I was set as the founder but my permissions werent full and Change post author was set to NOKevin Clark wrote:As you're on subsilver the options are in slightly different places. You need to open the topic, select the moderator control panel then click Post Details in the panel on the left under their username. Then you see a screen with their post in and the option to change the username underneath it.
From the link in your profile, you're using phpBB2 not phpBB3.BevH wrote:I need to change an author too now, but I don't know how to get to the Moderator Control Panel you describe here. I can edit posts of all users but I dont see a specific moderator panel? I can see the Administrator Panel, but not where in that I can do these things?
Can you tell me how I change permissions to allow me to change authors and then how to find the Moderator Control Panel?
Thanks very much
Thanks a lot mate. That really helped.topdown wrote:ACP > Permssions tab > Groups forum Permssions > Administrators > Highlight the forum or all of the forums >

Please help! We can discuss in this new topic: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... #p10871515[Mod Request] Admin can post as Anyone/change Post Author faster?
Hi,No automatic code to do this is available today to my knowledge, so I guess I'll be doing that myself. I'll be reposting all of the topics, posts... and assigned them to the appropriate member, by the help of the "Admin can change post author" function, default in PhpBB MCP.My old High School class forums are on a free forum site that doesnt allow database backup. We abandoned that crappy service a long time a go. Now I've moved to a phpbb-custom made board.
Still now I want to extract / copy the posts from that old forum to the new phpbb forums, as they are all memories of my high school time.
But the thing is, if I want to change author of just 1 post, currently I have to go through so many steps. My plan would take forever...
I see in Wordpress there is a selection for Admin upon posting to choose whatever user he wants to be:
So I am hopeful for PhpBB
Someone has already made a similar mod for PhpBB2
Notice the "2 way arrows" at the top right
http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 5&t=442698
Could someone possibly make it for for PhpBB3?
A mod that allows Admin to Drop-down select a username at posting to assign that user to the post, and a Drop-down box at the top-right of every post alongside with the "OK" button for quick changing the author of the viewing posts/topic
Please help, I really need that one. That would help massively my effort in recreating our community.
Many thanks in advance
