How to change blog author after blog published?

Curious how to update the author for a blog that has already been publised on Community 7.1.

  • For the actual blog or an individual blog post created in a blog with multiple owners/authors?

  • In reply to Luke D:

    For an individual blog post. Desire is to have an individual (who is setup as a blog owner/author) write a blog post on behalf of another user (who is not setup as a blog owner or author).

    Are you looking for a C# solution for this?  At first glance (in 7.x) I don't see a mechanism in place via the Public Api to set the blog author, and they way you describe it the permissions system may block it.  I believe the author is set in the background and it is based on the contextual user when the create command is executed.

    Are you implementing some sort of Guest blogging feature and just need to render  out who the author is?  If so, you may be able to just store some extended post attributes and render them as opposed to actually changing the author property.
