There may be times in WordPress when you need to change the same value in multiple posts, i.e., author name. You can use ‘Bulk Edit’ to quickly implement the change.
1. Login into the WordPress admin area.
2. Click All Posts.
3. Select the posts for which you want to change the author by clicking on the box to the left of each title. A check mark will be inserted.
4. Go to Bulk Actions (near the top), and on the drop-down list select Edit, then click the Apply button. A Bulk Edit section will open up.
5. Make the change to the author name (and/or comments, status, pings, categories, etc.)
6. Click the Update button of the Bulk Actions section to save your changes.
Voilà – there you go!

As The Computer Spirit and facilitator of the Websites and Coffee workshops, I hear client horror stories – much too often – of working with web designers and developers. You’ve probably heard them too, or worse, experienced them. Ya know, like the web guy who thought he knew everything, was arrogant enough to express it, then fired you, leaving you without any user info about your website so you could move forward. Or, the web person who very suddenly dropped dead, and his office was so disorganized there was no clue that you, let alone your website, even existed. Then there’s the one about the designer who up and decided to relocate to Bali – without leaving a trace.
Yikes – enough already!
Even if you do not or cannot build your own website, it doesn’t mean that your head has to be in the sand. You can still be empowered to some degree in your website project, which will help to minimize the fallout if your web person disappears off the face of the earth for one reason or another, and it seems like your website is hostage to the situation.
