    At the top of the screen is a grey button called "Screen Options" - pul that down and make sure the "Post Author" box is checked.

    Really? What version of MU are you running? I checked all three installs here and it's in 2.5, 2.6 and 2.7. If it's not in there for you then you must be using some plugin that is taking it out. You do have multiple authors, right? Perhaps the thing doesn't show if you only have one person who can edit. I don't know.

    As a matter of fact the author option is not even in there at all!

    Yes multiple authors and no new plugins 2.7, we have been fine for over a 2 weeks now running?

    Hmm, then I would have to say something, either a plugin or corrupt file, has caused it to go away. I have no other ideas at this time - anyone else?

    I started to look a liitle bit closer into php file for plugin more fields and somehow when i query it it will cause some errors, so it appears this is the problem with it, i updated the plugin yesterday to 1.2.6
    now it has a new update to 1.2.7???

    And the blog in questions has multiple authors assigned to it?

    Yes it is the more fields Plugin that appears to be causing the problem with these fields?

    Deactivated plugin and about 7 more options showed up into the fields?
    Thanks for the heads up

    It appears that the new update (1.2.7) this morning with More Fields Plugin Solves this issue with dissapearing fields in post edit.
    So if anyone else is having this issue update to 1.2.7 and all is back to normal!!

    Going to bump this.

    I have the latest version of WPMU. I am the admin and created a load of new blogs and on some blogs created the first blog on a subblog. I have since added a User to the subblog and he/she is an admin. When I go to edit post, there is no Post Author dropdown menu.

    Why?!

    Do I need to login in as the other user and then delete and recreate the post in his name?

    It's a bug currently in trac, but no solution yet. You can read about the work around here though:

    Ok, so I had to login as the nonAdmin guy and could change it that way.

    Glad there is a bug about it because it certainly seems strange the admin can't change it :)

    I updated trac with a potential fix on this one. Now don't go out willy nilly and implement it on a production server, as I'm not sure there aren't unforeseen consequences, but if you want to do some testing and post a comment to trac, that'd be great.

    I was wondering about this problem myself.
    Will keep tabs on the trac ticket.

    Thanks Deanna!
