New option to assign topic author

The option to assign the topic author to any member of the community is now available for moderators.  This is useful when you need to create a blog post or news article on behalf of someone else. The user you select is displayed as the author of the post. 

Access this option by creating a new topic or editing a topic in the Admin > Moderate area. In the side column under Author, search by name and then select the user. Click Save. Your topic author has now been set!

  • I'm not seeing this option.  Is there something I need to do to enable?

  • Hi Ted, thanks for your question! This option is available when creating or editing a topic in the Admin > Moderate area. Be sure that you are in Edit mode. If it is an existing topic, click "Edit" from the cog menu, then you should see the option in the right column. Let me know if that helps!
