Change ownership of "Made this a banner on" or Closed on" (small action posts)

Is it possible to change ownership of these pseudo-posts? (Or whatever they are called!)


The small action posts? You can’t change the ownership of those as far as I know. The small action would have to be deleted and the topic opened and closed again (for example) with whoever you want to own the small action closing the topic.

This is a curiosity contribution… :slightly_smiling_face:

Even though there’s not an admin wrench on the small action posts, they still get a post id - is it possible to change ownership of them through the API?

Thanks for the idea. I’ve never used the API before but would be happy to give it a go if someone would confirm that it would work here… :slight_smile:

Would I just type this at the command line?

curl -X POST "[TOPIC_ID]/change-owner.json" \
-H "Content-Type: multipart/form-data;" \
-H "Api-Key: ................." \
-H "Api-Username: ..............." \
-F "post_ids[]=[POST_ID]" \
-F "username=[NEW_USERNAME]"

I can work out the [TOPIC_ID] from the URL, the API key/username from Settings-API, and [POST_ID] from looking at Chrome’s dev tools.

I’m afraid I’m punching above my weight on this one. :slightly_smiling_face: I’ve also not used the API yet, but I hope someone else can chime in. :crossed_fingers:
