How to change user associated with submission?

Postby jrshaffner » Sat Oct 29, 2011 6:50 pm

An article was submitted by someone other than the author, though the author's name and email were listed as such for the submission. But now it is the person who submitted the article who is associated with the submission in terms of following it through the editorial process instead of the author's account. Is there anyway to change this? That is, change the person associated with a submission? Thank you!

Hi jrshaffner,

My apologies for the extreme delay in responding -- your post was trapped in a moderation queue we don't generally use.

To change the user assigned to a submission, you'll need to go to the database. The column is the "user_id" column in the "articles" table -- set that to the desired value from the "users" table.
