Hello again,

I was wondering if it is possible to have blog posts with multiple authors; I've tried putting up blog posts and then have another user (with admin rights) edit the post - unfortunately, that user's contribution isn't reflected in the blog author list. So:

1) Is it possible for non-admin users to edit other blog posts?
2) Is it posisble to set the software up so that edits by any other user place their name in the blog author field along with the original poster?

Thanks in advance for any help with this.

Blog editors cannot edit each other posts - this could lead to a chaos in most scenarios and is not considered a good practice security-wise. You can have unlimited blogs and unlimited authors in each blog, but individual posts are protected from interferance by other authors (to avoid "somebody stole my post" type of scenarios).
I will check to see how difficult would be to implement this in some of the minor upgrades that will follow the major upgrade next week.
