Add batch changing for author and date

Post by annahersh » Wed Nov 11, 2020 3:57 am

I have a client who dropped a publisher and wanted to move all their 1,372 articles to a different author, and of course individual editing would be a major tedious process. I had to make a system plugin to handle the task.

I think adding batch author change and even batch date change would be excellent value.

I agree with you. The feature of batch author change will solve the problem.

Does the old author still need to login on the site?

You could have changed the name of the user.

sit could also be done with an update SQL query.
