Hello, I’m setting up bbPress for a client and I need to change the author of some forums to assign her as the author and not me. I can change the author of topics but there’s no option to do the same with the forums…
Appreciate any suggestions…
interesting – yes that is not there in the front end
If you have skills with accessing the database then you can easily change it there, let me know and I’ll give you some help.
Otherwise come back with the numbers of the forums you want to change (you can see this in the url of the page when you edit a forum – eg
is shown for forum number 2927
so give me a list, and the user ID of the author you want to change them to, and I’ll give some some code
I have access to the db, I will dig a little more there. It would be really helpful if this was added as a feature.
forum author is in the wp_posts table, under post_author – just change it to the ID of the user you want to be the author
Done, thank you!
