When posts are imported to Typepad, the blog owner will be assigned as the author of all imported posts. Even if the imported posts were created by multiple authors originally, the imported posts are created within the blog owner's account during import, and the blog's owner will be assigned as the author of all imported posts.

The author of the posts will need to be reassigned to the original author after import. You can use the More Actions tools from the Posts listing for the blog to change the author of multiple posts at once. Learn more.
