    Hi!
    I'm looking for a way to allow authors to be able to change their login username without deleting their permission to edit some pages that I had set.
    I tried this plugin. It actually did let the possibility to change his username, but unfortunately, the capability to edit some pages that the admin give to an author with previous username disapears so the author with his new username can not edit pages anymore.
    Any leads?

    hi,

    You can add new user from wordpress user profile.
    Go to Admin->User->Add new User
    fill the form and info and give role as a Administrator.

    So, you can login with that different username and password without change or deleting permission.
