Looks good; I already made this for personal use so it will be interesting to see your approach :)

This is a good plugin. Unfortunately, the last edited is missing here. The timestamp should not be updated or should there be the possibility, also the edited from to adapt to the author.

I will consider your suggestions rülps. What do you mean by "the last edited is missing here" and "the edited from to adapt to the author"? Can you elaborate more please? Thank you! :)

Hi, I have the plugin installed and activated in MyBB 1.8.22 and the administrators group has permission to edit the author. However when I edit the first post I have no option to change the author. I am using both the default MyBB theme and Flatty.



Regards, Hugo.

I’ll check it out tomorrow as this is a quite old plugin and there are really a few users whom are currently using it. Yours is the first report so it might be not compatible with the latest MyBB release.

Thanks for checking it out! Take your sweet time :) I don't really need it just something that might come in handy once in a while and is handy to have there when it does.
