Importing from a WP export file creates new users as subscribers instead of authors
|Reported by:||laurentlasalle||Owned by:|
When importing a WP export file (from Tools > Import > WordPress), the system asks if the blog administrator wants to create new users (if the authors from that export file differs from those already registred in the system). The role attributed to these new users is "Subscriber", which is a role that doesn't allow them to write nor publish posts.
I wanted to change the author of a newly imported post and since I was the only user with the required level to publish post content, the "Author" option wasn't available through the Quick Edit option. I just lost like 10 minutes trying to figure out why... o_O
