    Good trick. This will hard code the author name for all posts. Is there another way to actually assign author name to specific posts? I am trying to import from WordPress to Blogger and getting stuck at this.

      That's exactly what I want to do, move an existing post to another user on the same blog.

      Did you find out how to do it?

    Thanks for the tip - I applied with success!

    However, I do not see the change on the mobile interface (IOS). Is there any advise on what to change in the code in order to get the same result also on the mobile interface?
