Hi there
We would like to change a question author name, but the question author is not registered as user, so I’m wondering where or how could this be done.
I already tried the Plugin “Change Author” and tried to change the author to another one i created. But it just wouldn’t change after saving and jump back to the original author.
Thank you for your support

At the moment, you can change the author’s name of the question from Dashboard > Questions > Edit Question.

Hi Dominic,
No I can’t change it there. I have a field with a dropdown “Autho”, but the name in the dropdown is not the name of the question author, and if i change it to another author, it won’t save that change, after the reload it’s still with that other name (which is not the question author).

I have checked and see that you want to change the author not registered on your site. At the moment, the WordPress can not show the anonymous user/author. So, the plugin does not support to change the anonymous user for the question as you wish.

Ok, so there is no possibility to change that name right?

Yes, the plugin does not support to change the author not registered
