In my settings menu I have my name to publicly display as Emily, which it does on blog posts but on my author archives it shows my username.
want it to show:
I don't want my username in the url of my archives for obvious reasons.
One of the first things I was told to do for security purposes was change the user account "admin" to a different name but if anyone can find out my username by looking at my archive url there is still a security breech.
I don't want to use a plug-in. I would rather add code somewhere to change the user nicename. I tried doing it through my phpmyadmin on my hosting but it messed up my whole site.
