Works PERFECTLY!!

I dont know what people are crying about? It works excellent. I just installed and activated the plugin, went to the menu and instead of my regular admin-nick I just changed to a new nick and pressed update. Voila.. Done in 10 sec…

Not working and no response in Support

Did not work for me: “The new one cannot be stored due to non existing mysql_real_escape_string function”. I see others with this error in the Support section, from as long as six months ago, with no response.

Not working on my multisite

Thanks for the plugin. I really wanted it to work though.

While logged in as super admin, clicking “Settings” beside the plugin name in the Plugins menu, it gives me this:

You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.
