    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?

    Can I just check, who can actually make the change, is it only admin?

    At this time only the admin can change the author of a post.

    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.

    Does this change 1 post by that author name or is there an option to change all posts by that author?
