Thank you @AndyB sir for this useful add-on. It worked. :)

A couple of things to improve this add-on:
  • It seems that it does not update user post count, the effected users post count should be updated at the same time.
  • When we type user name it does not support XenForo's auto complete function. That would make sure we are typing correct spelling of a user name.

Thanks for this great addon :)

Is there a possibility to change the usergroup permissions for changing the author?

It would be great if you could create a phrase for the text "Change Date" and "Change Author", so that I can translate it without TMS :)

One minor issue here. In overlay it always shows #1 for post number.

I've fixed it temporarily in your Post.php by replacing:
$viewParams = array(
       'postId' => $postId,
$post = $this->getModelFromCache('XenForo_Model_Post')->getPostById($postId);
$viewParams = array('post' => $post);
It's how you implemented this in Change Date add-on. I've just copied missing lines. ;)

Thanks for this nice product.
