Is there a way for me to change the author of an article to one of my users' accounts? I have a vague memory of seeing something about this several weeks back, but can't find it now...thanks!

Machinari, I might end up using your code, but I'm going for the quickest soluition here...so I grabbed Tokyoahead's AddOn.

Awesome add-on! I have a user who occasionally enters brilliant posts...but in the Forum area, and I need those posts to be articles, not forum posts. This lets me cut-n-paste, then change the author so it looks like my user entered it.

Thanks!

A followup...the "this download" link Mach provided above delivered me to a solution I really like, written by Tokyoahead.

I released a new version of this static page, reducing the overheads when you have MANY users, stories, comments or links
