[resolved] How to Change Admin Username (4 posts)

    Hi,

    With WordPress 3.0.1, I have already created the "Admin" account using the username "admin".

    I know I could've changed this at initial creation with WordPress 3.0.1 but can I change this "admin" username to something else now or is it too late?

    If so, how?

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure how to manually do it, but there is a plugin that I use, called wp-Optimize. It simply cleans up old spam comments and old drafts, but there is an option to also change the admin username which worked perfect for me. Very simple to use.

    Create another administrator user and then login as new administrator user and delete "admin" user.

    Thanks for the replies. I think I will take Kailash's approach - didn't realise it was that simple as I assumed you could only have one Admin role.

    ps I am a newbie to WP.
