's good to see a release for it though.
