Change Poster Name
« on: March 15, 2019, 09:18:20 AM »
My site is a hockey website for amateurs. A lot of my traffic tends to be club board members, coaches and managers. They're older and no matter how many times I go over instructing how to format posts, they don't get it.

So, I post for them and I catch a lot of flack from other parent for posting competitor info. I've asked the same people who always ask me to post for them to figure it out but they just don't get it. I wind up spending more time trying to fix everything they've posted and find it easier for me to do it for them.

With that said, is there any way for me to change the member name of the poster to those I post for after the post is made? It'll save me a lot of headaches with trying to explain myself in reply emails.

Thank you to all in advance.

When you upgrade to SMF 2.1, you'll want this one.

I promise you nothing.

At this point I can't upgrade I have too many custom mods. But thank you and it's great others are continuing to develop new mods for the new version.
