Currently I am developing a newspaper site. Single post has title>meta>image>content. post meta includes author name and post date.
I was hopping to replace author meta with kind of news category. being newspaper mostly we do not want to use name of individual reporter or writer on post meta instead some thing like- 'desk report' ,'international desk' ,'sports desk' or 'senior correspondence' etc.
now, this problem can easily be solved by changing the nick name of writers profile. but in this case this has to be independent of profile because one reporter might be writing to many department or posts might moved from one dept to another after publishing etc..
Is it possible that reporter/ admin can assign/reassign news to this dept/category.. which also show up in post meta section instead of author ?
Please help me sort this out. Please see the screen shots.
