How to I change author name on existing posts?

    I recently transferred my blog from to .com. When it was self-hosted, I had multiple authors contributing to the site and I thought that they had all been transferred correctly when I imported the content.

    Unfortunately, this is not the case. I have invited the users to become authors on but I have one big problem that I can’t fix.

    All their content has been attributed to me! This was not the intention of the move and I want to reassign the posts to their original authors but I can’t find a way of doing that.

    I read on a forum post that changing the theme may hide the author so that at least posts wouldn’t display my author bio on articles I didn’t write but:
    1. I like the feature and it works well for correctly attributed posts as a link back to the author’s main blog
    2. I can’t find a suitable theme that doesn’t show author details.

    I need to be able to change the author name, not hide mine, so is there a way of doing this short of asking the authors to delete and repost (which will probably put them off using the site altogether)?
