    Hello - I have recently started a blog, last couple of months, and it is going well. I have started a couple of other blogs, but if I post in these it has the same user name displayed as the first blog.

    I want to run 3 blogs on differnt topics, first blog is a joint one and I (didn't realise at the time)but I have the name of the blog, as the user name, and that comes up with each post as the posted by display name. Which works ok.

    The other blogs, I want my own name to come up as the posted by . . . but from what I can see, the display name as will be the same for all the blogs. Is there a way around this?

    Or, do I need to set up a separate/alternative account with WordPress, and then transfer the blogs to these, with my own name as the user name?

    Thank you for your help.

    Go to : /wp-admin/users.php
    Click the Edit below the user you want to edit (it can be yourself).
    It will redirect to
    /wp-admin/user-edit.php?user_id=xy&wp_http_referer=%2Fwp-admin%2Fusers.php (value of xy is variable, for first admin its 11)
    page
    Scroll to the section saying Name
    Fill your name things rightly.
    Select from you choice from dropdown - "Display name publicly as"
    Scroll to the bottom (of the webpage...) and hit update user button.

    Or, do I need to set up a separate/alternative account with WordPress, and then transfer the blogs to these, with my own name as the user name?

    No as you can see.
    But never use the first account as admin. Create 3-4 accounts, make another admin, login from second admin account and demote (or rather kick out the first admin) the first account to subscriber. This is to prevent to get hacked.

    Hello - Thank you very much for your help. But I need more help.

    When I click the Edit below the Username it takes me to:

    /wp-admin/users.php?wp_http_referer=%2Fwp-admin%2Fusers.php%3Fwp_http_referer%3D%252Fwp-admin%252Fusers.php%26orderby%3Dname%26order%3Ddesc&page=grofiles-editor

    Where I can update the profile but not the users. I do not get the options that you describe.

    Also, you mentiom that it is helpful to create 3-4 accounts, and to make another admin etc., I do not know how to do that.

    Many thanks.
