Hello,

It appeared everything was going to work fine but when I clicked on Change Author and typed in the new authors name and saved.  The author did not change.  Any ideas what went wrong?

 

Just tested in my dev board and worked fine, pm me with credentials so i can have a look.

Okay, maybe I had better try updating to latest version of IPS, first.  I do not want to waste your time.  I will let you know how it goes.  I will have to wait to do that tomorrow, got to go for now.

Thanks

Could you add or let me know how to add other groups other than the basic 3 (admins, moderators and root admins) 

Would this be possible? We have a event forum and I'd like to allow event leads to change the first post's author with out giving them global admin rights

Hi @-RAW-

Excellent mod ! Thanks

1) How can we add more user groups? I only some of them.

2) I'm running a non english board, how i can get the translations done?

Edit: found them, only 1 string seems to use one of downloads instead of its own (hover on Change Author): change_author_title

Maybe change it to use a string in this module? this would allow to translate it correctly

I would also like this available.

One thing I don't like and I don't know it's possible to change is......

When I change the Author, it shows correctly, but the topic starter doesn't change

Many thanks

Fixed and yes, it changes the author in proper tables.

Brilliant, thanks Adriano. Have you taken over this project?

I love this plugin and use it regularly :)

There are still little bits that, in my eyes, need changing to make it perfect :)

1) The original author still shows in the Activity Stream despite changing it

2) If you have a Topic by Member A and a reply by Member B, the forum list shows the last post by member B as you would expect. If you change the author of the Topic to Member C, the forum list shows the last post by Member C as well (even though the latest post is Member B's reply). A workaround is to firstly change the author of the first post to Member C, then change the author of the reply from Member B to Member B. It then displays correctly, but adds an extra step

Sorry to be a pain, but having tested a little further, the update has fixed those problems, but broken the earlier one of the topic starter and latest poster being different:-
