After installing this plugin no users are able to login to the dashboard. Urgh! :(

Simple and perfect

I don't know why it has less number of users when it is sooo simple and best option.

Easy to install and very useful
By , for WP 3.9.1

This is an essential plugin, since wordpress doesn't allow to change the username. This is the only option. Excellent work.

Works as advertised
By , for WP 3.5.1

The plugin works as advertised. I installed it on my WordPress site, changed my username, logged out, and logged back in without any troubles.

Admin changer was easy to install
By , for WP 3.4.2

I uploaded this and installed it - very easy to do. I appreciate getting rid of "Admin" as my user name. I will be tracking my spam to see if this continues to hold strong. Thank you, Miller

Used on Multisite
By , for WP 3.4.2

A really good idea to prevent dictionary attacks from succeeding. So many of us, when we start out, have never heard of dictionary attacks, and using the same login name as a display name is just asking for trouble.

I used this on a multisite installation without problems, except that I had to reinstate multisite admin status to myself - fortunately I keep an alternate superadmin identity in a locked drawer!
