Adding contributor to be removed later

    I’ve been looking at the user guide and old forum posts and I’m still not sure I get it…

    I’m starting a project for which I’d like to give several people Contributor status, but I may want to remove Contributor status when it’s over but not remove the posts or change the bylines (I don’t want it to appear I wrote the posts when they were someone else’s work, that’s called plagiarism). I’ve seen Replies answer both ways, but they’re quite old, like 2009 and 2011.

    So is it possible to add a Contributor, s/he does a few posts, then I remove the Contributor, and have the posts and byline stay put? Does this hold true for an Author as well (I have one Author who no longer posts and I’ve been reluctant to remove the name since I don’t know what will happen to the posts or byline, but now I need to find out). If I can’t remove a Contrib or Author without the posts changing, I’ll just make other arrangements for guest posts.

    The blog I need help with is
