    Hi,

    I am admin of my site and I would really like to change the username 'admin' to something else as I think it is causing my author.php not to show admin profile when I click an author link.

    Can I changer username - admin?

    Thanks

    To actually change the login name of the admin user, you have to edit the mysql database directly. It's in the wp_users table.

    not username, there is a field for "nickname". Below that, will be a drop down menu, that you can choose the nickname.
    Or, go into the database.
