Blog authors feature request
I'm developing a new site for a client, I've given them full admin access but cannot assign them as author of existing posts as they do not appear in the list of authors.
According to https://forum.grabaperch.com/forum/08-28-2014-blog-authors-question, they'll show up in the drop down as potential blog author for other posts only once they've published a post first themselves - is this true?
Do I really need to wait for the client to publish a post before I can change the author of pre-populated posts? I could reset their login details and publish a post myself on their behalf but this isn't ideal and they're already editing content on the staging server. Please let me know if there's a better solution.
May I request that this be fixed or log it as a feature request? i.e. that blog authorship be assignable to new users who haven't yet logged in and posted? Many thanks.
