    Okay, so I think the problem is related to when I first install WP and or import an export file. When you get to the section after you submit the file to assign authors, you have a field for all the users already on the blog. For example;

    1. Import author: Test (Test)
    or create new user with login name: {empty field}
    or assign posts to an existing user: {drop down menu to select users}

    So no matter what I do or what option I go for, I’m still not able to do what I did before, which was to go into any post and have the option to change \ edit the author of that post. I talked with my host’s tech support and the only thing that can be done is to just create another user and log into that user and create the post that way.

    However with one of my sites I have multiple users that contributed to posts and they all say admin. So is the only option to recreate each post under their UN and never have the ability to edit?

    Please say that isn’t so! Or at the least, there’s a plugin for this issue.
