Hi @AndyB, thank you for this add-on. Would it be possible to add an option, putting the "change author" link also to the thread options menu?

It will be fantastic if it allow to change author of your own post. I could change author for post by everyone except me.

Thanks for this Andy.

I needed to be able to write posts in behalf of some less active members, I did consider a "log in as..." type plugin but they have privacy implications and I read they can trip duplicate account detectors. Yours works well, I can write a post for someone then change the author to them. Also useful is that after writing a post and changing the author, "unapproving" it means the new thread author can effectively view it in private, to check it's OK, before I approve it and make it live.

Thanks AndyB,

Great and needed.

When I change the author, it doesn't change its information in "Recent Activity" page. Any idea please?
