attributing a post to a different user

On a different WP site, I was able to make a post and attribute it to a different user. I have a writer who prefers to email me her stuff and I want to give her the byline. It might have been built into the theme, idk. Is there a way to do this?

    1. Create a user for them in your system.

    and then you either

    2. Write a new post, there should be an Authors box in the form, if not then click on the Screen Options tag at the top of the page, and you should be able to tick it for it to display.

    3. Select the author you want to associate with the post.

    or for existing posts.

    2. Click the quick edit link under the post title and you’ll see the author name drop down in the quick edit details and can change that.
