    Hello, my question is if it's possible to change thread author?

    It's because im fired my older forum admin, and he made was making the news at news and annoucements section. So all former news and annoucements will remain at its name, so i want to change it to the new forum admin.

    I hope it can be possible, i dont want to rebuild all threads :(

    There is nothing built in to do this (I'm not sure if there's an add-on).

    You may have to ask Chris in the resource discussion thread.

    Have you followed the full install instructions?:

    I've just installed this on my test site.

    You need to set the permission to change the thread starter in the desired usergroup:

    Then you should be able to see this:
