Handing Over The Admin Logon (2 posts)

    Running 2.9 now.

    I need to hand over the admin logon to the actual owner of the blog. They have their own logon that has admin privileges, but I want them to own the actual Admin logon.

    The problem occurs when I put their email in as the address in the Admin profile. The error is "This email is already registered, please choose another one."

    I don't want to delete their user, because it will delete all of their posts also. Does anyone know how to do this?

    You can delete the old account and during the delete process you will be prompted to move the post to a new user. Or you can change the email address of their admin account to a different email and put the correct email address in for the site admin.
