Creator assignment of articles

Post by vrrc » Mon Jan 14, 2019 1:15 pm

While setting up the website with the latest Joomla, I had created a test user (non-superuser) so the front end behaviour could be tested. I created some articles using that test user. Once I finished my testing, I deleted that user (at the backend).

I had a new user apply for registration. Once I Ok'ed the user, the previous articles created by the test user were suddenly reassigned to the new user. I had expected that the articles created by the test user to default back to the superuser. The situation was corrected in the backend as soon as I was aware of it.

Any recommendations on how to handle a situation like I have just described beyond hand editing the articles in the backend? (new user creates articles and later on decides to deregister)
