Hello all, I’m hoping some knowlegable folks here can lend me a hand.

Currently we’re using the Elastico theme https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFtP3angBRw, which has unfortunately been discontinued as most know, and with it any support from the developer, which is why I hope some experts here will be able to help.

Expanding my site to multiple “authors”, I wanted to assign pre-existing custom portfolio posts to my new members/authors. Unfortunately the “Author” Column in the Portfolio Post Type isn’t added or visible(see image http://www.thecareergamer.com/web/noauthor.jpg), so I’m unable to reassign authors to past posts. I did manage to get the author column listed by simply adding

"author" => __( 'Author','si_theme' ), in the $columns array in post_types.php

That said I can now see the author column on the portfolio page… but now I don’t have the dropdown list available like this http://www.thecareergamer.com/web/authordropdown.jpg nor do I have it in the post edit screen. Unfortunately I have no clue where to enable this.

I can provide code snippets and such if need be. Right now I’m thinking it’s a simple block of code that’s missing? I tried a few things over the weekend and failed miserably, which is why I’m asking for some assistance :)

Any help would be greatly appreciated. At this point I just need the “Author” dropdown to appear either in Quick Edit or the edit post page. This is a custom post type btw. If someone can point me in the right direction that would be equally great. Really need some help here.

Look for some code container something like: ‘supports’ => array(‘title’,’editor’), in there you also need to put ‘author’ like: ‘supports’ => array(‘title’,’editor’,’author’)

This will make the option available in a custom post type

ChapterThemes, thank you very much. I knew it was something deceptively simple. Everything works as expected now. Appreciated!
