WordPress - Changing the author of a post

An admin or editor has the ability to edit the author of the post. This will be the person receiving payment. By default the user who creates a post is the author.  

Here's how to change the author of a post or pay a different freelancer:

You can use Quick Edit or change the author in the confirmation page.

Use Quick Edit


  1. From the Posts page, hover the mouse over the post's title.
  2. Click on Quick Edit.
  3. Choose an author from the list of users.
  4. Click the Update button to confirm.



 You can also change the recipient of the Payment in Ebyline, right before confirming payment.

  1. Click "Pay Now" for your WordPress post
  2. Sign into your Ebyline editor account (or create a new one)
  3. Make any changes needed on the confirmation screen.
  4. Click "Pay now" when ready.
