Hello,

1. Can we change the Author of a Forum post after its published ? Like I posted it and now I want that post under some other moderator's name, Is it possible ?

2. Can we hide the post modification logs visible at the end of the post ?

The first can be done, but it is not a feature. You would need to get it done by modifying the database, but you have to be VERY careful with that, make sure you make backs ups before doing that. You have to look for a row that shows all latest posts, and it shows the author, but then you also need to modify some other rows, I can't remember very well, so I cannot give you detail instructions. I remember having to do that because of exactly the same reason, I wanted to change the moderator who originally posted a specific thread, but I didn't just want to create a new topic and lose all views/likes/replies etc.

Second can also be done, it's a feature, and you can disable that from Dashboard >> WPForo >> Settings >> Posting & Editor Settings then scroll down the page and find the option for "Display discussion editing information" (It might say it differently, my forum is in Spanish) and make sure that NO is selected to the right.

Cheers!

Thank You @realact for the suggestion regarding hiding the editing logs.

@robert I guess that method changes all the topics and posts from one Author to another Author, What I was asking is ... Can we change the Author of some specific posts like just 5-7 posts and leaving other posts under the name of that old Author...??

Sorry for the late reply.
